Cities Break Through with Mrs Freddy

Cities and buildings

BK - Bring what I know about shapes of buildings from last week.  Find out more information by watching the presentation on Gaudi, Hundartwasser,  Zaha Hadid and ancient buildings . Discuss the different shapes we can see, what do they look like to us?

MM - Consider what features you would like to include in your building from the presentation.  Sort through the photos and order your preference.

AU - Draw your building on paper and create your building out of boxes according to your plan.

We learnt so much from BARK NZ.  They taught how to approach a dog.  First we need to ask our own adult if it is okay to pat the dog.  Next, we need to ask the dog owner if we can pat their dog.  After that, we approach the dog from the side and let him sniff our hand.  If he/she turns away then it is not okay with the dog to pat it.  Dogs love being patted under the chin and on the chest.

We also learnt how to stand tall like a tree if we were scared of a barking dog.  We need to cross our arms over our chest, legs together and do not look at the dog.

We also made a bet - who could run faster, the dogs or us?  Guess who won?

Thanks to all the parents for the donations, it was worthwhile having BARK NZ visit us.
