We sorted all different kinds pictures today in different categories. We worked in teams and didn't always agree where the image should go, but we listened to each other's reasons and came to a decision. Lots and lots of oral language!!
We are learning Yoga in Renwick 1- Yoga for kids enhances flexibility, promotes strength and stamina, stability, and balance, reduce stress and help with relaxation while developing creativity and imagination and boosts confidence and self esteem.
Yoga is non-competitive and there is no judgement about how a child does a pose or plays a game.
We practised Yoga for 15 minutes on Wednesday and 15 mins on Friday, check out our poses!
As a treat in Discovery Time today we had our faces painted!

Cheeky Coit Golf!
Using our sensational throwing skills we learnt from Bodie last week we were able to play a game of Coit Golf. We had to keep our feet glued to the floor when we were holding the coit, then threw it onto the yellow posts. It was a bit tricky as some of the yellow posts were hiding on and under the climbing frame!
"I threw it really far" says Angel
"It took me 5 throws to get it on the post" said Toby
"There was one really high up but I climbed up the ladder to get it!" said Oscar
We had such a successful week with our learning. Tory said we were very well behaved all day so we got special privilege time at the end of the day. We got to decide what we wanted to do for the twenty minutes and we ALL agreed that we wanted to see our big buddies.....so we got to play on the computers with our buddies helping us.
Thank you big buddies! xoxox
Today Bodie taught us how to balance coits on our heads and how to throw them just like the athletes at the Olympics! We had to throw them up in the air and see if we could catch them on our arms and feet! "It was so much fun!" said Solly
"I caught it on my foot on my first go!" shrieked Awhi!
