On Wednesday morning we joined a whole lot of other junior children from Wakefield, Appleby, Ranzau, and Brightwater schools, to take part in a range of fun sporting activities. These kind of days are great for trying new things and building friendships.

Discovery Time Week 6

This week during Discovery Time were were looking at the simple machine..levers. Many of our activities involved levers of some sort.

Water Safety and Kayak Fun

We have been learning how a life jacket can save our lives. We also learnt that other things can help keep us afloat in the water and how to be saved by holding onto a rope while getting pulled back to shore or a waiting boat.
Also we have been learning to paddle a kayak with our hands.

The TDC Library

About 3 times a term we visit the Tasman District Library in Richmond. It is a great time of sharing books together and learning about all the resources that the library has to offer.
We just love sitting with a book and having a look at it with our friends.

Room 3 and 4 visit McKee Reserve

Today we took a break from everyday school life and went for a trip to the beach.... The weather was perfect. We had a picnic lunch, had a walk in the native bush, played on the playground and looked in the rock pools. It was a very enjoyable day. Thank-you to our very supportive parents for taking the time out of your busy days to come with us.
