Wow! What a jam-packed four days we've had! We were off to a great start with NZ author Mark Sommerset coming to talk to us and share some of his fantastic stories. You may know some of his titles (Baa Baa Smart Sheep, Cork on the Ocean, Two Little Bugs).
Thursday marked the beginning of Matariki, the maori new year. We have heard several stories about the 7 stars that mark the new year. We had so much fun creating our art pieces. Make sure you come in and check them out!
Thank you to all the Grandparents who managed to pop in on Friday morning. It was so wonderful to see the children sharing their learning with you. There was a lot of excitement in the air.
Today we ended Bullying Free Week with Pink Shirt Day. It was wonderful to see the whole school dressed up in pink showing their support for Bullying Free Week. We read Oat the Goat as mentioned in Ms Adamson's newsletter and talked about how to be a good friend and what we could do if he we found ourselves in his position. Earlier this week, we had a special guest speaker from Kids Can visit us and talk about what they do. Did you know that they fee approximately 32 000 children a week?
