Week 8 Term 2

Cross Country training has been lots of fun for all! Choi tells us we are the fastest group she has had in years. Maybe something to do with the fact she wants to hold hands with us makes us run faster!
The actual event is this Friday 30th. It would be great to see as many parents as possible there :)

On Friday we had so much fun with our Matariki celebrations. We rotated around the classrooms engaging in a variety of different activities. We ended the morning's fun with a shared kai.

Have a happy and safe week!

Garden Makeover

Wow, what a great few days we have had at school. We have had two very special guests come to help us celebrate and complete our new Sensory Garden. Shark Man and Bug Man came to talk to us about the importance of nature around us both in the ocean and land.

And then it was all hands on deck on Saturday...

Week 2 Term 2

During reading time we have a range of activities we work through throughout the week. They include the Daily 5 (writing, reading to self, reading to a buddy, listening to stories and word work), which encourages us to become independent workers.

This week we were lucky enough to fit a hockey skills session in with Justine before the rain set in! We covered how to hold the stick, to dribble the ball and dodge. Justine was excellent and kept us on our toes.

On Friday we had Wacky Hair Day to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House. We have a number of whanau in our school community who have used this fabulous facility when supporting loved ones. Our wonderful student council decided this was a great cause to raise money for. In total we raised $600.

Have a happy and safe week!
