End of Term 3

Kia ora  and welcome to a new term.

We thought the children might like a quick look at some of the things we got up to in the last week of Term 3.
With the weather deciding to stay dry for a few days we were able to take our play based learning outside. Learning to make a giant bubble was a great way to 'keep trying'. Well done brilliant bubble makers!

 It was also Dan's last week of his teaching placement with us. We have learnt so much about Samoan culture from him sharing with us and teaching us the Sasa dance. Come along to Room 10 and check out the Samoan art we did with him.

Another favourite that he taught us was Te Tinana, the Maori version of Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.
 We will all miss him not being in Room 10  this term but hope he comes back to see us for the Masked Parade later this month.
This term we will be continuing to develop our P.E. skills in No Child Left Inside.
.......and a few other photos that made me smile.
Finally a big thank you to everyone who sent in healthy food for our end of term shared kai and I am sure we will enjoy another one together before the end of the school year.
Don't forget to pop in take a look at the fish collages on display in the class foyer.
