KB always enjoy time with their buddies. This week 5B were asked to teach KB something 'new' on the Kinder iPads using only the apps available. They chose from Photo Booth, Puppet Pals 2, Book Creator, Pages, Pic Collage, Memory Skills and practised taking photos. They were all highly motivated during the session and we will aim to use these skills in future tasks. Thanks Year 5 buddies!

In Geography this week, Kindergarten learnt about recycling. We looked at what types of things can be recycled and how some of them can be remade into new objects. We then got to sort out Mrs Blake's pile of rubbish. We had to make some hard decisions and we learnt to look for the recycling symbol to see if some items could be recycled.
On Friday we had Jane (Dylan's Gran) come as our Mystery Reader. She read a favourite book of Dylans called Ferdinand by Munro Leaf. It is a well known story about a bull that would rather smell flowers than fight in bullfights. Thank you Jane for visiting KB and spending some time with us.
