What a wonderful day Arohanui had at the Vodafone Event Centre in Manukau. We danced and twirled. We swayed and jumped. We crept and crawled. It was a very busy day creating our own dances.
Room 2 practised hard to get their dance just right and students put in their best effort and overcome their stage fright to put on a show.
It took a lot of practice and here it is. Enjoy!!
This year there were two readings to choose from a reading from St Paul’s letters to the Philippians and a reading from the Book of Numbers. Each student worked hard to prepare their readings.
The reading needed to be clear, confident and reverent.
Our Arohanui winners were 1st Eden (R1A), 2nd Tateama (R3) and 3rd Angelin (R3). Well done to these three and to all who participated. Ka pai koutou.
In celebration of Book Week, Arohanui presented their poem “Saw My Teacher on a Saturday” by Dave Crawley at our Crazy Hair Day Assembly. What a fun week we’ve had focusing on poetry.
Many of us brushed, styled, coloured, dyed, plaited, wigged our hair to create some crazy styles.
Arohanui celebrated spending 100 Days at School! We missed our day to celebrate becoming 100 days smarter because we were in lockdown so we celebrated today in Level 2. What a cool day spent doing Mathematics.
We counted, we sorted, we planned, we grouped, we worked a lone and with others. It was a very busy day.
Wowza !!! What a great start back to school. We had a fun morning of Science with our Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT) educators.
In groups, we chose one of the recommended guidelines for keeping ourselves safe from Covid-19 and shared our ideas about an ‘invention’ we could create to help us. After much discussion we drew a design and planned out our idea. We thought about what it might look like if we built it.
Luckily, we had lots of ‘stuff’ to help us explore our ideas and create a model of our invention which we then shared with the class. Such fantastic ideas and inventions.
Room 2 is full of scientists ready to test out their ideas.
