Crazy about Bees

We have been 'busy as bees' in Room 1 and 2 learning about Bees and creating DLO's. We have created videos about how bees make honey using either WeVideo or Google Slides along with Screencastify. We have also made QR codes of our videos and put them onto our wall to share with others.

On Tuesday we all had a great morning for Hero Day. The ambulance, police and fire service came along to share their role in the community with us and talk to us why they are heroes. There were lots of fun activities. We got to crawl through a tunnel to practise get down, get low, get out if our house is on fire. The police recorded how fast we could run using their speed camera. Mosese was the fastest! We also got to have turns on the different stretches in an ambulance.
Here are some photos of our day.

 Then they challenge the school to a tug of war using a fire hose. It was the emergency services against the senior school. The emergency services won 2 out of the 3.

Honey Bees

For reading we have been learning how to skim and scan for information. Then find key words and write the facts into our words. This week we read a book about Honey Bees. We used google drawing to explain the different parts of the book about honey bees. Each group read a different chapter from the book and have created their own drawing to explain. We have put them all together in a slide.
