We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day for Athletics day out at Rakaia. Thanks to all the parents who joined us, I hope you enjoyed your day too!

This week's big book was 'Fantail, Fantail' by Margaret Mahy. This week we made our own book about other food the fantail may like.
Mufti Day TOMORROW (Thursday 10th May)
We are holding a mufti (free dress) day tomorrow to support Ronald McDonald House South Island. A Gold Coin Donation for each child will be collected on the day and donated to Ronald McDonald House.
This afternoon we went on a bus to the Ayers' Farm. We visited their horses Tussock, Peaches and Bella. We got to pat, feed and brush the horses. We had lots of conversations about the horses, the things we saw, what they felt like and what they needed to be looked after properly. Tomorrow we will write about our first farm experience for the term. Below are some of the many photos we took.
Here is a short video of the memory verse Room 1 has been learning for the first 4 weeks of the term. We have actions that help us to remember the verse.
These past two weeks have been a bit of a blur for Mrs Coe and she is very grateful to Mrs Hill coming in to teach while she was away.
Here are a couple of snippets of the past two weeks...
