week 3 term 3

We sent three teams from Rimu syndicate to the Franklin Schools netball competition on Tuesday. The boys were elated with their success in their pool and the girls' teams who faced pretty fierce competition had some wins though they were not placed. Thanks again to the wonderful mums who coached the teams and supervised, umpired and transported.

Room 3 enjoyed another session of gymnastics with Franklin Gymsports with some different apparatus.

The students are working on their last piece of artwork for Calf Club- Notans,  which ties in with our Geometry studies.They are enjoying learning the language of geometry and the properties of shapes.

My reading groups are enjoying their novel studies. I think they have been surprised as they are not, by their own admissions, the sort of books they would choose themselves- all novels by reputed authors.
We are focusing on descriptive writing and working in pairs to produce what I hope will be some amazing writing. Collaborative writing fosters discussion about best language and composition.

It was great to see all the imaginative hairstyles the students sported for Crazy Hair Day to raise money for Kidscan.

On Friday morning we all attended the NED show where a clever actress/magician/ balloon shaper/yo-yo girl entertained us and promoted the message that we can all be champions both at school and in our own lives.  The key to this was Never give up, Encourage others and Do your best always. These talks are funded by the sale of yo-yos so these will be available to buy during next week.

We shared our learning at the Rimu assembly on Friday- showing off our art work and presenting a Te Reo item on Maori greetings.

Certificates were awarded to Kathleen, Gino and Jayden. Samuel and Jak were awarded special Principal's awards along with a yo-yo  each for helping others.
Emily was our Star of the Week, Jak topped the class in Mathletics and Jesse was our Player of the Week for his perseverance and positive attitude.
