Buddha Temple.

Last week Team 8 went with the other Junior classes to visit the Buddhist temple.
The people there taught us about the 3G's and 4G's.

It was a beautiful calm place to visit. Team 8 loved making lotus flowers, making wishes on petals and most of all eating brownie!
We are such lucky children at Sunnyhills School.

A huge thank you to Maddie's mum, Ashton's mum, Tom's mum and Lachie's dad, who came and helped us out on the day!  We couldn't have done it without you!

Check out the recording to see what the 3G's are!

Welcome to Team 8 Mason.
Mason has had a great first week in Team 8, and we love having his happy smile!

Make and Do!

Mrs Turner has created an amazing center in Team 8, where she leaves instructions and the bits that we need to make some craft or art.  It is called 'Make and Do.'
I caught Anastasia and Ella following the instructions and making the perfect hand crab!!!

Wow Girls! and Wow Mrs Turner too!

Crossing the Road.

Last week MaryAnne and Constable Merv came into Team 8 to teach us how to cross the road safely.
We have to Stop, look and listen...and don't forget to think said Tom!
We learnt about that we need to watch for sneaky driveways and always cross with an adult.



Sneaky Driveway...watch that car!

It was a great day and Team 8 did lots of great learning!

During Week One of Term Two Team 8 learnt about ANZAC day.
Some of the things that we learnt were;

  •  that some soldiers fought in a war. 
  • some of these soldiers died.
  • the soldiers were from New Zealand and Australia.
  • we remember them on the 25th of April.
  • some people wear a poppy.
  • some people go to a special parade to remember these soldiers.
As part of this week we made some poppies. We also got to make and eat ANZAC biscuits.  Yummy!
Here are the photos to show you the fun and mess we had.

These are the photos of us making them. Each member of Team 8 had to make their own in a little bowl.

 This photos show the dishes that Mrs Grant did with the help of Nayla and also the biscuits all ready to eat.

Now lets eat!

Team 8 were great chefs and learnt a lot about ANZAC!
