The holidays have arrived!

It has been a strange week in the Afternoon Programme with four of the children away on camp.
We have missed them.

On Monday we all went to MacDonalds as a big thank you to our amazing SUPERSTARS for all their hard work during the term and the wonderful concert that they put on.

To finish off our 'Spring' topic we went on a Spring walk to see what we could find.

Some peoples gardens were full of beautiful Spring flowers, so now we know what azaleas, matchheads,blossom, magnolias,daffodils,tulips,freesias and rhododendrons look like.

Thanks Katelyn for lifting everyone up so that they could touch the blossom!
Spring is here!

We loved the way this lamp post had been decorated.

 We hope that you all have a safe holiday...have lots of fun.

See you all next term.

Take care.

Gayle, Rachel,Jacob, Luke,Aieshar,Katelyn,George,Jeremy and Rachel.

Congratulations Super Stars!!

A huge thank you to everyone who came to see our concert last night.

We were really sad that George was sick and wasn't able to come. We hope that he gets better quickly so that he can come back to school.

We did four items......they were Greedy Cat, Pukeko Stomp,Freeze and the Princess Song.

Greedy Cat 

Pukeko Stomp.

Some of us were just a wee bit nervous before the concert started,while others were VERY excited!!


The Princess song

After the concert was over everyone  enjoyed supper in Learning Support.

Thank you Super Stars....we are just so proud of you.
You were all amazing!!

Pukeko Week!

We have been very busy practising and preparing for for our concert next Thursday night.
If you would like to come and see us performing we would love to see you. The performance starts at 6.30pm and afterwards we are going to have supper.

Yesterday we used a sewing machine for the first time.
Some of us were very nervous at first  as it was a new experience .
We really had to concentrate really hard on what we were doing.

 Once we got the 'hang' of it we were on fire!!
It was hard work holding the material and working the pedal at the same time!

Gayle and Rachel thought that we were amazing....perhaps some of us might end up in the fashion industry!!!

We hope that you will come and see us on the 20th at 6.30 pm.

Spring has arrived!

Spring is finally here so we all went to Botanical Gardens to see the daffodils and blossom.

We took our lunch and then had a play at the playground before we went daffodil hunting.

George came and met us at the Gardens. It was great to see him as he has been away sick and we have missed him!

We all had fun climbing up the blossom tree.

We were amazed at how many daffodils there were at the Gardens...they were everywhere!
We enjoyed our afternoon out especially when it was such a lovely Spring day.
