A swimmer of the week!

Zoe won simmer of the week in her group today! She was a great listener and gave everything a go! Allan won a ribbon yesterday as well!

Transition Times

During a busy day in the classroom, Rata 4 children occasionally have times where they are expected to self-manage while other students finish their work. Here are some of the things got up to yesterday with their bit of free time!

Super MOOT!

MOOT (Managing Our Own Time) was a lot of fun last week, and great way for two of our new students to get comfortable in Rata block. Zoe and Alex did a great job of finding fun things to do! Photos of our newest friend--Josh--will be up soon! I know today will be just as fun!
Getting excited for MOOT with some silly faces!

More fun with Mr. Kairua

With Mr. Kairua, Rata Wha has been learning about ways to say hello, ask how a friend is doing, asking one, two, or a group of people to come here, parts of the body, and more! Here are some photos from our fabulous and fun te reo Maori lessons.
