Term 2, Week 3 Mathletics

We scored our lowest every class total this week, and only one person made it into the school top ten. Please make sure you are all completing your required 1,500 points each week.

Term 2, Week 3 Highlights

This week sure was action packed! Our top highlight was definitely our trip to Manurewa Marae. We had a tour around the Whare, heard about and acted out the Legend of Manurewa, and learned a new chant. All in all, an excellent day. A big thank you to the parents who came along and helped out - we couldn't have had such an awesome day without you! :)

Have a look at the amazing video Miss Chalmers made of our day out at the Marae via the link below.

Term 2, Week 2

Week one and two have flown by - we've been working hard on novel studies in literacy, investigating statistics during maths, and doing some drama in the afternoon block.

Our drama focus has been on Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, a story of mistaken identity and love triangles. We warmed up by learning the story of the play and about some of the characters. This week we focused on the character of Malvolio, the uppity butler who is pranked into believing that the Countess Olivia is in love with him!
