Leisure Focus - Creating Board Games

The Year 5 & 6 team had a great afternoon yesterday playing their games that they had created. Some students made up indoor games while others created outdoor games. All agreed it was a fun afternoon and they enjoyed the wide range of games. A great way to finish our study on the importance of leisure and pleasure in our lives.

Govett Brewster Art Gallery

 Room 7 students were fortunate enough to attend a session at the art gallery to learn about the history of film animation. Len Lye used pictures to make early movies. We had a look at old film strips and had a go at creating our own art to put inside a zoetrope. It was a great session which involved lots of hands on learning. A big thank you to our parent helpers and to Chris who ran the session.

Interschool Games Against Coastal Taranaki

Once again our students represented their school very well with everybody playing well as a team. We came away with some great results. Well done to our supporters and our wonderful coaches. You help make interschool games a very rewarding experience for everyone involved.

Puanga Activities

Room 7 and Room 5 students worked together to create a piece of art that reflected some information they found out about Puanga. The students had fun creating different art designs for kites as during the Maori New Year, kites are often flown. This is because the kite represents a connection between the Earth and heaven.

QR Code Scavenger Hunt

Our Year 5 & 6 students really enjoyed using ipads to find QR codes located in secret locations around the school environment. Working in teams, once they found the codes, the students had to scan them with their ipads to reveal a question related to fractions and ratios. Well done to the winning team - a novel way to practise our maths skills.
