A Duffy Assembly

Henry came to talk to Pt England school and told the children how important it is to learn to read.  Carol West and Kevin Boroevich also came to the assembly.  They are from Dominion Construction who very generously support the Duffy Foundation and make it possible for the children to receive books to take home and treasure.  The children listened to their talk and presented them with a lei and a thank you card they had made.

Finding Matching Words

Maggie and Ann Marie had fun finding matching words on eggs.  They had to look carefully at all the letters to see that they had the right words to match up.  Good noticing girls - you did a good job.

Easter Cards

The children made some beautiful Easter cards for their whanau.  They made the crayon resistant eggs by making patterns on an egg shape with white crayon.  It was hard to see the white crayon patterns on the white paper.  When stripes were painted, the patterns appeared as if by magic much to the children's delight.  The egg was cut out and glued onto a card on which they had written a greeting.  They were very proud of the beautiful cards.

Alphabet Eggs

Nate, Mariposa and Feiloaki  had fun matching the upper and lower case alphabet letters on eggs.  They discovered that you had to look carefully to match the letters and the egg puzzle pieces.  "These eggs make me think of Easter eggs," said Nate.
