Term 1 Week 5

The week started with a  fun family picnic on Monday after school. It was lovely to see some of our Room 10 friends joining in the fun.
This week we went to the Nelson Museum for our first trip outside school. We learnt heaps about 4 native parrots kakapo, kaka, kea and karkariki. Thanks to all the parents and grandparents who came along to help us.
Pandemonium of Parrots: Room 10 on PhotoPeach

The Pandemonium of Parrots was a great inspiration to start us thinking about birds we might like to paint on the art panels in our Junior playground. On Friday we watched Dianne officially opening the new playground. You may have spotted some of our Room 10 friends in the paper this week showing us all how much we love our new environment. A big, big thank you to the School Community Group and the Board of Trustees who made this project happen.
In our No Child Left Inside lesson we cooled off by aiming our under arm throws into a pool of water. At the end of the lesson we saw how good our aim was by trying to splash Jane!

 In Discovery Time we focused on the Key Competency of Relating to Others.

There were plenty of  examples of what these behaviours and skills sound like and look like.
