Animal Poems

Orange and black stripy fur

With sharp claws at the end of my toes

Sharp teeth to eat meat

I am a tiger.


Ollie (Flamingo)


I have black stripes on my fluffy body.

My babies suck my tummy to get milk

I live in the jungle

I look cuddly but I am not

I am a tiger.


Bella (Flamingo)

I have a brown rectangle shell on my back.

I am slow and green.

I have stripey brown flippers.

I am a turtle.

Aneesa (Robin)

I waddle around on the ice

I have flappy fins.

I have a white belly.

I am a penguin.

Giraffe Recount

This week in Literacy we watched a video about giraffes and we wrote a recount about the strange event!

First the giraffes clicked clacked down the corridor. The corridor was shiny. Next the giraffe looked in to the camera and stuck his tongue out. Then they lined up next to the diving board. One of the giraffes jumped in to the swimming pool. After diving the giraffes needed a drink. Finally they heard a big bang! They ran back up the ramp. ~

– Roxanne (Flamingo class)

First the giraffes are walking. Then they came in a line gracefully. Then one giraffe stopped and licked his lips. He looks at the camera and makes a funny face. Next one giraffe galloped to the swimming pool and done a flip and a huge splash and landed. After the giraffe gets out of the pool and they line up one by one and have a drink. Last the giraffe heard a big loud bang and ran away.

Bee Pollination

Today we learnt about how bees help plants pollinate. The children visited a plant, pretending to be a bee. They picked up a cheesy crisp then flew to the next flower. We rubbed our fingers on the flower and saw how the “pollen” transferred. This really helped the children develop their understanding and was great fun!
