Safe Walking

We have started term 4 by learning about safe walking. Today Constable Harwood came to our school and did a safe walking exercise with us. We talked about the pictures below..

Crossing a Car park...

We learned that it we had to cross a car park, we should look for drivers in vehicles, exhaust fumes, vehicles moving, vehicles reversing; we should listen for slamming doors, reversing lights and beepers, cars starting up and cars driving AND, if there is a footpath, we should use it because it will be the safest place! 

When walking on the footpath...

We know that we should always walk on the house or shop side of the footpath, well away from the road. We need to look for and listen to any cars that may be about to move AND, we need to look down SNEAKY driveways!

What to do if there is a hazard....

Sometimes there may be a hazard on the footpath. We learned that a hazard will be clearly marked by cones or a bright coloured fence. If you come across a hazard, then walk carefully through the special marked area and don't get too close to the hazard!

Super Heroes think about antonyms and synonyms...

Today the Super Heroes reading group played a reading game where they had to match antonyms and synonyms up. There was a lot of discussion between the children...

Here are some of the ones they matched up...

Measuring in metres with the Hexagons

This week Mr. King took the Hexagons maths group and they looked at measuring things using centimetres, millimetres and metres. Today they used big 30 and 50 metre measuring tapes to measure the length of the rugby field, the length of the swimming pool and the depth of the swimming pool. We all had so much fun learning how to measure long lengths in metres!

They discovered that the length of the rugby field was about 55 metres.

The length of the swimming pool was about 18 metres and the depth of the pool was just over 1 metre.

Kacey, Eric and Daniel share their alien stories.
