All the students presented their speeches on Monday and Tuesday. they covered a wide range of topics from lettering, smoking, wearing shoes and places to visit. Our Syndicate final is on Friday and each class is submitting 3-4 candidates.
We enjoyed a great day out at Auckland Musem on Wednesday. We spent some time in the Volcano exhibition and particularly enjoyed the earthquake simulation. Afterwards we had time to explore other areas. The boys were especially interested in the war section with nits Spitfire airplan, weaponry and war memorabilia. We checked out the dinosaurs and the native trees, animals and birds section before heading downstairs to look through the meeting house where weavers were restoring tukutuku panels.
At one o'clock we had our lunch on the steps in the sunshine before heading back to school.
Thanks to the wonderful parents who cam along to help supervise groups.
We had our Rimu speech finals on Friday with Leone, Katelyn, Harry and Stella presenting their speeches again. Well done to Katelyn who will now go forward to the school finals on Wednesday next week.
We also did a writing sample, a persuasive letter using all the writing skills we had learnt as we wrote our speeches.
