Hi everyone. This year we have started the PB4L (Positive Behaviour for Learning) contract. The PB4L team would really appreciate it if you followed this link to their blog and complete the survey. Teaching staff have already done it and they are now looking for community voice. It is super quick so please take a couple of minutes and take part. Thanks

Hockey Coaching

Hockey today was loads of fun! Room 1 and 3 worked together to develop our hockey skills through some fun games. Dribbling a hockey ball is challenging. Lucky that challenging activities help our brains grow!

Buddy Reading

Today we invited 17 students from our buddy class Kowhai to come over so we could reread our guided reading book. They helped us with any tricky words. It is really good to practise our reading with a buddy! Thanks Kowhai!

Today we looked at what shoes we wear in Pohutukawa. We had a chat about different features on shoes and then we made up five categories! We thought Velcro would be the most popular and we were right!!

Food for Thought

Today we had our first session with Reta. We had to organise food into everyday and sometimes food groups. Then we went and moved our bodies to help us be healthy! On Monday we talked about what a great lunch is and tried some yoga. Healthy body, healthy mind!

Assembly Item Term 1

Here is the video from our assembly item today.  Hopefully this one is easier to hear!  There are louder bits and quieter ones so be ready to change the volume.

The class came up with what they wanted to talk about and what they would say.  They did really well organising their ideas and information.

We have learnt we really do need to be quiet in the back ground when recording and speak loudly and clearly for the camera.

Miss Fitchett has learnt to test it in the hall herself before the big day!

We learn from our mistakes!
