proofread and sign off.
Today we were learning to be careful of what we post by saying only kind, positive and friendly words to others especially when we comment online. we can do this by showing Tika, Pono and Aroha towards other and showing integrity to the person.
Yesterday after morning tea we went to Mr Bell under the canopy because we were having ki o rahi games on the field. The coaches name was Trey and he was also the ref for the day. The teams were kauri, totara, Rimu and Rata. Kauri is green , Rimu is blue , totara is yellow and Rata is red. After that they told us the winners who were kauri. I enjoyed playing outside with my friends and the other children from the bigger classes.
Today we were learning about digital foot prints .
Last Thursday I was so excited! Room 6 students were given ANZAC biscuits to look at, feel and to eat later. In world war 1 in 1915 ANZAC biscuits were made for the men and women who went to war. The ANZAC biscuit felt hard like a rock but it was not cold. It looked like a rough moon rock and it tasted like coconut and oats.
Last Friday when I woke up I was so excited! I knew it was St Patrick’s day. So I jumped out of my bed. Once we got to school I said to my friend, “it’s St Patrick’s day!” So we did sports after Mass and digging up the Time Capsule from 25 years ago. The games we played were gumboot toss, scatter ball, T ball, shooting ball and hoops, rock paper scissors. We had fun playing in our teams.
On Sunday we had a big mass celebration with three priests. There was beautiful singing and dancing. After Mass everyone went to the hall we sang three songs for the guests and then we had lunch. It was an amazing celebration.
