School Fair

For the Stonefields School Fair, we made lots of sweets and (paperweight) rocks to sell. We even made our own stall banner and sold our products at the fair by ourselves!  

Here's what some of our learners had to say about what they did for our school fair:

We made sweets for the school fair.  We made 3 sweets: they were hokey pokey, fudge and rocky road. The school fair was on Saturday 17 October. I enjoyed putting the sweets into the bags. I helped put in the hokey pokey and the fudge and Daniel helped with the rocky road. - by Joseph

I made fudge. I  put them in the bag to sell them at the school fair. I felt happy because we sold all of it at the school fair. - by Harley

I made rocky road. I cut marshmallows for the school fair. I felt happy because I was helping the teachers and my friends to make sweets to sell for the fair. - by Kade

I made rocks for the fair and selling sweets and buy things for mum - by Ruby

I was selling sweets at the school fair. I was selling rocky road at the school fair on Saturday at Stonefields. - by Rapture

Science at Hub 4

Check out our presentation at school assembly. We decided to share all the amazing learning we have been doing in Science this term. 

This term, we are all scientists at Hub 4. We are learning about solids, liquids, and gas. We are also learning about hot and cold. - Ruby

We learnt how to sign hot and cold. We also learnt the Maori words for hot (wera) and cold (makariri). - Cynthia and Blake

We have been doing lots of experiments, like making Rainbow Wizards Brew. Look at it bubble and spill out of the jar. - Rapture

We felt things that are hot and cold. We found out what would happen to an ice cube if we put it under the sun (it melted!). We also melted crayons using a hair dryer to make our hot and cold art. - Joseph.

We also made our own ice cream. It tastes just like the one we buy at the shops. - Kade

Hub 4 at the Zoo

"On Friday (5th of June), we went to the zoo because we are learning about animals. We saw lots of different animals. Henry liked looking at the zebras. Toby liked looking at the crocodile. Blake liked looking at the monkeys hanging on the trees." - Rapture

"I saw a rhino. He has a horn and he’s dangerous. Daniel and Harley saw a giraffe. It has a long neck." - Kade

"We saw lions sitting on the grass. It roared really loud. We also saw flamingos. They were standing on one leg. The flamingo is my favourite animal at the zoo." - Joseph

 "At the zoo we learnt to do the porcupine dance and we were also able to touch a real porcupine quill. We also touched real animal fur and bones. We had a fun day at the zoo!" - Ruby

Community Workers

Check out us learning about all the people in our community who help us.  We had so much fun!
We visited the fire station and got to have a turn squirting water with the fire hose. The fire officer showed us what they wear when they are fighting fires.
Constable Gordon came to visit and we all got to go for a drive in the police car with the lights and sirens on!
Then we had a visit from St Johns and we got to play with 'Ambo' the Ambulance and practise our first aid.

Gingerbread Man

For Big Book, we read the story of The Gingerbread Man.

Because we are want to make connections with our learning, we decided to make our own gingerbread man cookies for our Friday cooking activity.

We're sure glad none of our gingerbread men ran off when we took them out of the oven!

Jack and the beanstalk

We are planting beans to grow.  
We will measure our stalk and see if it grows as big as Jacks beanstalk.  
Do you think they might be magic beans???
Rapture hopes that we won't get a giant in our hub!

Fairy tales

We dressed up like Cinderella and the fairy godmother and made wishes...
What would you wish for?
