Te Reo

Today we had a lesson with Whaea Lisa

We were learning the te reo names for the parts of our body.  I wonder how many names the students can remember!!

Coding on the ipads

Today the lovely Catriona from Core Education came in to teach our kids how to do some simple coding on the ipads.
The students were very engaged and quite excited about what they could create.
Thanks Catriona!

Pukenui Forest Bush Walk

We walked a short way in to the Pukenui Forest, near where the kiwi were released on the 17th March.  We stopped for our lunch and then explored the stream.  One of the students was clever enough to catch a freshwater crayfish!

Building up physical stamina for these types of activities would certainly benefit some of the Pod 7 children!

The Magician!

The students LOVED the magic show at camp.  Mike the Magician did a fabulous show and had all the children in stitches.

Adventure Forest

We all had a lot of fun at the Adventure Forest last week.  The students were all pushed out of their comfort zone and were very proud of what they achieved!

Learning how to use an index

This term we are doing a study on kiwi.  As part of our research we are learning how to use an index.  Here's some photos of us using an index to look up keywords.
