Today we did Capoeira. It was cool because you got to do side kicks and cartwheels. It was very fun!

Today in Autahi we were given some tadpoles to look after. Many of us were really interested in what they were and how they moved.
In our ABC groups we talked about what we knew about them, observed how they moved and what they looked like and then predicted changes when they grow (if any)...
We had loads of ideas to share with each other. Which then promoted a lot of conversation.

First we had to mix the jelly powder with hot water until it all dissolved. This means that all the jelly has disappeared. We all took turns to stir the jelly.
Then we had to put it in the fridge but we were a little worried that the teachers might eat the jelly so we decided to write them a note. We each helped to write the sounds we could hear and the words we know.
Teachers. No eating or opening the jelly!

We are loving this new Summer weather and hope it is here to stay! In the afternoons we are heading out for some fun in the sun and learning how to strike with a hockey sticks. We have had two fantastic Senior students, Frankie and George, showing us the basics and taking us through some skill drills. Great to see all those sunhats too!
|What a stunning day! Lucky we all have our sunhats.|
|Pushing the ball along with the stick.|
|Pushing and stopping the ball...quite tricky sometimes.|
|Practising holding our stick the right way.|
|Our senior buddies giving us a coaching session.|
|A mini game in action. Where is that ball?|
|Passing the ball to a partner. Practising to stop the ball is also a bit tricky.|
