Terell + Tūpeke!

Today was the first day of term 3, and we have 2 new boys in our class!

First we would like to introduce Terell. He can already count up to 6 and loves meeting new people. We're looking forward to some awesome learning this year with him!

The second new boy in our class is Tūpeke!
In Māori Tūpeke means 'Jump' or 'Leap' which we though was good for our rabbit. 
He has settled right into Room 2. 
Today we were learning how to make sure he settles well into our class, and not to scare him. 

We found out that he likes broccoli leaves and freshly picked grass!

Tūpeke is a good explorer!

Tūpeke likes getting nice pats


Elijah likes being a nice friend to Tūpeke.

Calais took a photo of Tūpeke being brave and adventuring out.
We picked some yummy grass for him.

Peter Rabbit

We have been learning about rabbits.
We watched a youtube video of Peter Rabbit eating Mr McGregors carrots after his mum told him not to, then we wrote our own stories about it... here they are!
