27th September 2007

Today was Lukes first day at Next Generation. He enjoyed watching the fish and the frog. We decided to clean the tanks today, so the children helped with this. We have also had the proscope out looking at our hands and also a blue ladybug that we found. The children had fun with water play today, since we had such a fine day :)

Friday 24th September.

Today at Next Generation we had an awesome day with many exciting things happening. The sun was finally out so we were able to go outside for most of the day. There were many cool things to look at for show and tell......like Nathan brought in a typewriter for us to look at.....not many childern had seen one of them. In the art room we made purple playdough and painted gorgeous pictures with water colour. outside we biked and enjoyed being outside. We had hot chips for afternoon tea....thanks Jeremy for going to get them.
For those of you that are on school holidays...have a great time with family and we will see you when you return.

Ayu uses google earth to show us her home.

This morning our wonderful student Ayu used Google Earth on our big screen to show us her country, her hometown and even her house! Ayu then took us on a journey around the world to Auckland, New Zealand. We love using Google Earth to visit places of interest. Where do you think we should visit next?
