On Monday 17th November we had a visit from the St John's lady to teach us about the emergency services and what the St Johns do.
We learn about the jobs carried out by the Fire Department, the Police and the St John.
She showed us some pictures and we had to say how these services helped us.
We were also shown some pictures and we had to guess which of the three services we would call in each of the pictures.
This was the oxygen machine and we were shown how it was used as a nebuliser.
Each of us was able to feel the steam produced and it was cold and a bit funny to touch.
We had to get into pairs and practice dialling 111 and asking for an operator and giving them the information that they needed. One person took the part of the operator and the other person was ringing the emergency service.
Everyone needed to know their address and telephone number for this.
At the end the lady showed us what was in an ambulance and the different sirens they had.
We were surprised that there were so many different sirens.
During Labour weekend, Oaklands School had its 50th Jubilee.
We had an Open Day on Friday and there was a photo taken of the whole school and the visitors. The photographer had to stand on the Library roof to take it. Our newly painted mural was on display at the end of the Hall facing Rooms 1-3.
Some of the art work produced during Term 3 for the Topic was on display at the end of Room 23.
On Friday we were dressed in mufti for bringing a contribution to the Gala. Miss lee took origami and there were lots of other activities with a Halloween theme.
This is a collection of photos of our class and what they made.
During music interchange this term, in the second rotation, Mrs Small had us make small drums and decorate them. We performed outside the music room because the hall was being used.

During Term 3 and 4, Room 3 students will be learning the recorder.
We had our first session in Friday the 1st August and the children were very attentive and learnt 3 notes.
We have to remember to blow gently otherwise it will hurt our ears. We had to also make sure that our fingers covered the holes on the instrument properly or a strange sound comes out.
