100 Word Challenge

This week our prompt for our 100 word challenge was felt like.... We had to use these words in our story. Here are some of our 100 word challenges.

Dear Dumb Dairy, It all started when… One cold evening I went for a walk down to the closets shop. Mum told me I can spend five dollars. When I got to the shop, there was a big long line. I went to get me a drink and then a man came up to me and said, " DO YOU HAVE SOME MONEY". I was so scared, I said nothing to him. He asked me again, I went quickly into the line to pay for my drink. When I payed for it, I open it and I drank it. My drink felt like fizzy coming down my throat.

Hot air balloon ride.

Last week we wrote stories about if we went for a ride in a hot air balloon. We then coloured a picture of a hot air balloon from coLAR and then brought it too life with the app and had a buddy video it. After that we stood in front of the green screen and recorded our story. We then put together. Take a look at Keira's and Jeannie's.

Our trips

This week we had to think about a country we would like to visit and find some activities that we could do if we visited that place. We then got a buddy to video us in front of the green screen and we shared what we could do in the country. We then inserted an image behind it. Take a look at Callaghan's and Alex's.

"Light it up!"

Challenge: can you make the light bulb go?

This group was the first to get the light bulb to light up. This photo doesn't show the excitement when it first lit up - the neighbours would have heard them squeal!

This group managed to keep the lightbulb going without any hands! How clever!

Running, running and more running!

The senior team had been working really hard on our fitness in preparation for the cross country. Last week, the day everyone was anxiously waiting for arrived. We sat in our houses, and in our age groups, to cheer on each race. Man was it noisy! We had lots of whanau and parent come to support us.

Miss Thiele was proud of us for giving the cross country a really good nudge! 

Well done Maz for winning the 8 year old girls race!

Daffodil Day

We were allowed to wear our slippers to school in support of Daffodil Day. As a school, we raised over $200 for the cancer society! Go US!


Over the last 4 weeks Room 2 has been going to the gym. We have learnt how to land safely on our feet, how to forward and backwards roll, and how to do a cartwheel. 

We would like to say a HUGE thank you to our parents and whanau who helped us walk to and back from the gym and also assisted us at the gym. The children are so lucky to have such supportive parents and whanau!

See that reflection in the water...

Check out some of reflection artwork. we had to cut out coloured bits of paper and place them on our backgrounds. We had to make sure everything in our reflection was identical. 

Get into the Spirit!
