Football lessons every Friday

For the next four weeks, each class from Ngake Hub will go up to the top field for football lessons.
Two players from the Wellington United Football Club will come to teach us basic skills.
They are :- Guille from Argentina and Maika from Australia.

As a warm up we played four games.

Kei te pēhea koe? - How are you?

During our lesson with Rachel, the children in Ngake Hub were practising saying how they were feeling in Maori.

These children are feeling angry
          Kei te rīrī au.     


These children are feeling happy
Kei  te koa au

These children are feeling sad
Kei  te  pōuri au.  

These children are feeling hungry

Kei te hiakai au

Swimming Lessons come to an end

Today, we had our last swimming lesson for Term One.  We have really enjoyed our lessons and have learnt so much.  At first, some of us were a little nervous and lacked the confidence to try new things.  Now look at us!

We are floating and kicking with our flutter boards.

We are learning how to kick while holding on to the side of the pool.

Here we are learning about water safety.

It's 'thumbs up' for a great time in the pool.

Pack the Bus

Today, we celebrated our annual event -  'Pack the Bus.' We were all very excited to see Santa and his elves arrive in the big red and white bus.
We all walked down to the bus and placed our gifts inside and said good bye to Santa and wished him a Merry Christmas.  It was great hearing all the Christmas music and we were able to sing along to the songs.
We are always amazed at the generosity of our parents - THANK YOU so much.

Swimming Lessons

Today we had our second swimming lesson in our new heated swimming pool - and who wouldn't want to go swimming on such a beautiful day!  The water was lovely and warm and we had so much fun blowing bubbles, splashing about and floating on the flutter boards.  As you can see from the photos, we all enjoyed our lesson and look forward to getting into the water again next week.
