Week nine - 11 December

In our last week of learning we are trying a different type of lolly lei.  This lei is a little more difficult but I am enjoying watching the children persist.  

Week 8 - 04 December

Nau mai haere mai.  This week is prize giving week and in room 17 we made lolly leis for our prize winners.  For most of the class they had seen leis before and have even watched them being made but have never made them, themselves.  It was a thoroughly awesome experience.  As prize winners from our class were called a member of our class went to present the winner with a lei.

week five - 13 November

Tennis Tournament
For the past five weeks we have been learning how to play Tennis with Coach Chris Brown.  He has taught us the overhead smash, back hand, forehand, to volley.  Today we were having a tournament with room 18.

In week three we started swimming.  We are learning to be confident in the water.  To also use a streamline position to kick through the water.

week three - 30 October

We are very lucky in our class to now hold a National Champion in Cheerleading and her name is Calais Ikitule.  On Friday the 27 October Calais and her brother Cullen both had the day off school.  They were travelling down to Wellington for the National Championships for Cheerleading.  All year they have both put a lot of effort and commitment into training!  Here are a few photos of Calais with her medals.  You never know what you can accomplish until you try.

Week two - 23 October 2017

This term we are really putting our best foot forward to speak Te Reo Maori.  Everyday we always start with a whole class karakia but this term everyone is going to get the chance to say the karakia by themselves.  Next we will sing a himene together.  We are also trying something new which is learning to say the pepeha for this area.  By the end of the term we will be able to recite it and hopefully have more confidence in speaking Maori.  I look forward to the United Pumas giving this a go!  Here are Angel and Robyn starting our day off.
