We have a different teacher on Wednesdays & Thursdays (Mrs Ollerenshaw) She does P.E. & Art with us. We do this very fun homework called Current Events it involves a group of three. We have 10 questions which have happened in the previous week World-Wide. We start on Monday and mark on Friday. We do Ukulele as a class, we already know how to play C, F, G7 and AM. We've got a lot of tech. We have 3 purple mini ipads, 4 blue mini ipads, 4 normal sized ipads, 1 silver Mac books, 2 mini chrome books and 5 white Mac books. So that's that. by Dylan and Adam.

Sponsored Runs

In the senior syndicate we have been running for Nepal. Every lap we complete earns some money or we get paid a total amount $$$$ for the whole week. This also helps to boost our fitness and give us an incentive.

Morning Tea for Nepal

Staff Morning Tea

On the 26th May we held a staff morning tea to raise money for Nepal because of their recent earthquakes.  Sam C came up with the idea and Mrs Gribben, Mrs Brown, Mrs Ollerenshaw, Sam C, Michael B, Adam D and Alyssa brought along baking and sandwiches were kindly donated by the Wakari Dairy, thanks to Ange L for organising that! There were lots of cakes, sandwiches, muffins and cupcakes and chocolate brownies. It seems that the staff liked it. After that the seniors got leftovers. It was tasty!

Clay Sculpting

On Thursdays we have been learning about clay sculpting. We made Coil pots, they were a bit tricky as well.

  1. Get a plate of water with a sponge.
  2. Unfired clay
  3. Two ice block sticks and three long toothpicks.   
     1.  Get a bit of clay and start rolling it.
     2. Dab your finger on the sponge and gently rub the side of the clay and twirl it up as big as you              want for the bottom.
     3. After you have done the bottom, dab your finger on the sponge again and gently rub the top of           the clay. Keep on building it up.
    4. When you get to the top, join it together.
     5. Roll a big ball of clay then squish it down to make a lid.

Class Book

My Mums Glasses

Recently Mrs. Gribben's glasses went missing. We got them back luckily, and then we decided we would like to write a book about what the glasses may have seen during the event it is called "My Mum's Glasses". We are illustrating the book by drawing pictures and gluing our pictures on to the images Mrs Gribben took. We have a few kids on each character. We are going to sell it to make money for our Nepal Fundraiser for their recent earthquake.
