Tongan Language Week




 During Tongan Language Week we were fortunate to be entertained by our school Tongan group.  Because of social distancing and the fact that we are not able to have assembly, Mrs Lagitupu videoed the group and then played it on our school live streamed assembly.


While we were watching the video,  we were treated to Chad standing up in class and joining the dance because he knew it, having learnt the dance for his Nana's birthday.  Thank you Chad we did enjoy your dancing.  It was great that you felt you could join in.

Duffy Certificate Award

 Pauliasi has been reading his reading books very well.  He has been remembering some of his reading words at his level and when he reads he makes it sound as if he is talking.  What a great effort you are making with your reading, writing and maths Pauliasi.  Enjoy your award.

Our Individual Blogs

 Some of the children are beginning to write their own individual blogs.  They have blogged about school events, sports teams, what they have been up to or what they have been writing about.  So don't forget to check out the individual blogs as well as our class blog.  You will find their names on the right hand side of the class blog.  These names are linked to their blog.



 Click on a name and it will bring you to the child's blog.

Thursday is Certificate Day

 Today is Thursday so it is certificate day even though we are not altogether having assembly.  Meria and Samson have both been putting effort into their work this week.  It feels good when you try really hard with your writing and reading and suddenly you find - "Hey I can do it!!"  Good work both of you.  Keep it up and keep surprising yourself!

Look what Room 16 has been up to!

 Room 16's movie this term shows what a busy start we had to the term when we were able to do so many things together.  We can still enjoy learning, dancing and singing but we do these things a bit differently.



We are in Mufti


 On Friday we were able to wear mufti to school but we couldn't get together for a group photo.  When I looked around the class there was not the usual sea of red and black but all different colours.

Thursday Certificates

 Even though we can't get together to have Team One Assembly we have been having our own assembly each day.  Since the children have been working so hard in class, it was only fitting that we continue the Thursday certificate routine.  It was very hard to choose but Peyton has been doing some outstanding thinking in Maths and Joelle has been learning her high frequency words so she can write words in her stories and also recognise them in our flashcard games.  Well done girls!
