Term 3 Week 5

The New Zealand Marist Colts came to visit us. They talked to us about our School Values. After that they spent an hour playing sports with us. They donated us lots of new sports equipment. 

This week we had our second after school session of Reading Together. Our focus was to support our parents with how to select appropriate reading books for their children to read. 

We painted our self portraits and then made ourselves have crazy hair by blowing dye through a straw. These are displayed in the library. 

We have been learning how to skip count in twos by using our special penguins. We have also been making numbers out of beans. 

At the start of the week we had our poetry presentation. Miss Patrick was very proud of the students who represented our class.

Term 3 Week 4

Last week Miss Patrick took our Senior Leaders to Merle Leask Kindergarten. They read books and played with the students who are going to be joining our classroom before the end of the year. 

We have been outside practicing writing our numbers with chalk. We love learning outside. 

We went to visit all the fantastic helpers to thank them for coming to school and making cheese rolls. We got to taste the mixture and find out how they make them. 

We have been learning about being part of a team and sharing as part of our olympics learning. We loved playing outside in the water sharing the equipment with each other.

Term 3 Week 3

We had a great time last Friday playing in the snow. These are some pictures at Miss Patricks house.
 We made snow artwork and wrote stories. 

On Monday we watched the NZ 7's Women's Rugby Team who were competing in the Olympics. We were very proud of them for getting a silver medal. 

Miss Patrick's cousin kindly gave us these new lanyards. We think they are awesome and they will help us to learn our words all around the school. 

We are loving Jump Jam. It is helping us learn our right and lefts and counting the beat.

Term 3 Week 2

Welcome back to Term 3. Miss Patrick is back from holiday and Room 6 have been working really hard. 

On a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings our whole school participates in Jump Jam, as part of our Winter fitness. We love starting the day of dancing and singing. 

We are loving reading the new books that Miss Patrick got us to our puppets. We have also been trying really hard to learn all the words in our containers. 

In maths we have been learning about numbers before and after. We love having Ally our new teacher aide to help us out everyday. 

On Thursday we illustrated our invites to our whanau to invite them to a programme called Reading Together. This programme is 4 after school sessions to help support our parents to read with us at home. 

On Thursday our letter was 'M'. Miss Patrick took us to the staffroom and we had milo as a special treat for working hard this week.
