Term 3 Week 6

We had another busy week. Our 4 medal winners headed off to Ohaeawai School on Wednesday to compete in the inter-school competition. They all did a fantastic job representing our school. Well done to Te Kawana who came third in the 6 year old boys. 

Davalamayne, Te Kawana, Trinity and Jazmine.

Our school focus for the week was teamwork. Ana and Trinity built this amazing structure together from the foam shapes in our maths centre:

Room 4 (our buddy class) designed, planned and made costumes for us to wear on Daffodil Day. On Thursday Room 4 was a hive of activity as we all worked together on our fabulous creations.

Bentley and her buddy planning the costume.
Making sure Charlie-Gurl's headband will fit.

Some great teamwork with our tuakana.

We all did our share of the work.
We enjoy working together!

We all went up on stage to show everybody our Daffodil Day costumes.

Week 5

We had our school cross country on Tuesday and Room 1 have heaps of fast runners! Congratulations to Trinity, Te Kawana, Jazmine and Davalamayne who are off to Ohaeawai School on Wednesday 27th August for the Interschool Cross Country.
On Friday we learned a new card game. It is just like fish but instead of matching pairs you need 2 cards that make 10. We were good at sharing and taking turns.

Term 3 Week 2

Have you ever wondered how they make Lego? Troy H put this question on our Wonder Wall. We discovered lots of interesting facts by watching this video: LEGO...The Building Blocks of Fun!

On Friday we joined Room 4 on stage for their Assembly. Last term we missed out on holding our own assembly because it kept raining on Friday afternoons! Thank you Room 4, you are the best buddy class. We were very proud of our choir singers - Twinkles, Charlie-Gurl and Maia who performed at the assembly. Maia even sang a solo. She sang beautifully and was extremely brave to sing in front of the whole school. The school choir will be performing at the Turner Centre in Kerikeri on Monday 11th August.
