Have a wonderful holiday break!

It has been a very long but very fun Term 1.  
I can't believe that it has come to an end.  
I want to wish the Hihi class a wonderful and safe holiday break and I look forward to seeing you all in 
Term 2!

Lest we forget!

On our last day of term our entire school gathered together to make poppies in remembrance of our ANZAC heroes.

Our challenge was to make the tallest poppy possible using only 20 sheets of newspaper, 4 sheets of red paper, one sheet of black paper, string, sellotape and scissors.

The results were creative, stunning and it was very special seeing our poppies standing tall in the school gymnasium.  

We all developed our leadership skills.  We learned to effectively work together towards a common goal by communicating clearly as well as diplomatically.  

It was a fun challenge and the poppy heads have been displayed in the hallway at school.  Please pop in and check them out!



We certainly missed our Year 4, 5 and 6 friends when they went to camp but we were determined not to miss out on the fun!  
On Friday 29th March we had our very own MINI-CAMP here at school.  
The weather was not on our friend so we pitched our tents inside.  We made pikelet batter and Mr D cooked them on the BBQ for us.  They were delicious!  
We then had our friends teach us some hand games and we sang camp songs.  
It was a fantastic day!

It's picnic time for Teddy Bears!

Today's Teddy Bear picnic was fantastic fun!  
The school was over-run with fluffy, cuddly friends.....
and there were lots of soft toys too!

Our teddies had a shared morning tea, they played outside and they even did some school work. 

At the recent school council meeting the students decided that the proceeds raised from the mufti day should go to the City Mission to support the homeless in our community.  Lots of money was raised for this important cause.  A big thank you to everyone for their support.

Have a look at some of the gorgeous Teddy Bear friends in the Hihi class today!

Dad's Day (and family day)

Beautiful singing welcomed our Dad's and families into school this morning.  
We then showed our Dad's some of the fun we have in a day.  
We played with feathers, fly swats, ping pong balls and our parachute.  

A huge thank you to all for being a part of such a wonderful day.  Your children LOVED sharing their classroom with you and we were all so happy to see you!  
Thank you!

Self-portraits NOT Selfies!

In Art we have been investigating facial proportions and experimenting with pencil sketches, crayon drawing and ipad art.  

Have a look at us creating our self-portraits on the ipads!
