In Week 6 we started our Skills4Life lessons with Sport Taranaki.  Our focus is on improving our small ball skills while developing teamwork, communication and resilence.
Here are some photos from the game called "Hula Huts".

Term 2, Week 6

Wow! What a busy Term we have had so far!

Our Inquiry into "Serious Fun" is well under way.  Already we have learnt how to keep ourselves safe while online.  With help from Harold from Life Ed we are great, responsible digital citizens.

Our trip down to the Marae was a huge success. All students, parents and teachers were welcomed onto the Marae with a Powhiri.  The day was then spent playing traditional Maori games, sketching and eating a delicious hangi!

Stained Glass Effect Art

Stained Glass Effect Art

In Room 4 we have been doing some cool effective art that really stands out.All of us kids really enjoyed doing such a bright and colourful activity. 

Steps on making our stained glass art.

  1.  We choose a subject then drew a outline of it.
  2. We covered the outline with colour flow to make it appear like a stained glass border.
  3. We painted the inside each area with dye so that the art had bright colours. 

P.S We even discovered a secret recipe on making Colour Flow.
Hope you like them.

Honesty, Perseverance and Respect.

All of us in Room 4 love getting merit awards for at assembly. When we follow the school values by showing special qualities we are rewarded. Our goal is to one day get enough a teacher and principal certificates to get a MERIT AWARD. 

Mrs Zieltjes is funny at assembly and also generous with award prizes when we are chosen for 'Let's Go'.  But we do have to deserve to be in her draw by walking, scootering, cycling, biking or catching a bus to school. Too many cars dropping off children makes our school street to busy and dangerous, also we need to be fit because we are sporty, energetic kids.

AMERICANA comes to Oakura

We love the day when all of the old USA cars pass by the school corner. Some are unusual, some are colourful, all of them are shiny but they all make lots of noise from their V8 motors and old horn sounds. Here are some of our choices and thanks Regan for taking photos on the iPad.
