Mufti day - costumes and cultures!

Last Friday it was mufti day at Mission Heights with a "costumes and cultures" theme. Don't we all look fantastic in LZ6!! We got to have a lunch combo of hot chips and a lolly bag which was very yummy!

Congratulations to Tiffinni!

Well done to Tiffinni for being awarded the Excellence award for LZ6 at last weeks assembly. She got it for her fantastic effort in reading - pushing her words together to make them smooth and reading with expression. Great job Tiffinni!

Fruit shoot addition game!

Hi guys! Here is another great game that you can play during the holidays (or during term!) - you squash the fruit with the number that matches the equation...the faster you go, the more points you get. It makes a great splat sound as well!! Give it a try by clicking on the image above.

Board game day!

We have been learning about toys and games - both old and new - and on the last week of term we could bring our favourite board games to school to share with our class and LZ5! It was lots of fun learning because we had to talk about and demonstrate how to play our game and then we all took turns playing all the different games in both classes!

Kitten visit!

We were very lucky today to have 2 kitten visitors in LZ6!! Miss Lee brought her two kittens called Jelly and Mao to show us. Jelly was a burmese and he was a bluey grey brown colour. He was very friendly and loved to get pats. Mao was a girl and she had a fluffy white tail. She had one blue eye and one green eye! She was a little bit shy and liked to find hiding places like under Miss Baker's chair! Thanks Miss Lee for sharing your cute kittens with us!

Happy birthday Jed!

Happy birthday for Sunday Jed! Thanks for sharing your celebration with us...especially those incredibly delicious cookies that mum made!! Hope you have a great day!

Maui slows the sun artwork!

Here is a sneak preview of our latest artwork - the sun from the Maui legend "Maui slows the sun". We worked hard to make our art very detailed and because we didn't have tiny enough brushes we used cotton buds to colour in our work with dye. It took a LONG time!! When it was all coloured we then went over some bits with bleach which took the colour out and made the work "pop!" Close up pictures coming this space!

Happy birthday Diyana!

Happy birthday Diyana!! Thank you for sharing your celebration with us today - the chocolate cake that mum made was delicious! I hope it was a great day for you!
And here is a sneak peek at Diyana's new baby brother Ali - he joined us for the birthday celebrations this afternoon as well. Isn't he cute?
