Grandparents Day

Look at all the wonderful grandparents that visited our classroom on Friday 11th November.
We had such an exciting day!
We 'WOWED' our grandparents with our ICT skills, showed them around our classroom and the school, performed some folk dancing for them, had a picnic lunch, and shared some amazing Point View School talent at our grandparents day assembly.

Inquiry Learning - Kiwi Puppet Presentations

We decided to present our Inquiry Learning on the Kiwi as puppet shows. 
We used Australian animals because we thought it would be fun for our Quad blogging friends in Australia to watch. 

Koala: I was wondering how you search for your food?
Kiwi: I forage for food by scratching at the ground with my strong claws.
Koala: How do you know that worms are there?
Kiwi: I can smell worms that are buried in up to 3cm of earth. I use my beak to sniff for food.
Koala: How do you get the worms?
Kiwi: I make rapid stabs into worm tunnels using my beak as a spear.
Koala: Thanks for helping with my answers.
By Jacey and Orlando

Bat: Hello kiwi. Why are you brown?
Kiwi: The brown colours make me almost invisible in the dark.
Bat: What are your feathers like?
Kiwi: They are soft and fluffy.
Bat: It you lose your feathers what happens?
Kiwi: I will grow new ones.
By Benny and Tiffanny

Koala: Hi kiwi. What do you do during the day?
Kiwi: During the day I sleep in underground burrows I have dug or I find a log or hollow tree or thick vegetation to sleep in.
Koala: When do you come out?
Kiwi: I come out as soon as it is dark.
Koala: What do you do at night?
Kiwi: I leave my burrow to look for food.
Koala: Thanks for answering my questions.
By Mallika and Krishant.

Kookaburra: How big are kiwi eggs?
Kiwi: Just before kiwi lay their egg it is so huge it almost fills the kiwi's body and she has no room left for food. She stops eating three days before she lays the egg.
Kookaburra: Who sits on the eggs?
Kiwi: The male sits on the egg to keep it warm.
Kookaburra: When are the eggs laid?
Kiwi: In the spring the mother kiwi lays 1 or 2 eggs in a burrow.
By Neeve and Aum

Kangaroo: Hi I'm a kangaroo. How do you move around?
Kiwi: I have wings but I can't fly because they are very, very small.
Kangaroo: Can you run really fast?
Kiwi: Yes I can run faster than people. Kiwi can run swiftly with a side to side sway. The swaying helps me to balance.
Kangaroo: Can you swim?
Kiwi: Yes, some kiwi's can swim across rivers.
Kangaroo: Thank you for answering my questions kiwi.

An Australian Community

This term our Aussie friends Inquiry topic is ‘Our Community’. They went for a walk around their neighbourhood to see what is in their community. They took cameras and took photos of what they discovered. Then they made this voicethread using their photos to share what they saw in their community.
We are going to share with them what our community is like – so that they can learn more about us and where we live. They also want to see where we are the same and different.
 Does our community look the same as theirs? Do we have the same things as they do? 
During this week and next week Room 3 children will be taking photos of our community and then we will comment on the comparisons.

What differences and similarities can you see?
