Duffy Awards

On Monday we had two special Duffy role models. They came to talk to us about reading books. Once they introduced themselves they started talking about how they were interested in reading. One of the role models said his teacher told him that he should read books about sports because he loved playing it.   That's how he got involved in big events. Then at the end specific people were called up to receive their Duffy books from the two Duffy role models. After that we sang the Duffy song.

The last day of Volley ball

Last day of volley ball. 
This Tuesday was the last day of our volley ball lesson. We had a lot of fun.

Since it was the last day, Renee gave us a choice. We could either do girls vs boys, elimination or tournament so we selected all  of them.

First we started with elimination. It was fun until I got eliminated. Then we played tournament and then, girls vs boys. My favourite part about girls vs boys is when we won but, when it came to the end we had to say our goodbyes to coach Renee.

When we are skipping we have to start off with a warm up. Once we've finished that, we get into our
skipping groups. When we practice our first display we practice it three times to get it right. After we have finished deciding what the next display is going to be we add all the items together to make a skipping display. Once we have learnt the routine we are ready for the finals.

When we've practice all the skipping moves we show our demonstration to the other groups, but when it's the finals the whole school will be watching, including the parents.

Volley Ball

Every Tuesday we have volley ball practice. A lady named Renee started teaching us the easy and simple moves. First we had to find a partner to practice with.

When we finished practicing we headed over to the net and started using the techniques we've learnt. After a few games we sadly had to say goodbye to coach Renne. Luckily enough we will see her next Tuesday.

On Wednesday we had a few special visitors. Once the whole school was in the  multipurpose room, we called out the visitors. When they came out they were dressed in Maori costumes and started dancing. After they stopped they had said they were here to tell us a story about Maori myths and legends.

 While they're telling the story they were also acting. My favorite part that I liked, is when they called up two students and one teacher to show us how to use a Taiaha, but first a man called Lucky had to demonstrate. It was really funny because they didn't know the moves.

Sadly the performance was coming to the end. They closed off with us asking questions, then we said our goodbyes.

basket Weaving


Every Friday, we work on our basket weaving.

First, we had to watch a video that shows us how to make it. Then, once we've finished watching it, we begin. You need a lot of resources such, as a ruler, paper, glue and scissors. When we've finished we hand it in. After that we move on to our next activity. The next activity is easier, we have to make a paper heart and design a beautiful weaved pattern on to it just like the first one.

My Duffy Award

On Monday we had Syndicate Assembly. When Mrs Vickers finished speaking she called out the teachers for the names of people who had been caught being good. Once the people had
stood up in front of the whole school each person had received a book from Mrs Vickers. I chose a book called Alife Bloom. I've been chosen for moving up a Reading level when I had my reading test. I haven't read it yet but it looks very Interesting to me.
