On the 18th of October, Room 2 had buddy time with Room 8. The children got split up and put with an older buddy. To celebrate Niuean language week, in their groups, the children completed a collage of the Niuean flag. Room 2's older buddies then found out 5 facts about Niue and shared them with their younger buddies. Room 2 had a really fun time with Room 8 celebrating Niuean language week.

Stepping Out with Constable Taina

Constable Taina came and taught us how to cross the road safely.
We learnt a lot and we have become very good at crossing the road safely, even Constable Taina said so!
We need to make sure our feet our behind the kerb.
We need to look left and right and left and right and listen for cars before we cross the road.
We don't cross the road until the cars stop for us
We look left and right as we cross the road
We look down sneaky driveways

Pow Words

We are learning to use Pow Words in our writing. Pow words make our writing more interesting. Today we wrote about storms because our big book is about a storm.  Here is some of our work.

The storm is wet. The storm is scary. I don't like the storm. I wasn't too scared because I had my teddy bear. - Jeremy

The storm is frightening. The storm is blue. I see a storm and the storm is cool. The storm is wet and the storm is hot. I hear the storm. - Moana

I heard the storm. The storm is cool because it's scary and the storm was scary. Boooom! THe thunder is scary. - Talyn

The storm is dark. I see a storm and I see a big bright storm. - Opeti

Kiwisport Term 3 - Hockey

We have been really lucky this term and we got to do two different Kiwisports - Snag Golf and Hockey!

We have really enjoyed learning about hockey and we have gotten very good at holding our sticks and keeping them on the ground. We don't lift them up because we might hurt someone.
