Camp Fun!

We have began this term preparing for our camp. It has been fun and we are very excited about what we will be doing. Tomorrow we have to be at school by 7.30am with our bags packed ready to go. We used Google maps to help us with the time we need to leave school to be at camp on time!

One of the things we are going to do on camp is visit a Marae. We have been preparing hard for that because it is the first time most of us have experienced a Marae visit. Melville Intermediate have helped us with our mihi mihi on skype so we can say these on our visit, that was awesome!

Here is a sample of what it was like from our end!

We have also used Pecha Kucha to make presentations about the Marae we are visiting. This is a new skill we are learning for presentations. We made a mini Pecha Kucha where we used one slide for each student in our group and we had to talk for 20second to each slide. We were learning about the Marae so we understand how we need to behave and what to expect when we get there. Wow that was interesting!

We look forward to telling you about our great experience when we get back.

Pet Day!

Our annual Pet Day was a busy, sunny event.

Room 3 had a number of winning entries in the lamb and calf section but unfortunately they can't represent the school at Group Day because they will be on camp!

Maddie's rabbits won in the domestic pet competition which was really nice considering her upsetting experience with her per lamb passing away :-(

You can read about that on Maddie's blog, warning it is very sad!
