Telling the Time - Authentically

After learning to tell the time Room 3 noticed a large clock on the 
Junior courtyard.
"Mrs Laburn, it has no hands!"
"Well, we can fix that!"
Four children acted as the big hand and 
three children acted as the little hand.
Watch what we do as someone calls out the time.

Have you learnt how to tell the time?

Playing Road Patrols - Road Safety

Aryaan and George are playing road patrols. 
They are teaching Maia, Kevin, Gina and Alvin 
how to cross the road safely.
Can you see how they look both ways for traffic 
before they put the signs out?
And check again before they let the children cross the road.
Maia, Kevin, Gina and Alvin don't run across the road they walk.
Notice how they don't talk to the patrols. 
They don't want to distract them from checking the road for traffic.
Great job Aryaan and George - you are excellent patrols!

Keeping Safe
Road safety is a thing that you should learn if you want to keep safe and have a healthy life. Here are the things that you should do if you want to keep safe  and have a healthy life. Never talk to strangers  because they might be dangerous. You should not play on the road because you might get run over by a car. Watch out for sneaky drive ways. If there is a pedestrian crossing around use it because it's safer to use. Wear a helmet when you ride your  bike, scooter, or skate board so you don't crack your head open if you fall on the concrete. You should always go to the park with an adult because you might get stolen by a stranger.  BY ASHIRA  
Keeping Safe
Road Safety helps you. These are some of the things you need to do.
1.  Never run on the road because when you are dead you are dead.
2. Never talk to strangers because they can hurt you.
3. Watch out for sneaky driveways because a car could be backing out of their driveway.
4. If there is a pedestrian crossing close cross there because otherwise you could get hit by a car.
5. Wear a helmet when you're riding a bike because if you fall off you can get brain damage.
6. Play in your backyard because it is safer.
7. When you go to the park you need a parent to supervise you because somebody could take you.
8. Don't worry about a ball that goes on the road. Don't run on the road to get it.
Those are some things how to keep safe.

I love my Grandparents because....

Our Annual Grandparents Day 
On Friday the 2nd of November Point View School had our very own annual Grandparents Day and in the morning, we skyped Robbie’s Grandparents and we skyped them from New Zealand all the way to Scotland. It takes 24 hours to get there! Robbie went to Room 4 and got his sister Jade and then his mum came and got some questions to ask their Grandparents. One of the questions were – What was your school like? So we got an answer and we moved on and we had morning tea and after that our Grandparents came and we had morning tea with our Grandparents and I went with Joshua he had two Grannys and two Poppas. Next Josh and I showed them around and we talked about what their school was like when they were at school. They brought some photos and then one Granny was saying she had hair like mine and then her teacher smacked her on the head and it was bleeding! Next we did a Jump Jam exercise for them and we did Folk dancing and the Grandparents joined in! After that we did some math games and Anya, Tiffanny, Zana, Alex and me did a fraction pizza game and I won! Next we played a different game. You play it like you have some cards and there is a sum and a question and you have to tell what you think the answer is and put it in and look at the answer. Then we had lunch and we had delicious lunch. After lunch we had a Grandparents day assembly.
