Kia ora Koutou Katoa. Room 16 and 17 is a collaborative working environment. We are an enthusiastic bunch of New Entrant and Year 1 children. We hope you enjoy looking at our page and seeing all the learning and fun that is happening.
Wow on Friday we had so much fun skipping in the Jump Rope for Heart day.The school turf was set up with different skipping stations for us to rotate round.We had been practising different ways of skipping during PE lessons and had even tried out different lengths of ropes.It was great to have some of the senior children to help turn the really long ropes.😃 Here are some photos from the fun day.It was great to have some our families there to support and encourage us during our skipping.
We learned how to make dinosaurs out of geometric shapes, used our problem solving skills to solve puzzles, and learned how to play snap with a deck of cards by finding matching numbers and suits. Lots of great learning and fun!
Today we had Constable Chris visit with her colleague,Constable Mike.Constable Mike brought his police dog Dirk along to show us his amazing tracking skills.Kirk is only 18 months old.We were very impressed to see Dirk respond to voice and hand signals.
