Tennis

Room 7 children had great fun this term, learning all about Tennis! We had a guy come in and teach us skills that will support us for when we play tennis.

Here are more photos.

Hula Hooping Pros!

Term 2's days began by being active! Room 7 enjoyed Hula Hooping with myself for the first week and then the other weeks they went and experienced;

  • Jump Jam
  • Large Ball skills
  • Circuits on the outside of the field
  • Folk Dancing
  • Skipping
  • Dance/Tai Chi

Being active in the morning sets the children up for being energised for the rest of the day.

Be Careful near the road!

Road Safety Week!

We were very lucky to have Constable Allister come in and teach the Junior syndicate all about road safety. We practiced how to cross the road at a pedestrian crossing in front of our classroom first before we went out onto the road and crossed the real one.

This is what we learnt;

Monday - crossing the road

Tuesday - sneaky driveways

Wednesday - dangerous car parks

Thursday - Road signs

Friday - Safe helmets and seat belts

The children had so much fun on Friday as they were allowed to bring their 'wheels' (bike, scooter etc).

Coding

Room 7 have been learning about unplugged coding with a lady called Julia. For this activity we had to give our 'robot' instructions to get to the elephant without running into the hippo. We were only allowed to give simple instructions such as 1 step forward or turn left/right. The children took turns at listening and following instructions. We had a lot of fun!

Brushing our Teeth

Lucy Modelling

Jessie Modelling

On Monday the 1st of April, Room 1 had 'forgotten' how to brush their teeth. It was Room 7's mission to write instructions on how to brush our teeth. Lucy modeled the instructions to Room 7, which was successful and then after we had written our instructions we went to Room 1 and read them aloud to the senior children to see if they could follow the instructions to brush their teeth. Jessie was the senior model and she also successfully brushed her teeth using our instructions.

Chickens

Sarah has little chickens at her house and she very kindly brought them in so that everyone could have a hold. They were so soft. The children were very gentle and nurturing to the chickens.

See the link below to check if your child had a hold.

Rainbow Science

What order should we put our Rainbow bottles in to make a rainbow effect?

"Wow! there is a Rainbow in our sink!"

'Density'

'Tip out' ' Light'

'Fill up' 'Dark'

We took turns to add a colour to the little glass bottle. We had to discuss how much we would add and what the amount did to the shade and density in the bottle. If we had too much, we needed to tip some out and if there wasn't enough colour we had to add some more.

Rocky Shore Trip


On the 28th of February the whole of Tauwhare school, traveled by bus, out to Raglan. We went to Whale bay and looked at the sea creatures that were nestled in and around the rocks.

We found Star fish, Crabs of all sizes and colours, Sea Weed and lots of other sea creatures.

It was such an enjoyable day and the children gained a lot from this experience.
