Buddy Time with Room 8

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.

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.

Fire Safety

Our inquiry this term is Safety and on Friday we had fire fighters and a fire truck come to visit! We know what to do if there is a fire: Get down, get low, get out and stay out!!!

The firefighters showed us all their cool equipment.

Bark Presentation

Last Friday, We learnt about Dog Safety. We learnt how to meet a dog and how to stay safe around dogs. Our favourite rhyme was "If a dog is free, stand like a tree." We got to play a game, which was a lot of fun. Our favourite part was getting to meet the dog at the end.
