Term 3, Week 6, 2015
This has been an exciting week at school. I finished my testing and so many children in Room 7 have made very pleasing progress and are becoming terrific readers and confident spellers.
On Wednesday Maia ran at the Interschool Cross Country in Ohaeawai. She came a very creditable 19th place. I know we were so proud of her and when she came back to school on Thursday she told us the highlight was the "running".
On Friday we went to visit Harold and Bridget in the Life Education Caravan. We learnt about how we breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. We dance and ran around the caravan to see how fast our heart would pump after we had exercised.
Jade and Leecaeshian asked many wondering and curious questions. We also learnt that Sunshine, exercise, oxygen and good food were needed every day.
We are all excited to go back and see Harold and Bridget on Monday. Please ask your child what they have learnt in the Caravan.
Have a great weekend and keep up the awesome support as you hear your child read and learn their spelling words.
Mrs Birchall and Room 7.
