Welcome back to Term 2!

Welcome back to Term 2 in Room 8!
We have had a fantastic first week settling back into routine.A warm welcome to Coen and Cruze who started in Room 8 on Monday.
This week we were lucky enough to have Ms Leafberg do some Mr Men and Little Miss art with us. We had lots of fun and our pictures look great hanging up in the classroom!

On Friday we had the coaches from Kelly Sports come and do some fun sports activities like obstacles courses, basketball, and rugby. We were in a big group with our friends from Rooms 7 and 9. It was a blast!!!

Teddy Bear Picnic

On Friday Room 8 brought our teddies to school for a Teddy Bear Picnic with the rest of the Year 1 classes. We went out to the field with our lunchboxes and teddies and had a parade before we ate our lunch. Our teddies had lots of fun at school, and so did we!

Elmer the Elephant

Room 8 read Elmer by David McKee with Mrs Timmer. We talked about how everyone is different, and how our differences make us special. We made our own Elmers that you can come and see on display in Room 8. We hope you like them!

Lego Art

Room 8 made themselves into Lego people. First we made our background. We took our crayons for a walk across the page and then we dyed them. Next we designed a t-shirt for our Lego people. Then we coloured in the rest of our Lego people and stuck our faces on. We wrote stories about ourselves to go with our Lego people. Don't they look fantastic on our wall?

Football Kidz

The coaches from Football Kidz came to Pakuranga Heights last Wednesday. Our coach, Matthew, taught us how to dribble and stop the ball by playing fun games like Traffic Light, Jungle Book, and Shark Attack. We all gave it a go and had lots of fun! Thanks Matthew and Football Kidz!

Football Kidz run football workshops after school on a Monday for children ages 5-11. If you are interested in signing up please see the school office.
