Term 4 Highlights

Well it's certainly been a busy term. We've shared our learning experiences with our whanau during Creative Week; been part of the Flat Connections Project and skyped a school in America; had Tatjana join our class all the way from Germany; made bread, butter and picked vegetables from our garden, and welcomed more children into our class.

Now we're getting ready for a well earned holiday and it's time to look back at all we've achieved this term. A special thanks to Tatjana, Mrs Van Schaijik, Miss Morrison, Mrs Irshad, Gayle, and all our parent helpers.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone!

What a Crazy Penguin!

Sometimes the big kids come and read us a story that they have written. Caitlin's big brother Ronan, who is in Year 4, read us his story about what happens next in this picture.

Wow! I can see a polar bear laying on the cold and wet ice but a penguin had some cymbals...   Then the polar bear woke up and he was cranky. He raced after the penguin. The penguin ran and ran. The penguin saw water and he jumped into the water but when he looked behind himself he saw a seal. The penguin raced to land...but too late the seal got the penguin. The seal ate the penguin.
"Yum!" said the seal.
The polar bear then saw another penguin. She had a bag of fish. The polar bear sprang at the penguin. The penguin ran and ran until she could see a cave. She ran into the cave. The polar bear ran and ran but... then he got lost in a snow storm. The penguin was safe with her bag of fish.
