Term 4 Underway

Congratulations to our 'Stars of the Week'  Brandy and Jayden.

Welcome back to Term 4, We The new term has finally started, after a what felt like a very short holiday we are all back at school and ...kinda ready to go! This is going to be one of our most packed terms, with athletics, a bit of swimming and our end of year assembly, and that's only a bit of it! -Sofia

ATHLETICS Every Tuesday and Thursday, Room 4, 10,9 and room 13 are practicing for athletics. We practice in our house groups. The sports we are doing are shot put, discus, long jump and high jump. Yesterday Te Aroha my house (a house group) was at discus. -Anna K
On Monday and Wednesday room 9,10,4 and 13 do long and short distance run. We do the run in our houses. It is the middle school fitness. - Charli
On Thursday we invented a modified version of tic tac toe where Mrs Haddock would draw up a tic tac toe grid and we would use are new cushions. Mrs Haddock split us into 4 groups, then she said group one gets orange, group two kiwifruit ,group three gets watermelons and group 4 got lime. You had to grab your teams cushions (you get 4 cushion for each team) and then the first person on each team would run up and place a cushion and run back and tag the next person in line. And then they run when the person that place the first cushion would go to the back of the line and so on. But when all of the cushions are placed and there is no more, the next person would run up and they are able to move one of their cushion. In this game you don’t need to wait for the other player to move their piece(fruit). - Riley

On Monday, Mrs H brought in new fruit cushions, Mrs H got, Lime, Orange & Kiwifruit. The class was trying to get off the couch so they can get one! On Wednesday, we had a special delivery of Watermelons! Overall there is 16 cushions. (4 of each).
