It was a fun day with Miss Andrews today. Lots of effort went into making 3D shapes and finishing her time with us with lots of sparkles and treats. She will be missed by everyone in Room 1 and we wish her all the best for the rest of her studies.

Miss Andrews has created a wonderful display for ANZAC Day commemorations. Each child made a poppy for our class wreath which we took to the school assembly. After Anzac Day, the children wrote letters to a soldier which showed some of what they had learnt about the experiences of an Anzac soldier going to war.
It was exciting to be at assembly last week and see Mataatia Tuhakaraina presented with an award from the Bethlehem Lions for most improved swimmer. Mataatia was a joy to teach swimming. He was focussed and put lots of effort to learning and improving his swimming strokes, particularly freestyle. He moved from floating to having a smooth arm rotation and really good attempts at adding breathing. Awesome Mataatia.
On the last day of Term 1 Room 1 and Room 6 made pizzas and garlic bread using lots of produce from the summer garden including the enormous red onions and garlic. The tasty kai was demolished before the teachers could take photos, however here is a short video of our efforts. It was a lovely way to end the term.

Here is our first magisto movie made by some of the students. The movies are very short, however it allows the children to select a few photos from the day and put together a movie. Each pupil using magisto then teaches a classmate so that we can all make our own movies. Look out for more movies shortly.
