They brought a very yummy birthday cake and a Ngatu/Tapa cloth for us to sit on.

Elizah looked awesome in his Tongan clothes... what a special day!

Recycling FUN!!

We have started learning about what it means to refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, re-home and rot!

Our favourite song to sing about it, is Jack Jonsons '3Rs song' ... Click here to listen to the song on youtube.

Today we used some of our recycled materials we have been collecting to make our own fashion!!
We have been making masks out of fizzy drink bottles, and we have made Hope into a plastic bag princess!

Super Heros!

Our start to learning fractions

Room 1 and 2 were lucky enough to do all their learning together today!

For Maths we did a snapshot on learning fractions, and in partners we had to think about how to make a half and a quarter, what they look like, and what one half and one quarter means... we started off with pencil and paper, and then had a bit more fun...

We are learning AFL

 Today we had our first AFL lesson - we will be learning skills and how to play until the end of Term 2. 
We had a go at doing the 'drop punt' today and we need to remember that the 'Lace is away from the face!'

Thank You KidsCan!!

We have had wonderful rain jackets donated to us by KidsCan, and now we have super cool new shoes!

Don't we look flash!

Mrs Vercoe checked we all had the correct sizes.

Super cool shoes!!! We think they make us run fast.

LOTS of smiles in Room 2!

With it wet outside, there will be lots of dry feet walking home :)

Making Ginger Beer!

Kurariki adding Ginger and Lemon.
We have started to make Ginger Beer in Room 2.
Through making it we have looked at how some solids dissolve into liquids, and some don't. 
Right now our Ginger Beer is sitting next to the heater to make the yeast grow... which will make a gas!

Petelo and Dziah worked together to pour the  Sugar through the funnel.

Now we add the wet mix!

Lia was our photographer, but still got a turn at shaking!

We had to shake to mix everything together!!

 In a few days our Ginger Beer should be ready to drink!

In Room 2 we help each other learn!

In Room 2 we are all very clever, which means that we can help others when we finish our work!
Dziah is helping Kurariki colour in half of some shapes. 
Well done Dziah and Kurariki!
