Kiwiana - A Pukeko In a Ponga Tree

The festive season is approaching... That happened fast!

The Pukeko Team are going to learn this cute little carol leading up to Christmas. It is a Kiwi version of the 12 days of Christmas. 

If you want to practice at home, here are the lyrics...

Sonshine Ranch

WHAT AN AWESOME DAY WE HAD!

We had the most incredible day today at Sonshine Ranch. We had the opportunity to go on a flying fox and rope swing, do some rock climbing, climb through tunnels, ride horses and pet some animals. 

To top it all off, the weather was absolutely stunning!

Here are a few photos from our day :)

A special THANK-YOU to the parent helpers who came along to help us today.

Why you should play our game - cup attack!
Opinion-
I think you should play our game because we are the only class with a cup challange.

Reason 1-
From our data that we collected, after 20 attempts our results showed that you are more likely to win than you are to lose this amazing game.

Reason 2-
I think you should play our game because we are the only team that makes you stack cups and then slide them down again. It is fun to play!

Reason 3-
This game involves technique to stack the cups up and slide them back down into formation. So if you enjoy fast games, this is the game for you!

Conclusion-
So that is why you should play our game because we are the only team which has this exciting and interactive Minute to Win it game. Don’t forget to stack it and pack it!

Rethinking our School Entrance - Survey
Reremoana School is currently working with the NZ Police and Auckland Transport to rethink the way the school entrance operates. To assist the school, we would appreciate it if you could take the time to respond to the questions in our survey.
At this time, we are gathering information, with the aim to develop options that can then be put forward to the School, the Community, the Ministry of Education and Auckland Transport. The survey needs to be completed by the 11th of November 2016. The more responses we have, the more feedback we can use in developing a safe environment for our children.
Click here for the link to the survey.

Every Monday should start off with making pikelets...

It was a day for yummy pikelets and funny photos!

We had so much fun making pikelets this morning, they were a real hit! 

Tomorrow we will continue on with our explanation writing. Come in and have a read :)

P.S Thank you to Leikahr for capturing these photos!

Moon Jumping

Moon Jumping!

The weather was absolutely beautiful yesterday afternoon, and what better way to to enjoy the sunshine than doing some MOON JUMPING! 

We learned that you would be able to jump six times further on the moon than you can on Earth! So we went outside and measured this out using Veroniques tape measure. 

You can see in each picture the small jump between the 2 students, we measured it out then multiplied it by 6 giving us the bigger distance. Amazing huh?
