Yeehah! Bradley has been watching the number of visitors to our Blog. This week we had lots of lovely, positive compliments about our dancing from our friends at Wix Primary School in England. That gave us 1029 visitors. Today we had a celebration with...
Hundred's and Thousand's biscuits - just like Room 14 did!
We really liked that idea!
And look... we already have 1034 visitors today!
A big thank you to all the people that have visited
Room 14 had their own Blog Awards. They invited us to be an audience. All the children in Room 14 were dressed in their good clothes, they looked very smart. They put chairs out for us to sit on. We felt like very important guests.
Then Rebecca and Yussuf read out the award nominations and the winners.
We were nominated for the 'Best Use of Video Award' and the 'Best Class Blog Award'.
It was a tie, we shared the 'Best Class Blog Award' with K/D1. We cheered, what an honour! Thank you very much Room 14.
Tylah-Dawn and Nevaeh-Lee measured our garden space.
We planned where the plants would fit. We had to use lots of measuring and maths problem solving! We decided our garden is too small and we couldn't fit all of the plants in. We could only plant 2 tomato plants, 2 capsicums, 4 basil plants and a few spring onions.
When Kullan was in Room 1, he learnt that if you plant marigold flowers in your vege garden, they help keep the bugs off your plants. Snails do not like marigold flowers. This is called 'Companion Planting'.
Thanks Kullan, what a great idea! So we planted 4 marigold plants too!
Our vege garden needed some compost. Dugan got us a wheelbarrow of compost from our worm bins. Pooh! It didn't smell very nice but we know the plants will love the rich nutrients. We turned the dirt over in our garden, put the compost on top, then mixed it up.
We thought that was a really good idea for our school.
Bradley asked the Student Council
if they thought it was a good idea, and they agreed.
We planned how to tell all the classes.
We made 5 groups.
We planned a job for everyone in the group to do.
1. Tell the class about Litterless Lunch Day
2. Explain what it means, NOT to bring any wrapping to school.
3. Show everyone how much rubbish we collected from the playground.
4. Tell the classes about the rubbish videos we saw and how we are trying to save our planet.
We decided to make posters for each class
to put in their window and remind them every WEDNESDAY.
Maths Problem - How many children should work on each poster?
We sent Rochelle, in the office, an email
and asked her to put a notice
in the school newsletter.
We told all the Mums and Dads about
'Litterless Lunch Wednesday'
We practiced our speeches.
we watched ourselves!
We talked about what we did really well,
and what we could do to improve.
Listen to our speeches now!
Do you think we improved our speeches?
On Wednesday, Bradley and Kullan went to visit each class and gave all the children with 'Litterless Lunch' an Enviro card. Hope they win a prize at Positive Assembly on Friday! Well done Hamilton East School, you are helping to look after our environment.
We challenge each class to see if they can all be litterless next Wednesday. Which class do you think will win!
