Happy New Year and Welcome back!

Welcome to room 4 2019 and welcome to all new children to the senior team. This is going to be a busy term with Swimming Sports and Noho Marae. I am excited to help you with your learning and watch your progress through the year. We will work hard together and also have fun while learning.

So that you can get the most out of this year, remember to always have a growth mindset, be brave and ask questions, persevere, be kind/ helpful to each other and give 100% effort to everything you do.

I am looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday and hearing about your holiday adventures.

Please remember your sunhat and drink bottle.

On the first of August, New Zealand Playhouse came to our school!

They performed a show called " Little red riding robin hood ". It was a variation of little red riding hood. The performers were really good actors and did a great show! It was really funny and everyone liked it.

Balloon Rockets!

For TASS ( Technology Art Science Social Studies ) Mr Arnold set a challenge for us,... we were making balloon rockets! First, we got a straw, some paper, some scissors, sellotape and most importantly a balloon! first, we stuck little pieces of triangle shaped paper on the bottom of the straw, next, we used sellotape to stick the end of the balloon with the hole in it at the opposite end from the paper, and made it tight!! Finally, we blew up the balloon we held the end of the straw ( to keep the air in ) held the end, and let it fly!!

PrEP Market Day

This term, we have spent a lot of time getting to know each other. We were put into groups and had to apply for job roles. We were either accountants, designers, marketers or managers. Next we thought about a business ideas and then we had to narrow down our ideas and settle on one. We spent the rest of the term planning, making, and advertising our products and services. Here are some photos of us on Market Day.

Mrs Lloyd's Last Day

On the last day of term, Mrs Lloyd got to ride in a helicopter because she was retiring. Her family organised this surprise for her (she had no idea). Here is a video of us watching as the helicopter lifts off the ground! We hope that you enjoy your retirement Mrs Lloyd!!
