To start the day we set up our class by putting our bags away, putting the chairs down, rolling the blinds up to let in the golden sun. While we wait for the school day to start at 8:55am we can go outside and play, we can use the iPads and computers in our class, hold Cheeko (he is our class pet rat) and we can do some quiet reading, drawing or writing. But for the last few weeks we have been watching the Americas Cup as racing starts at 8:10am. We hope Team NZ win soon.
When the bell goes we come in, sit on the mat and call the roll. After that we discuss the timetable for the day and we start with fitness. Reading is the first thing that follows fitness and we do that until about 10:30am. Writing is next and we have been learning to write a narrative. This is followed by morning tea where we can have a bite to eat and have a play!
After morning tea we continue a little bit with writing and then get into maths. To finish of the middle block we go to the library to chose books for the week. And then its one of our favourite parts of the day... LUNCH TIME!
After lunch we do SSR for about 10mins (Sustained Silent Reading). Our day is finished with sharing our homework from the previous week and getting the new weeks homework and spelling ready. Then the bell goes at 3pm.
