The children will learn and practise what to do if there is a fire in a building or room they are in.

Have a fantastic Easter Break Everyone.
See you on Wednesday!

Room 4 had a visit from Easter Bunny yesterday.

We wrote a letter and guess what...
He paid us a visit!
Shayla with the left over carrot Easter Bunny didn't eat.

Look at the mess he made!
These are our Easter baskets and Easter Bunny's letter.

Lydia having a look at the mess he left.
Easter Bunny left carrot all over the floor - thanks Zade for tidying it up before Clive saw it. 
What a messy eater Easter Bunny is!

He wrote back to us and he did find some spare eggs.

He left two eggs for Rach at lunchtime!
Some Room 4 children even saw him in the playground.
While we were at Te Reo Maori and Rach was in a meeting he came back again and left eggs for all the children in Room 4. He put them in the baskets that we had made!

We are soooo lucky!

The Star of the Week was Eve B!
She is going to carry on next week too as it's a short week.
Thanks for all your help this week Eve.
You are a true Opawa Voyager and always try your best with everything. You are really good at helping others too.

Gymnastics with Christine
We have been learning to use the jungle gym, roly poly safely, bunny hop and cartwheel safely. We always warm up before we do our gymnastics.

Everyone helping to put the equipment away!

Next week is Christine's last week.
Room 4 will have a shared afternoon tea on Friday to say Thank You and Farewell.
Could everyone bring a small healthy something to share?
The focus for the afternoon tea is small and healthy. 

This week our shared book for reading was
Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
We had to hunt for punctuation in the story.

The letter of the week will be...

We will carry on with our Easter activities!

Who will find some interesting E items to share?

As we only have a 3 day week we will open 'News' up to the whole class this week. Don't forget you can email photos and pictures to Rach and you can present from the big screen.

We are becoming experts at presenting our news and using 'thick' questions to find out more about each other's news.

Have a super long weekend.
See you all on Wednesday.
