This week the children in Room 5 had the opportunity to run and present in assembly.  It was such an amazing experience to share all the hard work we have been doing around out novel study on 'The One and Only Ivan'.  Here are some photo's of all the children presenting their different parts in assembly and the link to all the presentations.

A Hopping Good Time!!

After our trip to Orana Park we learnt that animals need enriching activities to keep them active, entertained and challenged.  We have our awesome office lady Jo bring along her two pet rabbits Nev and Ron.

Jo was able to explain to us that these rabbit are no ordinary rabbits but trained rabbits............trained to visit rest homes!  These special beings were a pleasure to have in our class.

The class then was set a challenge to create enriching activities for the rabbits.  Below are our creations:

Kia Kaha Christchurch

On Friday the children at Awahono school had a mufti day to raise funds for the victims of the Christchurch shootings.  We also wanted to send a tribute to show we are thinking of you all.  At 1.32 we observed 2 mins of silence.  Kia Kaha Christchurch we stand by you!

Orana Park 2019

Last week the children in Room 5 were lucky enough to have an over night trip away to Christchurch so we could visit Orana Park and learn first hand about Gorillas.  This trip was based around our novel study on 'The One and Only Ivan'.

Pool Party

This Friday we got to spend the best afternoon together at a whole school pool party!  Not only was there awesome music and swimming but the school fundraising committee organised a lolly scramble, ice blocks, candy floss and cake!!  It was such a wonderful afternoon.

Funday Friday!

So Friday came around so very quickly again!  This week we did some science around milk products.  First we turned cream into butter and we played around with milk and lollies!  Talk with the kids in Room 5 to find out what happened as they had to do some research to find why the reactions happened.

Cricket with Paddy!

Today we were lucky enough to have Paddy from Sport West Coast come out and give us some cricket skills.  Our favourite part was definitely the game at the end.
