Athletics Day!

We had a great day at Athletics yesterday! We all tried really hard and made our teachers (and parents) very proud. 

Huge congrats to Nate for coming second overall for the year one boys and to Olivia, Ashlyn, and Matthew for coming first overall in their year groups!

Don't forget Athletics tomorrow (Wednesday 25th)! Just a reminder that there will be no pizza orders as we will have lunch at the track.

We need to remember:

  • School bag with jacket
  • Drink bottle and cut lunch
  • Hat and sunscreen
  • Inhalers if asthmatic
  • Labelled clothing (Mufti -preferably house colours)
  • Sneakers

It will be a great day out at Massey!

We are... Creative!

On Friday we had Genius Hour with a focus on being creative! Afterwards we had a think about where we would fit on the Creative Matrix. Miss Crowther was really impressed with how honest and reflective we are about our own creativity. We were awarded a Bronze, Silver or Gold medal depending on our self assessment. 
We love our new medals!! We were so keen to show them off that we all wanted to stay in and get a photo after the bell had gone for lunchtime! Lots of us are now eager to earn the next medal so will keep checking our creative thinking against the matrix. 

We love being Creative!

Me and my Shadow!

Last week LC15 and 16 received a letter from our shadows. The letter asked us if we could find ways to use our body to make our shadows look more exciting! We had lots of fun trying out some creative poses with our groups. Here are some photos of us getting creative!

Noah's Story

It was a dark and stormy night. Tom and Zak were going tramping. They were in the hut and fast asleep. Then... Suddenly they heard some creaking so they tip toed out into the spooky forest. They shivered and ran down the path. The did not see the path end. "Where are we?" said Tom. "I don't know" said Zak. "Arhhhhhh!!" Zak screamed. Zak was 6 and Tom was fourteen. "We are lost". They ran some more and came to a clearing and found a castle. "Yay!" They went in the castle and heard some talking. They followed it but the castle was falling apart. The people all ran for their lives but... a dragon came and took Tom and Zak home. When they got home they said "What an adventure". "What adventure?" said Mum. "None of your business".

Book Character Day!

What a fun day we had on Friday! We were lucky enough to have Terry from the library come and read us a couple of Books written by NZ authors. Just before morning tea we had a parade so everyone in the school could see our super cool costumes. Well done to Liv who was picked by Mrs Kenyon for a special prize! 
The teachers were so impressed with how well we all dressed up!!
