Balloons visit Room 5!

On Sunday Stanley Avenue was lucky enough to have the Waikato Hot Air Balloon visit. They started very early, at 7, because that is the best time for balloons to set up - when there isn't much wind.
It was great to see students coming to see the big balloons - some of us were even lucky enough to have a ride!!!
A big thanks to the Waikato Hot Air Balloon Club for coming to our school and giving us the opportunity to see the awesome balloons.

Did you know about our school app?

Stanley Avenue is lucky enough to have their very own school app! Even better is that it is free to download! You can choose to get app notifications for your child's class or school wide - or both! You can also use the app to send in absentee information, get contact information and check notices.

Room 5's super heros!

We had another busy week this week and it was mostly centred around our writing . This week we made super hero capes and masks and then wrote about what our super power would be if we had one.
We also performed at assembly in our cool super hero gear. Here is a photo of us all dressed up and a few of our stories we wrote.

"My super power is lava. I am going to put it on the trees." By Ruby

"My super power is electric. I am going to electric other people." By Olivia

"My super power is to make ice. Then I can build a castle." By Navaya

"My super power is camouflage so I can sneak up on bad guys". By Luscous

" My super power is fire. I am going to light it." By Tamahou

Dress up writing

This week we had a fun writing session where we dressed up! After we had a play and talked about our character, we then wrote about who we were dressed up as. Here are the Room 5 students in their dressups and proudly showing off their writing.

Book fair fun!

Today we were lucky enough to go and check out the pirate themed book fair! It was an awesome opportunity for the children to see what books were for sale and check out the little things that they might like to buy with their pocket money. They each chose a book that they would like to maybe purchase and I recorded this information on a wishlist that was sent home today. Check out the class picture of the students with their favourite book they found at the fair.

The book fair is open until Thursday in the school library in the morning before school, at lunch time and after school. Heaps of great bargains to be had ! Don't forget to enter the daily competition too!!

Also Friday is dress up day! You can either get in theme as a pirate or dress up as your favourite book character, don't forget your gold coin donation too.

Yoga for kids

Each day Room 5 takes part in a yoga session for children. The yoga moves are incorporated through a story told by the instructor. Yoga helps maintain flexibility and can improve focus. It is great to see them all giving it a go and to see who can complete the moves and who needs a little more practise!
