Ice Cream - Kowhai


A couple of weeks ago our kowhai reading group was reading a text all about ice cream.  We then decided that we should make some of our own!
Thanks to Mrs Dixon ( Millie's mum ) who found a great recipe online and helped us to make it - we were all sorted.  The groups made three different flavours - choc chip, vanilla and strawberry and then strawberry!
We all got to have a taste test on Friday and there is even leftovers for our last week too!
" Better than real ice-cream" was a comment overheard!

Duffy Books

Great excitement at Silverdale on Friday when we all received two books from Duffy Books in Homes.  We had a special Duffy role model assembly where Sophie Corbidge spoke to us about her achievements.  She was fabulous to listen to and a great role model for us all.
THANKS FOR OUR BOOKS !

Wednesday BOOK WEEK !

What a day was had today !

This week is BOOK WEEK at Silverdale Normal.  Yesterday we were lucky enough to have Matt Elliott NZ author visiting us and talking with the Senior classes.

Today we had BOOK character day, BNZ 'closed for good' team teaching us how to be wise with our money and Des Hunt - NZ children's book author visiting.

We had some fabulous costumes in Rm 16 and even had the wolf and grandma visiting Red Riding Hood this afternoon......a little scary!

Thanks to the BNZ team for coming in first thing this morning to help us think about our money and encourage us to save.

Des Hunt was fabulous to listen to this morning.  His love of science shone through and we all were excited to listen to his thoughts on how to write a good book.  He shared that fact that writers are often rejected by publishers and this happens to even famous authors !  But with perseverance you can get there!!

Animal Enclosures

As part of our Inquiry this term, we are creating an enclosure for any animal.  We had to think about their emotional, social and physical needs when we planned our enclosures.

Today we started our creations !
