Easter Time

The children are all excited about the Easter Bunny coming soon. 

Rm 1 children are making their Easter baskets in the hope of an egg appearing in them before 3 o’clock.

Yeah, their wishes came true.

 Rms 3 and 4 are very proud of their crazy  Easter eggs they made and showed them in assembly.

A great big thank you to Ursula’s Mum and big sister Francesca for helping the children to make hot cross buns.

Waiting for the dough to rise

Looking good !!!!!

Hope there's enough for everyone?

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.
