Yay!!!  Term three has begun!  We are all very happy and excited to be back at school with our friends.  We are looking forward to learning a lot of new things this term.
Like any new term, we began with an immersion assembly.  This term’s assembly was ‘out of this world’!  The theme for term 3 is Guardians of the Galaxy’, and Team 1 is going to be finding out all about the sun and the moon, and what they do for the earth.  It’s going to be exciting – and lots of fun!

Here is the movie that Team 1 teachers made to introduce the new inquiry.  Enjoy!

This week our class presented a short movie for PENN (our school news).  We've been doing a lot of learning about POWERFUL WORDS.  We've learnt different ways of saying 'happy' or 'sad'.  So, we decided our movie should be about emotions.  Miss Hockly wrote the song and we had a lot of fun acting.  We hope you enjoy our movie.

Another Farewell

This afternoon was another day of ‘Goodbye’s. 

For the last five weeks Rm 17 has been lucky to have Mrs Amy Davis in our class.  Mrs Davis was a student teacher, and she was fantastic!  We really appreciated the learning she shared with us all.  We especially enjoyed making lanterns to remind us about Matariki.

We hope Mrs Davis comes back to visit us sometime.  
Thanks for all you did, Mrs Davis!

Today we said 'Goodbye' to a valued class member. Ladreah (and her family) are moving back to Whangarei.  We are sad to see her go, but we know that the school she is going to will be thrilled to have her.   
Ladreah - we are going to miss your fabulous smile!  Your amazing ideas.  And the light you brought into our classroom each day.

Good luck at your new school.

Now That's Thinking!

In Term Two we are focussing on Technology.  As Matariki (The Maori New Year) is almost here we are going to be making kites and other things that fly, to celebrate the coming harvest.  We will also be thinking about food for celebrating and how best to present it, so we may be weaving baskets as well.

To introduce our topic to the school, the teachers in Team One made a movie called 'The Four Kites of Matariki'.  I'm sure you'll enjoy the movie as much as we did.
