Beach Ed day at Brighton Beach

What a fantastic time Room 2 had at Brighton Beach for beach ed with the Surf Life saver instructors.
We learnt a lot about being safe at the beach and in the water.
We learnt all about the different jobs surf life savers have to do!
Our favourite moments were - building sandcastles, pretending to be surf life savers, swimming & playing in the water.
It was a gorgeous sunny day - we can't wait to do it all again one day!!!

Meet Charlie Bear!!!!

A big welcome to the newest member of Room 2 - Charlie Bear.
Charlie Bear had heard so many great things about us that he decided to come for a visit . . .
and it turned out that he had so much fun that he decided he would just have to stay forever with us!
We didn't want Charlie Bear to feel lonely each night in the classroom on his own - so as a special treat because he is such an awesome cool bear - he gets to have sleepovers with the Room 2 children!
Haere Mai Charlie Bear!

We were very lucky to have some visitors from the S.P.C.A today (Tuesday 15 May).
Marjorie Orr from the S.P.C.A came to see us and she brought along two of her dogs called Kudos  and Ralph.

They were lovely friendly dogs and the children had a great time giving them lots of pats and tummy rubs.

We all learnt about the importance of caring for our pets and how we must take care of all animals!
Marjorie also taught us about how to be safe around dogs.

They showed us an awesome experiment using vinegar & baking soda.
We discovered that when you mix the baking soda & vinegar together in an empty film canister and put the lid on . . . it makes the film canister shoots high up into the air!!!

Thanks so much Georgia & Andrew!!!
