We have enjoyed celebrating both Ava and Louie's 6th Birthday recently in Room 2/3. Happy Birthday korua! Thank you Louie and Sophie for the yummy cake.

Responsibility ~ Kawenga

Today we learnt about how to show Kawenga in the School Environment by being in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing (being ready to learn).

We thought about:
-       Staying in bounds
-       Using words to solve problems
-       Thinking about what I’m doing and being organised so that I’m ready to learn
-       Giving a great learning message and listening to all adults

Check out some of our ideas:
"Give 5" - Marlon
"Share" - Ava
"Don't tackle" - Rome
"Listen to teachers" - Valentine and Mahlee
"Don't play at mat time" - Edward
" Be kind to plants" - Charlotte
"Be safe. Stay in bounds"- Izzy
"Hands and feet to yourself" - Tom
"Be kind to your friends" - Jessica
"Be in the right place at the right time" - Saoirse
"Don't whisper when the teacher is talking" - Louie
