As part of our topic study this term, we have been learning about volcanoes.
We have been especially interested to follow the eruption of the volcano Kalauea on the Big Island of Hawaii. It shows the awesome power of our Earth.

Here is some of our collage art and poetic writing about volcanoes.

Lambchops balls and autumn leaves

Hi Room 5!  Lambchops here! Speaking to you from  the Argyle Luxury Spa Resort.
Feeling good now, but it's been pretty rough getting clean, I must say.

Baby Doll came too. She isn't talking yet but we have made friends. Here we are in the bath having a long hot soak.

And here we are enjoying the view of the Luxury Spa Resort from the top of the airing rack.

Last time I was here they served guava juice.
I'm waiting for the staff to bring us some refreshments.

We decided to explore the place. This seems to be a place where there is lots of piece of wood all stacked up.
It's a nice sunny spot

Baby Doll went and climbed a huge boulder.
I had to go after her and stop her falling off.

Quite a nice view, though.

This is more like it. Luxury!
I wonder what has been happening in the classroom while we've been away?

We have been screen printing more autumn  leaves.

First you drop autumn leaves onto a piece of paper.
Then you print paint on top.

Jono came to school and taught us some large ball skills. Here we are practicing them.
