Our Buddies

Today we spent some time with our Buddies to get to know them in preparation for our 1st event together - our school Try-athlon on Friday. We loved spending time with them and can't wait for our weekly Buddy sessions.

Tryathlon Reminder


A reminder that our school tryathlon is on Friday. Dust that bike off, pump up the tyres and check the gears and brakes. Please also check your helmet fits correctly.

Buddies will be alongside our younger children to help provide support and encouragement during this fun filled event.

We can't wait to have you supporting us from the sidelines on Friday.

Ooey, Gooey Slime

Today, as a follow up activity to our Reading, we all became scientists and made some slime.

Like any true scientist we had to be ready to adapt and change when some of our experiments didn't go to plan. Some of our mixtures were runny, some were lumpy but we agreed that they were all ooey, gooey, slippery and slimy.

What a lot of fun we have with our learning.

Our 1st Week

We were all excited to start back at school this week.....and what a fabulous first couple of days we had!

We welcomed 5 new friends into our class. We know that Alex, Leo, Tommy, Marty and William are going to love their time here at Upper Moutere School.

We went fishing for clues around the school to introduce our new friends to the different areas both outside and inside our class. We had fun getting to know them by playing lots of games and we enjoyed a cool dip in our pool each afternoon.



At the end of next week we have our 1st school tryathlon. We all have a special job to do this weekend. We are going to dust off our bikes, check the brakes, gears and make sure our tyres are pumped up ready for Friday. We can't wait!
