The Xmas Wrap

The entire community got together to celebrate a wonderful year and have a bit of a sing song. 

It is relatively informal, with families sitting and singing together.
It's also a time where we farewell our Year 6 graduates
and they have an opportunity to say a few words! The Year 6 students were fantastic!

Beach Day

It's a beautiful day for our beach day!

Teddy Bears Picnic

If you go down to Autahi today,
You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go down to Authai today,
You'd better go in disguise.

For every boy and girl in the room,
Has bought a teddy bear, and then we'll soon...
Have a parade,
And have a teddy bears picnic!

Foamy Fun!

Can you write your name in the foam? How many words can you make? What does it feel like?

Fabulous writing

"My rainmaker worked.  It made proper rain drops like real rain.  I can make it better if I could take the tea cup off." 

Rainmaker invention -testing

This week we have been inventors and we have designed and made our rainmakers.  We tested them today to see if they worked and what kind of down pours we would produce !!

We are now talking about the next phase in the design process:

We have made
We have tested 
We have reflected and evaluated 

Our next step is - making improvements.
