Solar system

Room 1 is studying the Solar system at the moment. We've been learning about all of the planets, Dwarf
planets, Comets, Asteroids and the Sun.  Its been exciting to learn about, and we have learnt heaps that we didn't know about already. we've shared our own facts that we already knew. We also learnt about the Big Bang from different theories, which is how the Solar system began.
We did some art on the Milky way. We used pastel and then we smudged it round, to give a spinning tense.
Our wonderful art work have been put up on the wall of Room1.

The senior school is focusing on multiplication and division.

We are focusing on skip counting and knowing our multiplication and division skills from 1-10.

Room 1 is currently working on adjectives. Sam described an adjective as being a word that describes a noun. 

These are some neat adjective games:

In Room 1 we have been learning about the Humpback whale.
So here is a bit of info on the topic.

The Humpback whale is the 3rd largest whale on the planet, with long complex songs.

The Humpback is as long as 2 buses and a car, It is as tall as a 3 story-building and weighs 28 tonnes.
It has two blow holes, a fluke that measures 25 meters long which help it to move, and its flippers help it glide through the water.

This large mammal eats only the smallest animals for its size.
The humpback eats plankton, krill, small fish for dinner and jellyfish for desert.

Did you know
This whale is endangered from pollution and whaling so recycle.  

Book Fair

On Wednesday 21st of March, Turuturu School started a book fair that will go until Wednesday 28th March.
It is being held in the Turuturu School library.  There is lots of cool books in there.  It has been a great success so far.  Hopefully it will continue till Wednesday! It's super busy at the moment.  There is lots of different types of books like chapter books, picture books, poster books and lots more!  
All of them are very cool, and really interesting.
