End of this year's Blogging

The 2012 school year is now over and we are looking forward to our Christmas summer holidays. I would like to thank those who have taken the time to send messages to the children via this blog and to all of you who have visited here to share in our learning experiences this year.
 I hope this Christmas ends your year on a cheerful note and you look forward to a fresh and bright new year. Here’s wishing you a very Merry Christmas, a safe and relaxing holiday and a Happy New Year.

We will be back blogging here when the 2013 school year begins in early February.

To end our year we had a lot of fun with an app we found on the iPad.....
 have a look at this….What do you think of David, Cam, and Jonty’s dance moves?

Pool Party!!

As an end of year treat today... we joined with Room 4 and had a pool party! Wow it was soooo much fun. We brought along some of our favourite pool toys from home and enjoyed an extra long time in the nice cool water. Then once we got out and had got dressed we had a shared lunch together. The end of the school year is now only just around the corner....

Our Whole School Triathlon

On Tuesday this week our whole school took part in a triathlon. In Room 3 we were in a team of 3 people except Edward who did the whole thing on his own!
It was heaps of Fun. Bella even dyed her hair for the day. We had to run, bike or swim. Some of us hadn't even been in our school pool very much before that day but now we want to be in the pool all the time!

Whanau Group Activity

We had a challenge in our Whanau groups this week.
Each group had to make a traditionally shaped Christmas tree... The challenge part however was we could only use 10 sheets of newspaper, 2-3m of cellotape some cellophane and some foil. It had to be free standing and have decorations. Take a look at some of the creations.

Today Room 4 discovered a whole lot of ants outside our classes. So of course we had to go and take a look. There were heaps of them! I wonder what they were doing?

They are a bit hard to see in the concrete. Can you see them???
