Each Friday afternoon this term we are playing a variety of traditional board games!  The aim of the game-excuse the pun is cooperation, team work and turn taking, with a little fun mixed in. What a great afternoon!  What’s your favourite board game at home?

Today Mamaku Hub had a fantastic afternoon in the Hall with a WestaMaths type competition of problem solving.  We had 20 teams of 4 people in each team testing our maths brains. What a fun afternoon!!  Big thanks to Miss Power from Totara Hub for organising this afternoon, it was awesome!!

Respecting Our Environment

Over this term we have had a  major focus in our values on showing respect.  Respect to Self, Respect to Others and Respect for our Environment.  Over the past 2 weeks we have been focused on how we can show respect for our environment.  Mrs O challenged us to produce a short video clip demonstrating how we can show respect for ours.  We accepted the challenge and together with M2 we produced this blockbuster production!  We're so impressed with how it turned out! 
We use an app called Clips to film it - super easy - give it a try.

Raft Making - The Cay

As part of our novel study on The Cay by Theodore Taylor we decided to build rafts as Phillip and Timothy had been adrift at sea on the Caribbean.  For us to be successful at this activity we sat together and co-constructed a success criteria together so that we were all working towards the same goals.  Wow - what a hugely fantastic morning - so much planning, discussion, risk taking and re modelling!  And the best part of it was that they all floated!  Super exciting!  Well done M1 Literacy - you were amazing!!!
