We had a great time making pinwheels with Mrs. MacKinlay. First we coloured the pin wheel on both sides. Mrs.Mackinlay said to colour it in using lots of different coloured. She helped us cut it out and helped us fold the ends to the centre. That was a bit tricky. Mrs. MacKinlay pinned them to some chopsticks and we had a go at trying to make it fly.

Brush your teeth

We went for a trip to the dental clinic. It was really exciting because we all took turns to sit these special chairs. The dental nurse talked to us about what we need to do to take care of our teeth. We have made a little movie to share our learning.

Te Taiao O Tamamaki- The environment of Tamaki

This morning we had a wonderful opportunity to visit Te Oro Music and Arts centre in Glen Innes.
Children from schools within the cluster shared their learning through live performances and expositions. We saw some amazing displays and performances.

We are so excited to go to Te Oro

We are going by bus. Yeah!

The senior Kapa Haka group performed for us.

The performance was amazing. They sang beautifully.
We were so proud of them.

What we can do with our rubbish. Sommerville Special School showed us: Things we could make with containers, plastic and paper.  We saw yogurt containers shaped and designed to make caterpillars.
Plastic chip bags and cookie bags were cut and made into beautiful butterflies.
A wonderful display. Thank-you Sommerville Special School.

Kiwi Sport

Today in our Kiwi Sport lesson Coach Allen taught us a new skill called catching. We had to choose an object and throw it into the air and catch it using both hands, then with one hand only. We played lots of different games. Coach Allen says that we are the best class. We love Kiwi Sport!
