The Buzz about Bees

This term Room 14 has been learning all about bees. 

We started off thinking about what we would like to know about bees and then wrote all of our questions on hexagons and made them into a hive. 

We then worked together looking on the iPads and in books to answer our questions. 

With all the new information we had, we decided to make a book to share all our exciting facts.

Kids Helping Kids Market

The Kids Helping Kids market stall did a roaring trade at the fruit and veggie market on Sunday. Thank you to everyone who bought something from the stall.

We are very proud of the Senior Syndicate kids who volunteered their time to man the stall and worked really hard as a team to fundraise for Koru Care. Oliver worked the full four hours, and was well-supported by Theo S, Aliyah and Jesse. Thanks to Jayden C for helping pack up.

More used household goods well be available for sale on Wednesday afternoon - 2.30pm to 5.30pm, outside Room 7.

Our Train Trip to Wellington

On Monday 13th November Room 11/12 caught the train at Johnsonville Station into Wellington.  
It was freezing cold.  Everyone loved the train trip.  So much so you could have heard a pin drop. Once we arrived we stopped off at McDonald's on Bunny Street for a bite to eat before heading back to Johnsonville.

In Term 3 nine Year 6 students worked with Keryn Akers from the Wellington Loop, as well as students from St Bernard's School, Brooklyn and Thorndon School to learn how to program robots.  They then had to apply their learning and program the robots to do a variety of activities of their design.

Room 3 and Room 8 Softball

This term we have had some awesome people from Softball Wellington come in and work with us.  We have been learning how to throw the ball properly, how to run the bases, how to hit the ball off the T and how to field.  We have really enjoyed learning these new skills and working with the people from Softball Wellington.  We hope that they can come back again next year and teach us some more things.  We are going to work hard on our softball skills over the summer!
