Science Roadshow

On Thursday LZ1 went to Albany Junior High for the Science Roadshow. This was a great introduction to our science focus this term.
We watched weird and wonderful, thought provoking experiments, and participated in lots of hands on discovery.

Ki o Rahi

With the term in full swing we have been doing all sorts of fun activities. As well as training hard for cross country and mapping how far we have run on our maps, we have learnt how to play the traditional maori game of Ki o rahi. It is a fun game that can be played by teams of anything from 5 or 6 players to up to 20 players in a team.  While the game is ancient - and has a legend that accompanies it - parts of the game have much in common with rippa, cricket, rugby, and netball.

Asia Experience morning

Orewa Primary Asia Experience morning

On Tuesday morning, before the Share the Learning conferences, years 5 & 6 travelled to Orewa Primary for the extension to our Mandarin and Japanese language learning. We had the opportunity to experience ten different Asian experiences led by Orewa College students.

Among others, we tried Japanese tea, painted Chinese calligraphy, drew Japanese anime, watched and acted out puppet theatre, had a chop sticks race and did some martial arts.

It was a great experience.
