Term 4 Week 5

We were very lucky to see some Mounted Games this week on our school field. If you want to check out what they were doing have a look at this video:

And to prove they really did come to our school - here are some photos:

We practised being safe in the water again. Whaea Tracey taught us "If you can float, you can survive."

Term 4 Week 4

We had Chromebooks in our classroom this week so we spent lots of time learning how to file, create and share our work. It was fun doing our writing with a keyboard instead of a pencil.

Marty, Tracey and Avril from Swimsafe New Zealand are visiting our school for the next two weeks. On Tuesday we wore life jackets and learned how  to huddle and make a chain to help us survive in the water. On Thursday we were shown some more survival techniques and we got to practise them wearing our new swimming caps.

Term 4 Week 3

Wow! What happened to Week 3? It went so fast! On Tuesday we had lots of stories to share about the long weekend. On Thursday we spent the day with Miss Nicola learning about plants and creating more artistic masterpieces. Our garden has grown rapidly and we will have to start eating our garden kai soon to make some room in our planter box!

The seeds we planted have started to sprout too!
We had more fun with Room 4. They have been helping us with our Te Reo (the sound quality is not great but here is a video):

Finally, the sun was shining on Friday so we made the most of it and had a game of scatterball with our Room 4 buddies.
