Talking to Bat Man

The Kiwifruits group have read an Interview by Dr Colin O'Donnell. As part of their activity the children had to write and record an interview. Here is Flynlay and Martin's interview that they have recorded using an iPad. This article was in the School Journal Level 2, April 2013. You can find our activity here in our site.

Tavake's Game Animation

This term the children had to design and create their own game. They had to plan their backgrounds and their characters. They also had to think about the purpose of their game and what the player had to do. Here is Tavake's game. He wrote his own voice-over and didn't need much help putting this together. Well done Tavake!

Basketball in Term 2

For the past 9 weeks, our maths class have been very fortunate to have two coaches: Vinnie and Shanice from Auckland Basketball, come and coach us. They have been teaching us skills: passing, catching, stop jump, dribbling the ball, guarding the ball and lots more. We got to play heaps of games like: Golden Child and 3 on 3 and so forth. We just wanted to say a huge "THANK YOU" to our coaches and to Miss Va'afusuaga for organising this for us.

Wheels Day!!

Last week on Friday 26th June, our school had Wheels Day and Wacky Hair Day. Here are some photos and footage of our children enjoying having wheels at school. Even the teachers had a go with wheels too. It was heaps of fun! All the money raised by our school is going to be donated to the schools in Dunedin that were affected by the recent floods.
