Mrs Ireland who helps us in Room 16 on a Tuesday recently went to Australia.  On her return she gave all the children a little koala bear.  The children wrote cards to thank Mrs Ireland and Talanoa did a great job decorating and writing in his card.

Mufti Day

Friday was Mufti Day which meant for a gold coin donation the children didn't have to wear school uniform.  Room 16 took full advantage of this and came to school in their colourful clothes.  There was also a sausage sizzle at lunch time.

Getting ready for Matariki

Kristina checking which paper strips are correct
On Friday afternoon instead of Jump Jam we did some craft activities with a Matariki theme.  Bentley and Kristina were very patient in weaving coloured paper through slits in their colourful stars.  What a great way to combine two Matariki themes of learning to weave with a Matariki star.

Bentley concentrating on getting it coloured paper woven through the correct slits.

Abbey's Duffy Certificate

Abbey was the winner of the Duffy Certificate this week as she has been using her big patience muscles and waiting without fuss to talk to the teacher.  She chose a book about puppies and shared it with us.  We learned about different breeds of puppies.

A very happy Abbey with her Duffy Certificate and book.
