Rap-unzel Show

Today the school was treated to a show in the hall called 'Rap-unzel'.
Three actors from The Playhouse Theatre Company (based in Christchurch) entertained and delighted us with their hilarious show.

Unlike the traditional fairytale, Rap-unzel ends up being locked away in a tower by the devious Simon Cow (who also robs her of her singing voice). She ends up escaping and rapping with Rupert - a young rapper-prince.

We thought the show was brilliant!
Thanks to the PTA for funding this special event.

Gymnastics Fun

We started Gymnastics this week with Room 4 and are learning how to perform ...

* vault routines
* walking across a balance beam in different ways
* turns on the high beam
* forward and backward rolls safely
* running, jumping and landing safely

As our confidence grows, we are trying to push ourselves and try more challenging routines.

It's great to have so many parent helpers. Thanks for helping out!

Welcome Back - It''s Term 3

It's great to be back at school - even though it's a bit chilly!

To kick of this term, Room 3 have just started learning about the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
We started off our topic by brainstorming everything we knew (or thought we knew) about the Commonwealth Games.

Once we started sharing ideas, we realised there's a lot we DON'T know about the games. So next we got into groups and wrote questions that we want to find the answers to.

Over the next 2-3 weeks, we will be following the games and finding answers to our questions by reading books, researching information on the internet and by watching some of the sports action!

Spreading the Word About Plastic Pollution

Yesterday Room 3 children braved the cold, and distributed pamplets around Halcombe. (And we picked up litter on the way).

We were shocked to learn that plastic can take up to 1000 years to break down! A lot of plastic ends up in waterways which flow to the oceans. Thousands of sea birds and marine life are killed every year by getting caught in plastic or eating it.

We put these facts into a pamplet and gave suggestions of how to re-use plastic bags.
