We are hoping for sunny weather on Monday.

This afternoon we practiced running around our cross country course.
Some of our Kauri buddies ran with us.

Where is the sun at night?

Before our visit today we thought about this question and shared what we were thinking.
I wonder if anyone has something else to say about our question after our visit today?

Visit to the Carter Observatory on PhotoPeach

Monday, 27 April 2015


We have our visit to the Carter Observatory tomorrow.
We leave at 11:00am and return to school at 3:00pm.
We will eat our morning tea at school.
We will eat our lunch at the observatory.
I wonder what you are wondering about day and night?


We have a Field of Remembrance outside the office.
For art on Friday we made poppies.
We put them together to make a wreath. 
We hope you like it when you see it in Rata.  

Poppy Poppy
Poppy, poppy what do you say?
Remember me on Anzac Day.
Poppy, poppy what do you tell?
That many soldiers in battle fell.
Poppy, poppy what should we know?
That peace on earth should grow, grow, grow.

Rata Swimming Sports

 Rata Swimming Sports  at the Tawa pool were lots of fun.
We did two races each.

Swimming Fun! on PhotoPeach

Welcome Back!

Term Two will be another fun time of learning and sharing.

This week it has been great to see all our friends in Rata Rua and discover what we were busy doing during our term holiday.
Visit our class library and read the book we wrote and illustrated to find out more....

On Wednesday the new playground was officially opened by Mr. Smith and Mr. Kairua.

A big thank you to the Home and School for all your fundraising and hard work.

We told a buddy what we liked most about swimming in the school pool.
We told each other what we were proud of.
We hope you enjoy our stories.
I am doing rocket arms.

I am like a rocket. It is fun.

I am blowing bubbles in the water with Viraj and I am putting my head under the water.

I am making bubbles.

I like taking my goggles off in the water. I like to jump up in the water. I love to jump. It is very funny.

I am on my back by myself.

I like kicking on my back myself.
