Whiteboard Table

We have been getting some great new equipment to use in our classrooms this week. While Teachers were in Auckland they saw schools using whiteboard tables. We asked Mr Wright if he could paint our large table with whiteboard paint. In the photo below you see Mazzlin, Connor and Reece using the table to help with their Inquiry work.

Personification

Some of the personification written during our writing today.

The snow ran down the road.
The rain jumped on the ground.
The hail danced on the grass.
The sand walked into the sea.
The tree waved to us in the wind.
