Learning Calligraphy

This week we learnt how to do calligraphy during our Mandarin lesson.

We were practicing our numbers while learning to do calligraphy. We first learnt a little about the history. Then we learnt how to hold the brush - two fingers in front, two fingers behind and the thumb is resting on the side. We used mats that looked like we were using ink but we were only dipping our brush into water!

Thanks to our fabulous Mandarin teacher Liu Lao Shi for a great lesson!

Safe Walking

This week we have had Constable Gordon in to teach us about safe walking. The Safe Walking unit is about how to safely cross a road, how to look out for cars and driveways and seatbelt safety. We have learnt a lot this week in the classroom and then we put it into practice on a real road. 
We got to go in Constable Gordon's police car to practice buckling up while in a booster seat. We know we have to wait until we are 148cm or if we are over 7 years old.

Thank you Constable Gordon!

Buddy Reading

On Friday, we had our buddies from Room 6 join us in Room 9. We read to each other and then shared what we has read using Book Creator (a programme which allows us to make a book of our own from scratch). It was a lot of fun having them visit us. We can't wait to see them again!
