Week 6 term 2

At last speeches are done and dusted and we can focus on other writing activities. The speech finals were held on Wednesday with Katelyn representing Room 3. Unfortunately,  she was ill along with a number of other students and did not make it. Eva from Room 2 will represent Waiau Pa School at the Franklin Speechmakers competition in week 7, competing against the best from other Franklin schools.

I have never seen such a large number of children away with winter ills and chills. My first thought was that families were extending their long Queens Birthday weekend w but some children have been off all week. It's that time of year.

We commenced our 2nd option classes for our Natural Disasters topic this week.

In PE we started coaching sessions with Caleb from Franklin Basketball. The students are very enthusiastic.

We also learnt some science , looking at chemical reations with copper coins, testing which liquids clean them and finding ou t why the Statue of Liberty is green.

This week Ben was our Star of the Week, Sadie was our Team Player of the week for being such a reliable monitor and Kathleen topped the class in Mathletics.

Hope to see the class back to full strength after the weekend.
