The Ballet

This week some lucky students from year 3 to year 8 got to attend the Royal New Zealand Ballet performance of Romeo and Juliet. The students were so excited to get on the bus and travel into town for the show.

We had a wonderful time at the show and the year 3 and 4 girls from Room 14 that went say it was an experience they won't forget anytime soon.

Stardome Trip

This term we have been learning about planet earth and beyond. As part of our inquiry team 3 had a trip to the stardome. We went by bus and spent half the day playing at the amazing playground and learning at the stardome. The trip was enjoyed by all and we learnt so much about our solar systems. We hope you enjoy our movie.

This week we had the lovely lady from NED come a visit us. She talked about the NED values of Never Give Up, Encourage Others and Do your best. We enjoyed watching her do tricks with her Yoyo and we love the message NED had to share with us.
As a result of this we had Room 16 to visit and we create NED masks with them. We were Role Models for them and we hope our friendships with our little buddies continue.

Space Adventure

This week the children of room 14 wrote about a space adventure. All their stories were very different. Here is Kiarah's wonderful story.

One day in space town there lived a woman and her name was Sam she didn’t have that  much money because she worked as a car fixer , she only got 50 dollars an hour just enough to  buy food  and pay rent each week. One day after fixing a car sam went home and she received a letter from the planet company and the letter said  “you have won  two tickets to go to any planet you  and your friend  choose!” Sam was so excited. She chose the friend that she wanted to go with and his name was Jack. After  one hour they packed a speaker,toothbrush, toothpaste, food, clothes and lots of water because they were saying in space for two days.  

The day after that  they went to the planet company and they got to go in a flying car, but first they  they had a good look at all the engines. Sam and  Jack looked at all of the ships and rockets. Jack asked Sam “ what are we going in i forgot ?” Sam said “we are going in a flying car!” After all of that they got into their astronaut suits and got into the flying car and set up the car and  off they went to  planet jupiter. Then something bad bad bad happened their engine  run out of  oil ,but the car was on top of jupiter.They didn’t  know how to get back home though. Luckily they saw some aliens that had some oil but they had to communicate Sam knew alien so it wasn’t a problem Sam asked them and the aliens said “yes”  they put some oil in the car and went to sleep. The next day they woke up and ate some food, had a boogie and got changed in their clothes then their suits after doing that they set off home and cooked some dinner after that Sam decided that Jack could move in with her Sam asked Jack if he wanted to move in with her and he said “yes.” After that they both went to bed, before going to bed sam shouted” i’m  going to be famous, but both of the were  famous. The next day they got a job as a astronaut, they flew all around the solar system every day and night.
