RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE INFOMATION

THE CARTER FAMILY

Late last term, Jacob shared the story of his sister Ryleigh with the class.  Ryleigh is in Starship Hospital.  Some of Jacob's friends decided to make her some letters to decorate her room with. 
 
Over the holidays Jacob went up to Auckland to visit Ryleigh and he stayed with his family at Ronald McDonald House.  The class were trying to think of some way that we could help the Carter family.  After some 'Wondering' yesterday the children think it would be a nice idea to make some crafts and run a Market Day at school and donate the money to Ronald McDonald House.

Today we looked at the types of crafts we thought other children might like to buy from us.  We are going to have to do a lot of learning about budgeting and money to make our Market successful. 

Watch this space for more details.

MAKE IT MONDAY - CAMPSITE MAKING!

Making a campsite and chair for our Teddies created a lot of fun today.  A lot of the campsites came with sleeping bags, even marshmallows to roast on the campfire.

PATCH AND THE SEASNAKE

One beautiful sunny morning Patch was sailing on his new ship.  Suddenly, halfway to Neverland, a humongous seasnake rose out of the wavy, wet, splashy water and said,
"You're not going past unless you find me a golden coin."
"OK" said Pirate Patch and off they went searching.  They started digging.
"Wait!  I found something!  A gold coin!"
They took it to the seasnake.
"OK.  You can go past."
