First Assembly for Term 4

We had a great start for the last term of school and spent all week preparing for our class assembly.
Our first item was a beautiful song called "Space in between" sung by Tunisia and Tahlya, they only had a few practises but we were so proud of their confident cheering, the crowd was so supportive of the girls too.



We decided to read one of Roald Dahl's revolting rhymes together as a class.  Whaea Sally grouped us together and gave each group a character.  Together, the group had to read their parts of the revolting rhyme, it was very tricky at first, but we managed to read the whole rhyme together by Assembly day.  Our next steps are to work on volume and projecting our voices out into the crowd.



Razor, Karisa, Treziah and Angel stood before the school and read out some of their "I am" poems that we created last Term.  Some of the teachers gave them some lovely feedback about their poems and Whaea Sally was proud of them for sharing their work.  Here is what their "I am" poems look like in class.




And last but not least we shared with the school our top 4 rules for surviving Room 2.  We thought that it would be a good idea for next years students to know the ins and outs of Room 2 and together we put together this video.  We had so much fun making this movie together, and we were so glad the rest of the school enjoyed it too.  



Tell us what your favourite rule was and leave it in the comments below.

Cross Country 2017

video

We had our whole school cross country at the United Kawakawa rugby field on Thursday and what a day it was.  We were lucky enough to travel to there by train and boy was it noisy.  The train was filled with singing and Whaea Sally strumming on the guitar, excited chatter among friends, not to mention the squeals from some of the students who has never been on the train before.

Well done to all our students who have made it to the SBOI inter school cross country:
Deeny, Tahlya, Angel, Mia, Vaughan, Dayton, LJ, Razor, Nathan and Daniel.

Our School Assembly


10 o'clock we had our school assembly at the school hall.  The whole school came to our class assembly, they were very noisy when they came into the school hall.
Once everybody was quiet, I welcomed everybody to our assembly and said "Please stand for the for the National Anthem."
We did heaps of acts and asked if all the syndicate teachers could present their certificates.  It was a long but fun assembly and I can't wait to do it again.

Waste Busters!

On Tuesday, we had a very special visitor from the Zero Waste Education.  Her name was Anouk and she came to talk to us all about recycling.  We learnt a lot of interesting facts like what aluminium was made from, what happens to rubbish once it gets to landfill.  We even shared with Anouk some of the facts that we knew from our plastic fantastic inquiry.  We did lots of hands on activities as well.  Have a look at our video to see what we did.

Payton and the Goodhue award.


As we come to the end of another term, Payton had a real good reason to smile today.
She was awarded the Goodhue trophy, this is awarded to students who show integrity and honesty throughout the term.  Well done Payton! We are all very proud of you.

Whakatau Wairua - Te Hokinga Mai


This week Kawakawa Primary School hosted a very special occasion in our Marae Tumanako.
On Thursday and Friday whanau from around the community came with photos of their loved ones to hang on the wall of our whare nui.  These photos are of our beloved past pupils and staff members of the school who have passed away, one of them being Kailah's nanny.  We celebrated this special occasion with waiata, karakia, hangi and even some yummy steam pudding.  Thank you to all our whanau who brought their beautiful photos for our Marae.
