Friday's Friday

Good afternoon,

A fairly busy day was had here...though it was pretty cool!

We started off practicing our Mihi...

...then we learnt a new poem My Little Sister.

After assembly the whole school trotted out again to practice next week's Liturgical play.

They did really well!

Have a great weekend,

Mr Grant

Thursday's Thursday

Good afternoon,

This morning kicked off with some more time learn'n.

They're doing so well I'll have to move on to quarter to and past next week.

After lunch 'twas all about practicing for the liturgical play. First as a class...

...then as a whole school.

Did I say "all about"? I meant mostly about. We actually finished the day with a game of duck, duck, goose.

Please remember to bring any library books lying around back to school.

CU in the morning,

Mr Grant

Practice Wednesday

Good afternoon,

Today we kicked off with some time based Maths...but not so much like The Doctor, more like...what time is it? (To the hour and half hour).

We also had a summative assessment on what the children have learnt through out Keeping Ourselves Safe unit.

This afternoon we finished the day with a practice for our part of the Liturgical Easter Play.

First in the room...

...then in the hall.

However, I have just learned that we're having the Easter Mass outside on the court! Still, at least Room 2 now have some idea of what they are to do...

And a good time was had by all!

CU tomorrow,

Mr Grant

Terrific Tuesday...

...oh, wait, that's next week.

Good afternoon,

And what an afternoon to forget to take photos of the children when they were outside! By the way, Room 2 managed to score 63 runs against Room 12 in our non-stop 'cricket' game. Their turn to throw the tennis balls next week.

We started the day with some maths - telling time to the hour.

These IWBs are pretty cool!

Later in the morning, White Reading Group shared yesterday's text with us, The Dinosaur's Cold. ('Cause they are reading today's text - Swoop! - over two days. Their books are getting too long to read in one sitting!)

See you tomorrow,

Mr Grant

Monday Madness

Good evening,

While I was out of the room with the rest of the J Team teachers planning for next term...chaos rained! No, not really!

At about 9:30 the whole school was called out to say goodbye to the Year 7/8s who were off to their camp.

Miss Rooney also took some photos during reading.

And a good time was had by all!

CU in the morning,

Inclusive Friday

Good afternoon,

Today was all about joining others. Firstly with Room 3 for Maori...

...then with the rest of the school to see the Year 3s off to join the rest of the M Team at Living Springs for the day...

...including the cat...

...then with the rest of the J Team for fitness...

...and finally with Room 12 in the library.

Just to prove that we were capable of independent learning, we also learnt a new poem...

...and finished our Philip pictures. Mostly. They are now on display in the room.

Have a great weekend,

Mr Grant
