Marae Visit

Tuesday, September 3, 2019 2 comments
After having our last visit date cancelled, we are finally going! On Friday 6 September - this Friday, Room 10 will be joining Rooms 9 and 11 for our visit to Arei te uru Marae in Shetland. It should be a lot of fun. Children will need to bring their lunch boxes and drink bottles as usual, a warm jacket, and WARM SOCKS! We must take our shoes off before entering the wharenui and it can be quite cold.

Have a look at our Mihi art which represents our whakapapa - come in and check it out.

What a day the Cross Country was!

Well we sure were lucky with the weather - a lovely, calm, sunny day which the whole school enjoyed. Only the Top 10 placings were recorded, a new system from other years.

In Room 10, Reagan gained 2nd place in the Year 3 girls race. James Phipps-Green came in 3rd place in the Year 4 boys, closely followed by Carlin Summerfield in 8th place and Leo Strong in 9th.  Amelia Smith raced in for 4th place in the Year 4 girls.

A big well done for everyone!

Cross Country

Time for our annual Cross Country! Tuesday 30 July is hopefully going to be the day, however if it's raining, it will be held on Wednesday 31.

Remember to dress your child in layers - have shorts on under pants, shoes that are easy to run in, and a jacket to put on before and after the race. Hopefully it'll be more of the 'normal' fantastic weather we've been having.

Oral Language Competition

Saturday, May 18, 2019 No comments
Every year in Term 2, we have our Oral Language Competition. This year, children have chosen a poem to memorise and have then written an introduction to their poem. They will hopefully have brought home their 'cards' so that they can practise, using good volume, expression and making eye contact with their audience.

Room 10 will have our class competition on Thursday 30 May, with Miss Twiss and myself as judges. We will choose two Year 3 children and two Year 4 children to represent our class at the Middle Team semi-finals which will be on Wednesday 12 June.

ANZAC activities - Art and Letters from the War

Since the school holidays, Room 10 has been learning about ANZAC day. We have made some lovely art showing the poppies of Flanders Field.

We read a book called Harry and the ANZAC Poppy which was a series of letters from WWI, written from a soldier to his daughter. Harry was the great grandson of the soldier. Using these letters as our source, the children in Room 10 wrote letters 'home' from war, pretending that they were either soldiers or nurses. Come in to read what they have written.
