Hi Parents and Caregivers,

In Tautoru we have given the children their Mathletics passwords and usernames to use at home (they are on the back of their spelling rockets). Please explore the games available to your child with them as it is a wonderful learning tool!

MAN EATING PLANTS and Chocolate Ice Cream!

                                                                  BOB the STICKY PLANT.
Bob lives in the water. It is 3 metres long. It has sticky horns and they shoot out at people swimming. The sticky horns stick on to people.    By Isaac

My plant lives in the mountain. It is called mount. It is as big as a school chair. It has so many tongues because it catches so many flies. It smells like chocolate ice-cream. It has a very big eyes because they can see everything.     By Takehisa
                                                                    Oto's Clone Plant.

My man eating plant lives in the jungle. It is small as a school chair. My plant has metal claws and it has sharp  teeth. It is camouflaged so people walk straight past it and the plant grabs them!.

Feathers for Phoebe 
We read a book called Feathers for Phoebe by Rod Clement. It’s about a small grey bird that wants to get noticed by other birds. So she went to see Zelda to get fancy. Hamish told us to create a flamboyant bird of our own in our visual diaries. When we finished our bird in our visual diary we got onto a big piece of paper and sketched the outline. Our next step was to paint carefully with water colours. 

Here they are!
