Term 2 Inquiry!

This term our inquiry question is "How can we make a kite that will fly?"

We will be looking at the technology design process to create a kite that we can fly! This will involve us thinking critically, collaborating with our peers and evaluating the decisions we have made. We will also be talking about Matariki!

We finished our first term already!

It is hard to believe how fast the first term went by! Room 27 has worked so hard and Miss Peck is extremely proud of the effort all the students have put into their learning and being such amazing PES learners and friends. Thank you all for the great term and wishing you all a safe and happy holiday!

Here is a photo of our top three book club readers with their prizes! William, Lama and Zaria came to school early enough every morning to read their stories before going out to play. Great work!

An amazing story by Gabriella!

This week we watched the movie The Clocktower. Here is my narrative story:

Once upon a time there was a little girl that lived in a clocktower and the clocktower looked like a tornado. The little girl's name was Rozy and the little girl had a cog on the little girl's dress. The little girl had a shiny crown on her head and earrings on her ears. When she turned the world turned and the little girl was time. The little girl had to dance because it was her job and the little girl went outside because she wanted a balloon. She wanted to have a friend and I know she wanted her mum and dad.

Get Set Go - Learning how to throw!

In Kiwisport we have been learning how to throw both underarm and overarm! Yesterday the coach told us to draw a smiley face for underarm and for overarm we had to make big muscle arms. Here you can see Toni having a go at underarm throwing. He managed to knock over one of the cone targets - Well done Toni!

Rubbish Busters!

This term we are talking about looking after our environment and how we can contribute in a positive way. Yesterday, we decided that we would be Rubbish Busters and go on an adventure to bust all the rubbish around the village, field and playground. We set off as a class through the village and then created a Rubbish Busting line to cover the whole field. As we started cleaning up we saw some beautiful Pukeko. Seeing how much rubbish we picked up made us realise how even 20 minutes of team work could make such a difference - after all we want to see many more Pukeko enjoying our clean school! After we had picked up 3 bags full of rubbish and completed our mission we played in our rubbish free park. Well done Room 27, you were all amazing Rubbish Busters!

Kicking the week off with a great start!

Each week, first thing, on a Monday morning Team 2 has a team assembly. This is a great opportunity for us to all come together, talk about what is happening in our team and school, and to remember our korero for the week. As Mr Burt told us on Friday, we will be focusing on RIGHT TIME, RIGHT PLACE, and RIGHT ATTITUDE. We have also been practising our school waiata and some other beautiful songs which I will try and capture on video next week. Thank you Mrs. Nalder for leading our wonderful assembly this week!
