On September 3, Trevor from Auckland Transport came to our school and spoke to our parents on Home School Partnership evening about Travel Wise. He briefly spoke about some of the changes which is going to take place especially in front of our school road. He talked about the advantages of using seat belts, using car seats and so on. 

In addition to Travel Wise we had Cathlyn from Penrose Dental speaking about How we should look after our Teeth. She was really informative too. She also left a Dental Kit in our school for us children to learn more from.

Our Volcano in Class

Yesterday we did a volcano experiment in our class. First our teacher made a cone shape of the play dough. She then added enough baking soda in small cup which was placed in the centre of the play dough.

We all sat quietly and watched her.

Then she added some vinegar to the baking soda.

Eruka, there was this oozing out of bubbles which showed how the volcanoes erupt.

Mayor Len Brown at our School

This is our Auckland City's Mayor - Mr Len Brown. He came to our school on Thursday, 7th of August for Sod Turning Ceremony. 

Groundbreaking, also known as cutting, sod-cutting, turning the first sod or a sod-turning ceremony, is a traditional ceremony in many cultures that celebrates the first day of construction for a building or other project. Such ceremonies are often attended by dignitaries such as politicians and businessmen. The actual shovel or spade used during the actual groundbreaking is often a special ceremonial shovel meant to be saved for subsequent display. Commemorative information may be subsequently engraved on the shovel.

He was at our school from 9am till 10.30am. During the ceremony there were few speeches, songs and then the whole school went for Sod Ceremony next to the swimming pool. After the ceremony all the children were given lollies and balloons to mark this special day.

How we made Roti in class?

On Monday we learnt how to make Roti in class. Below is Popplet (planning) done by Riza-Dee. He is going to use these information to do his Procedural Writing. 

This is another Popplet done by Whaiora. The interesting thing about his Popplet (planning) is that he was away when we made the roti but he was so keen to Plan using Popplet so he went around asking few of his friends/ teacher and most importantly he looked at the photos in the ipad. So below is his Popplet:

Travel Wise Week (19/5 - 26/5, 2014)

This is our Travel Wise Week.

The theme of the week in 2014 is 'Tune in to road safety'. We're all human: we daydream, get side-tracked, run late and make mistakes. But on roads, distractions can be fatal. When using roads, we all need to tune in to road safety and give it our full attention - particularly if we're at the wheel, but also when we're cycling, walking, skating, running, you name it - to keep ourselves and others safe.

We're asking everyone to pledge to tune in to road safety - that means promising to do your best to keep focused on the task at hand, and never putting yourself and others in danger for the sake of a call, text or other activity that can wait.

During the Week we'll be appealing to drivers to turn off their phones, and to everyone to help protect themselves and others by not speaking on the phone to someone who's driving, and when out on foot or bicycle getting off the phone, taking out headphones and taking care to stay focused on the task at hand.

Auckland Zoo Videos

Last term when we went to the zoo, we saw lots of amazing animals. We shot these 2 videos - seals and crocodiles. WE enjoyed watching the seals as they were huge but still swam very fast. The crocodiles were not so big as we thought. Please enjoy the videos.
