Welcome to Miss Jeffries

Room 17 is excited to announce that next term they are going to have an American student with them for 6 weeks. Miss Jeffries is from Salisbury University in Maryland. Today we were lucky to meet her and some of her friends as they stopped in for a whirlwind visit. We can't wait to see her again and hope she has a great time visiting other schools and countries.

The Queen of Space came to visit

Today the Serina the Queen of Space came to visit our school. She sang songs and together with her side kick Gloria (the guinea pig) told us the story of Matariki. It was a very exciting time.

The Haka

Last Friday we were lucky enough to have the Howick College Kapahaka group come and perform at our assembly. The boys asked if anyone wanted to come and join them on stage to perform the Haka. J.P and B.R were the only two brave enough to give it a go and was awesome!!! We are very proud of them and think it looks superb. Good to know that the future of the Haka is in such good hands.

Our descriptive writing

Today we looked a picture of a cat. Next we brainstormed all of the words we could think of to go under each heading. After we had done this we went away and wrote at least 4 sentences on our own, Miss Wright is amazed at the descriptive work we have come up with.

We played with some pieces of a comet....
