Making the Olympic Rings

The weather was finally fine enough to hold our Olympics fun day.  Mr Burt had an idea about making the Olympic rings with coloured plates while a drone filmed it all from above.  The children had to sit around the pre marked out rings holding different coloured plates.  Then on the count of three they held the plates over their head.  It all went amazingly well with some great shots from above.  The children were amused when a local magpie decided to investigate the drone but it all ended well.  If you would like to see the drone footage go to the blog post "A Birdseye View of the Olympic Rings" dated 4 November on our blog.

A Birthday Party At School

Temalisi turned 6 today and wanted to share her big day with all her classmates.  She was the perfect hostess delivering a piece of her beautiful "Elsa" cake and a goodie bag to everyone.  The children all enjoyed your party Temalisi and loved playing with the balloons afterwards.  Thank you very much Temalisi

Wheels at School

On the last day of term we had a "Wheels Day" when the children were able to bring their "wheels" to school.  Bikes, scooters and skate boards were brought to school and the children had great fun whizzing around the school on their wheels.

Disco Dancing

It was too wet to hold our Olympic Fun Day so a lunchtime disco was held.  Room 16 all went along to the hall and showed off their best dance moves.

An Awesome Artist at Work

We went to look at the pictures of our Olympic medalists that Mr Jacobsen has been creating in the hall.  Vaha was most impressed with how Mr Jacobsen drew the images and commented that "Mr J 's an awesome artist."  We all thought he was too and we appreciated the finished images more after we had watched the artist at work.
