For Reading this week we have been practising our oral language and acting skills by reading School Journal plays.
We rehearsed a lot and then raided the dress up box for costumes.
The plays were performed really well and everyone got great feedback from the rest of the class.
We love using our headphones but, even though we are very careful with them, they do get in a bit of a tangle. This one though was a real mess and lots of us (even Ms Hampson) tried to untangle them but they just got even more tangled up!
Luckily Isaac has a de-tangling expert in his family......Oma!
Isaac took the mess home over the weekend and brought them back all neat and tidy in little baggies.
Next Monday is our school athletics day. Come to school in your PE gear. You may wear track pants as it can still be a bit cool in the morning.
Here is a reminder of what else you will need:
-Sneakers (Must be worn on the track. No bare feet) -School Hat -Sunscreen -Drink bottle (water) -Lunch and snacks -School Polar fleece or Jersey -Wet weather gear (raincoat) When: Monday 16 November 2015 (postponement day is Wednesday) Where: Saxton Track Parents, families and friends are welcome to come along and enjoy the day!
Taekwondo is a Korean martial art with an emphasis on defence rather than attack. Katie brought in her Dobok (uniform) and sparring equipment to share with her classmates (who were all keen to do some sparring with her!) Katie gave us a demonstration and we were very impressed with how high and fast she could kick!
This week we have been learning how to keep ourselves safe in certain situations. Constable Garland has been coming into our classroom and discussing ways to be safe and also helping us to learn what to do if we need help.
What a fantastic morning we had at Whakatu Marae.
We learnt some things about the Marae; when and why it was built and also about the things inside the Wharenui.
We had a great morning tea and then got into groups to say out Mihimihi.
We couldn't take photos inside the Wharenui but here are some of the outside.
What a busy weekend Ms Hampson and Mrs Trolle had organising the Year 5/6 Camp Fundraiser! It was very successful and we were very grateful to have such wonderful people who gave up their time to help with the Garage Sale. A HUGE thank you to Di Lamont and also the Churchman Family for all of the time and effort they have contributed to this event (and Toby isn't even going to camp this year!) Another HUGE thank you to all the other helpers (parents and students-you know who you are and you were all awesome!) and to everyone who contributed something for us to sell.
