New Entrant Singing

Every Friday we join with Tohora for singing. We enjoy singing our favourite songs together. It is a good way for us to mix with Tohora, learn everyone's name and make new friends. Just ask us and we could sing you a song!

Buddy Challenge Day

We had so much fun at Buddy Challenge Day. At first, some of us were a bit nervous, but our buddies helped us with all of the activities. Have a look at the photos to see how we were working together throughout the day.

Painting Like Monet

We had a wonderful day of art today. We looked at lots of paintings by Claude Monet. We noticed his paintings are very blurry and that he liked to paint things outside in nature. We wrote about what we could see in Monet's paintings during writing time.

Then we used cotton buds to paint a picture of a river scene with water and sky - Monet liked to paint water and sky, too. We aren't finished yet but here we are hard at work. Look at the concentration on our faces!

Our Word Power Friday

This morning we did word power, our word this week was WENT.
We had to write it lots of different ways for 3 minutes, then we would move on. We got to use ipods, write it on the computer, write it with paint, use chalk, paint brushes and whiteboard markers. Word power is great fun as it really helps us to remember important words.

We are learning to write basic sight words that will help us in the future, in writing and reading and lots of other areas!

Well done Leap Frogs, you are leaping ahead in LEAPS and BOUNDS!
It has been such a great time working with you at Russell Street School and I am so proud of you all!! I will miss you lots although will check your blog often to see all the exciting things you are up to!!!!
Jess! :)
