What could this be?

This morning Room Four received a large thick envelope. We had several guesses as to who it may be from. We discussed how we can discover who sent the mail without opening it, all we had to do was to look at the back of the envelope where the sender information was. We were super excited to find out it was from...  SANTA! He sent us a package explaining we are under Elf surveillance. In the envelope we received posters, a letter from Santa and a meet our Elf sheet.

We were a bit puzzled as to why we couldn't find our Elf. Was he/she hiding to well? We came to the conclusion that maybe he/she wasn't going to appear until we named him/her. We all wrote down a name on a piece of paper that we liked. The name with the most votes was the winner.

The winning name was.... Lockie Elfie. Lockie is a child in Room Four!

Once we had named him, he appeared! We found foot prints of magical dust in the classroom and Lockie Elfie hiding in the art area of the class. I think he is hiding there so he can make sure all the children are doing the right thing on the mat. This means they are focusing on the speaker, keeping their hands still and putting up their hands.

We will keep you all updated when Lockie Elfie makes his next move. We all need to be on our best behavior so that Lockie Elfie doesn't report us to Santa! That would be horrible.



Santa Letters

What a wonderful surprise we had when we all received letters from Santa! He is pleased to hear how fantastic Room Four has been this year, he knows we are trying really hard to follow the 3 R's (Respect, responsibility and resilience). Here are some photos of all the excitement.

Top Team

On Wednesday we were lucky enough to travel to Paroa School to compete in the Top Team Games. It was a brilliant day full of laughter, water and cooperation. What a fantastic day it was to play in the hot sun, lucky we had water challenges to cool us down!

Today we were very lucky to have some rabbits visit us in class. They were super cute! We decided we wanted to have a turn at drawing our own rabbits. Using Google Draw, we gave it a go. Here is a picture of mine and below are some pictures of the cute rabbits that visited us. Have a look on our blogs to see our drawings.
