Run Bike Run

The Kauri team had an awesome day at Halswell Domain today. Room 12 did so well at managing themselves, even in the overwhelming heat - Great job Room 12!!! It was awesome to see everyone getting involved and doing their best! We even had some children earn placings! 

Congratulations to Zoe who came first in the Year 4 girls race and Carter B who came first, Carter W who came second and Andre who came third in the Year 4 boys race! Awesome work! 

Week 7 in Room 12

We have had a busy week in Room 12! 

On Wednesday we went down to the hall and voted for the flag we would like to represent New Zealand. The overall winner was... The current flag! It will be interesting to see the results of the real flag referendum!

We also started our topic of Healthy Choices, we did a brainstorm as a class. Why do we need food? Where does food come from? What are the roles played in the different areas? 

And of course we did some literacy and maths!

Art with Ms MacKenzie

Today we have been working on our 'My Whanau' art with Ms Mackenzie. The different koru represent all of our family members. We have used pastels to colour these and we have been blending the colours together.

Seed Collecting and Chickens

This week we went into the food forest with Mr McAven and the year 8s to help them collect seeds. The seeds are found in all the dead flowers. We will be replanting these later on in the year.

We also started our competition to name our 6 chickens. There were some very creative choices! The names will be announced at the assembly we are hosting with Room 13 on Monday.
