Room 16s Lunch Box Heroes

Room 16 was lucky that three children had their names drawn out of the lunch box heroes draw.  Taylor got some biscuits, Joelle some Up and Go and Tone go a jar of honey.  I hope you enjoyed sharing your choices from the cupboard with your family.

Friday Fun Activities

Having fun with friends is something we miss at the moment while we are in lockdown but we can still enjoy looking at pictures of us doing things together.

Literacy Learning Activities

When the children have finished their reading and writing activities they are able to chose a literacy activity.  Joelle and Bavin chose to recognise and match up some high frequency words while Eli and Samson chose to say the letter sound and find a matching letter.

iPad Work

The children have been busy learning how to  duplicate on their iPads.  They remembered how to make a shape then they learnt how to go into the "i" tool and look for the letter "d" which is the initial letter of the word "duplicate" next to the little drawing of the two rectangles to make a second shape exactly the same.  It was great fun making lots of shapes.  
Rataimore was able to listen carefully and do the task
Elevina is happy with her duplicated shapes.

In our last te Reo lesson we were learning how to answer the question -


Whaea Maryanne said we were all - HARIKOA which means happy.

Elena with her lovely smile shows us she is harikoa.


Here are some other responses we learned that you might be able to practise with your whanau.

Manahau (excited), Pouri (sad), Ngenge (tired) or ohorere (surprised).
