Harold & the Life Ed caravan

Today Room 15 had our first visit to Harold in the Life Education caravan.  We really enjoyed spending time with Lynn and learning about which foods were healthy for our body.  Harold had a special alien friend who we met for the first time today.

We can't wait for our second visit with Harold in just over a week.

Welcome to Term 3

It was great to see everyone back in Room 15 today and we had fun at the Immersion Assembly.  This term we will be learning about the Olympics, seeing what happens in Rio as well as exploring some of the history of the Olympics.

Towards the end of the term, Room 15 will be competing with other classes in Team 3 in a quiz competition to see how much we have learnt.  

Also this term, we will be filming for the Film Festival, training for and competing in the Cross Country as well as enjoying some lessons with Harold the Giraffe in the Life Education Caravan.  We are also looking forward to learning the poi and rakau with Whaea Saff during our Te Reo Maori lessons.  Today she introduced us to this and we are all looking forward to getting started next week.

What a fun term of learning we have - we look forward to sharing some of the highlights with our blog readers.

Exploring the Art Gallery

Today it was Room 15's turn to explore the Art Gallery.  The Pt England School Hall has been transformed, with lights and music adding to the ambience of our gallery.  We explored the gallery with our friends from Room 8.  We really enjoyed seeing our art displayed, sharing it with our buddy from Room 8 and seeing what they, and the rest of the school had presented.  Mr J did an amazing job in creating the gallery!  Check out a few images from our visit today:
