Being little scientists!

Today Clara brought in some beautiful peacock feathers to look at. She found them at Staglands when she was visiting there. Our shared big book this week is all about a peacock getting a job on the farm. Today we observed the peacock feathers ( looked closely) and then we wrote about the feathers. Here we are looking closely with the magnifying glasses. Thanks Clara for bringing along your special feathers.

Athletics Day - Rebecca's Story.

Dear Dad and Jarred,
I went to Massey for Athletics Day. I was so clever at high jump and I jumped over the bar. My favourite part was long jump because I thought it was extremely exciting to jump in the sandpit!
From Rebecca.

Athletics Day

What an amazing day up at the Massey Athletics Track. The weather held out with only a few 'showers', enough for us to get to do all of our activities! The children loved having a go at all the events. It was so great to see such perseverance and positive attitudes all round. There was a good show of whakawhanaungatanga,(positive relationships), with lots of cheering on, support and friendship. A big thank you to our lovely Bright Bug parents/grandparents who came to help and/or support us. As always, we couldn't do it without you. Photos of the day to follow soon, but here are just a few pictures so far of the children's favourite event/s of the day.
