Learning to use Ti Rakau

Whaea Saffron showed us how to use the rakau sticks and the children had fun trying to toss and catch them with some success. Kamryn was very surprised to be able to succeed.

Dancing at the Team One Disco

The Team One end of term disco was just the place to try out some dancing moves.  The children had an ice block and there was rewards for the best dancing.  Here are some of Class 16 moves.

New Books for Holiday Reading

Class 16 was very lucky to get a Duffy Book to read over the holidays.

Kamryn wrote, "Thank you for giving us some Duffy Books.  We like reading the Duffy Books.  They have nice stories and we can read them in the holidays."

Santa and the Reindeer

Another Christmas story the children have enjoyed is "Santa and the Reindeer".  The children liked the way that Rudolf didn't give up and like a true champion he kept on practising until he was perfect.
"When Rudolf tried to fly he fell down.  He didn't give up and he pulled Santa's sledge.  He was right up the front."  By Teejay

"Rudolf is a reindeer and he can fly because he has got a magical nose."  By William

"Rudolf couldn't fly but he was a champion and he said 1,2,3 and he was flying."  By Jade F

"Rudolf couldn't fly because he wasn't practising enough.  He tried really hard and he didn't give up.  Then he was the leader.  By Kyzel

Slinky Malinki's Christmas Crackers

As Christmas is nearly here we have been reading Christmas stories.  The children enjoyed listening to Slinky Malinki's way of redecorating the tree with himself as a fairy on the top of the tree.  Here are two of their stories.

"Slinky Malinki is a sneaky black cat.  He destroyed the Christmas tree and mischievously hid the fairy under the rug." By Witari

"Slinky Malinki saw the Christmas tree and ruined all of the decorations.  He cheekily hid the fairy under the rug."  By Teejay

Phoenyx drew a picture of Slinky Malinki and the Christmas tree.

Football Fun

We were very fortunate to have Sport Auckland come and teach us how to play football this term.  We practised football skills by playing fun games such as Rob the Nest and Shark Attack and then we played a game against our classmates.  Thank you Coach Jeremy.
