Year 3 and 4 had a great time at Swimming Sports. They lined up their house colours: Stewart, Macmillan, Gledstanes and finally Mulgan.
They got points for coming 1st, 2nd &3rd in races and the house captains tallied up how many points each house got.
These amazing kids did dolphin dives, breaststroke and one or two lengths of freestyle. They spent many hours practising for this! Well done and good effort everyone!

Room 12 has been reading the BFG by Roald Dahl and they made some special trumpets. The trumpets can hear nightmares so the BFG knows if a kid has had a nightmare. Then they can blow in it and it blows out the nightmare and it will replace it with a good dream.
They also made dream catchers. If people have nightmares, the dream catcher will catch the nightmare and they will have a good dream instead. Some of the dream catchers have a love heart in the middle.

The kids in Room 1 were learning to write neatly and colour neatly. They were also learning to get along nicely and include one another.
In Room 2 they were writing, reading and doing ready for learning, where they prepare for the older years at Katikati Primary School. In writing they were learning how to spell and use fullstops and capital letters. They are going to be superstars at reading and writing!

This week Rooms 3 and 4 have had Sea Week. They all made awesome jellyfish and turtles with facts inside them and they made little books that said ‘shark attack’ on them with shark facts inside. They got to make things that had something that they were learning, like opening their eyes under water. Some of the boys when we got there were making cars out lego. They also did some cool voting of their favourite colours and their favourite colour was mostly blue. Well done Rooms 3 and 4 : )

Recently Rooms 8-9 had a bad thing…
They did not know how to survive the terrible test. But they had the chance to escape!
Now for the fun to happen. The kids did some face art! They got a photo of each other and they ripped and cut out their facial body parts like their eyes, mouth, nose etc. The kids also made wonderful creations of lego houses and towns and cities.

In class this week room 21 & 22 have been doing emoji writing. What is emoji writing, you may ask? Well, emoji writing is where you would write a normal story but you replace some of the words with emoji stickers that look as that word describes.
In reading they have been making comic strips about superheroes and evil villains saving/destroying the world. ( For example: Super speed girl, Captain Dog, Come back, Elf man… etc). Also, they have been making paper mache masks to match their super hero/ villain.
In maths they have been learning about money and the animals/people that are on it. After researching they created their own money and added an animal/person of choice.
In art room 21 & 22 have been upcycling cardboard tubes that were to be painted and glued together to represent a Christmas tree. This has been entered into the Katikati Upcycling Christmas Tree competition.

This week School Reporters have been interviewing random classes and asking what they have been doing for Book Week.
Rooms 10 and 11 : This week our teacher have been reading a special chapter book to the class.
Room 14 : We have been researching about Roald Dahl and some of his books!
Rooms 21 and 22: We have been reading and writing alternative fairy tales with different settings and endings.
Big thanks to scholastic for sending the school many fun and interesting books as a fundraiser for the school library - 35% of the money raised from selling books goes towards improving the library.
At morning tea and lunchtime, teachers have been reading stories to children in the playground. There have also been lots of fun book-related activities going on.
At the end of the week many kids dressed up - either cultural or as a book character.
