Milk in schools

Today we had milk in schools for the first time. We all enjoyed our milk and want to thank Fonterra for allowing it to happen! 

We also learnt how to fold it so it can be recycled to make things like roof tiles. 

We even got an award from Whaea Donna for folding and recycling our containers correctly!

Monster stories

In Room 15 we have been learning to add detail in our stories. We made our monsters using our hand or footprints then added detail.

You can read some of our stories below...

Once upon a time a planet full of monsters were very happy. One monster was very nice. She had green and red hair, a red body, white legs and arms, one eye and sharp teeth. They were very happy until one day the army made a time machine and came to the planet. The soldiers started to shoot the monsters. The monsters said "stop shooting us. Please stop or we'll come to your country and hurt your people, so stop." "Alright." They stopped and went back to their own land and lived happily ever after.

Once upon a time in a jungle of pyramids there was a lot of people that wanted to go in the pyramid. But one day a scary monster named Tim. He destroys pyramids and everyone was scared. Tim was sad, he wanted to make friends. So he went home and sent an invitation to all of his friends to a party so he could have fun. So Tim stopped breaking pyramids and everyone came to his party and asked him to be his friend and Tim said "yes." So everyone lived happily ever after.

Buddy class

We love buddy time with room 2. Last week we made flowers for Mrs Prasad to communicate we love her.

We had to listen carefully to the instructions so we knew what to do.

We used tissue paper and pipe cleaners - they looked so cool!

Character counts

We are a school that think it is important to show good character. This means we use our values: respect, responsibility, consideration, compassion, kindness, duty, obedience, honesty and truthfulness!

Our PLG Whanaungatanga decided to show good character and clean up all the rubbish at our school.

Check out us picking up all the rubbish.
