Kiwi Class Dr Seuss Balloons

Kiwi Class has been continuing our Dr Seuss theme by making some hot air balloons that have a goal for this year on them. Come and have a look at them displayed in our classroom.

St Dominic

We have all been learning a lot about St Dominic de Guzman who started the Dominican order and our school is a Dominican school. We have also been learning about Rose of Lima and Catherine of Siena who are the Saints for our houses.

Activator Fun in JH2

On Monday 5th February the Sport Activators came to have some fun with us - helping us to develop some fundamental skills which will help us as we grow and pick up techniques used for different sports.

We played "Flip Hoop" where we had to use our hand-eye co-ordination to get an object into our hoop.  If we achieved the shot we could flip our hoop over so it was further away and then attempt again at a greater distance, some of us almost got to the other side of the hall!

After this we played "Turtle Tag" which required us to work together as a team and be aware of our surroundings.  This was so much fun, most of us chose this as our favourite activity of the day.
Thanks Sport Activators for coming to teach us some awesome new games and skills.

Superhero fun in Room Tui!

We have spent a bit of time learning about our 'Superhero' theme and what this means for us in Room Tui.  Since starting school we have been working on a couple of different superhero themed art works and discussing what 'super powers' we have.  

Please come and check out our finished 'Welcome Wall' at the entrance to our class to see what these 'powers' are - you might find you have these powers too!

We also have some amazing superhero paper/dye art hanging in our class for you to enjoy...Here is a preview of some of us creating our art...
