Tuakana Teina - Whakawhānaungatanga

Room 5 are our big brothers and big sisters.  We spent some time getting to know them by playing games with them on the field.  They help us with our spelling, read with us and join us in prayers on Monday afternoons in the church. 



Physical Education - Ki o Rahi

For physical education we are learning to play hakareta.  Hakareta is a junior version of Ki o Rahi, which is a game played by Māori for many centuries.  We had fun lots of fun chasing the guardians and trying to score points by hitting the tipu.



Religious Education – Jesus

W.A.L.T. identify people at home and at school who show love to others as Jesus did

We worked together as a team to create a colourful collage of people who show love to us and others.  We then stood as a group, in front of our class and spoke about these people.

Class Mass

We attended a class mass along with Room 4 and Room 5 in the Library.  Father Arul told us the names of the garments he wears like the habit, stole, chasuble and cincture.  Room 2 stood and read the Prayers of the Faithful and we celebrated the Eucharist.

We did not have a bowl of Holy Water to bless ourselves so Father Arul sprinkled water over us.  We are thankful to Father Arul for spending his time with us and we enjoyed the singing.

Misha and Bethl

Library Visit

On Wednesday 30 March, Room 2 and Room 1 walked to our local library Mt Roskill. We meet the librarians who talked about the school holiday workshop programme.  It sounded like fun!

Then we were split into groups and we had a scavenger hunt around the different sections in the Library to find worms that were hidden inside books.

After that we had a building challenge using spaghetti pasta and marshmallows.  We made a skytower and a marae and lots of others sculptures.

We were then given paper to create creatures.  We had fun at the library. 

Thank you to the parents that came along to support us.
