Tena koe

We have been learning how to say hello in te reo.  We learned how to say hello to one person (tena koe), two people (tena korua), and everyone (tena koutou).  Then we read a story about Big Bird saying hello and drew our pictures of him saying hello to us.

Making sandwiches

On Friday we learned how to make jam sandwiches.  We spread the butter and the jam from side to side just like we were patting the cat.  We cut the bread carefully and them ate our sandwich.  Now we will be able to make them at home by ourselves.

Swimming sports

We went to the town pools for our annual school swimming sports.  On the way we had a picnic lunch under the trees in the Domain.  The pool was nice a warm and we had lots of fun racing in the beach pool.  Our Mums and Dads came to watch.

Teddy Bears Picnic

Last week we had a Teddy Bears Picnic.  We all brought our Teddy Bears to school and sat outside under the tree for a picnic with Max.  Max is our class bear.  He has been staying with each of the children during the past three weeks and soon he will be going to stay with his Grandma and Grandad.  We have lots of fun with him and will miss him.  Watch out for him during the year.

We read the story about a dog.  Then we made collage pictures of dogs.

Kids Corner visit - waka

Kids Corner children came to visit.  We coloured in t-shirts with the words "I am ...." on them.  Then we put them on a stick with our photo at the top and put all the children into our waka.  The preschool children took their waka back to their centre.  We decorated the top of the waka with koru designs.

Parts of our school

We went for a walk around the school grounds, then made a picture of the things we like doing in the playground.  Our playground is cool.
