Easter greetings to you all!

With Easter only days away we have been very creative with Easter activities.

We put our thumbs in paint and made a print on some cardboard then when it was dry we turned out thumb prints into Easter rabbits and chickens.

Happy Easter from me

and me...

Yesterday we started with a plain envelope and turned it into a rabbit! We think that our parents are going to be very impressed when they see our Easter art.

We have been thinking about what Easter means to us.

Some of us have been thinking about the Easter message while others are  waiting for Easter Bunny to come and visit.

Gabby told us that Easter is a time to be with family and Luke U said it isn't all about chocolate.
Luke B thought it was a time to have a rest!!

To everyone out there.....whatever you are doing this Easter, have fun and stay safe.

Kia Ora

Greetings everyone from a chilly Christchurch. We are hoping that this weather is going to improve as we have been enjoying our lovely sunny days!!!!

Where The Wild Things Are....have you read this book?
Gayle read it to us this week then we had to choose a page and act it out!
It was all part of our 'Give It A Go' week.

Actually it was quite a hard  thing to do acting out in front of the team.

Can you make rhythm?

We have been practising all term and now we are getting experts at it....well we think we are!

We all had to make a rhythm with the rakau sticks and then everyone had to repeat what we had made.

You had to listen REALLY hard so that you could play back the rhythm that had been made.

An afternoon of art.....we had black paper and chalk, coloured rice and glue and pva dripping to choose from.

For the coloured rice we made a pattern on cardboard, filled the shape with glue and then covered the glue with the coloured rice.

What do you think?

We were very pleased with what we had achieved.

Enjoy your weekend....fingers crossed for some sun!!!

Photos of the birthday boy and some dance moves...

Look at these dance moves.....
Watching the songs from Frozen

Following Luke in getting the beat right for We Will We Will Rock You.
This was a really cool song.

Aaron's dance moves

Happy Birthday Aaron!!
We celebrated by making pancakes...his choice of baking for this term...and ice-cream.

Week 6

We are all excited to announce that we have new team member!
A huge welcome to Meagan!

We just love that smile of yours Meagan!!

It has been interesting listening to the different music choices that we all have.

We were all asked to think about our favourite song so that we could all enjoy listening to one anthers music.

We Will We Will Rock You was Luke B's choice.
We watched Queen playing it on Youtube then we all clapped and stamped our feet to the beat. We thought that the instruments played in the song were drums and different types of guitars.

Ryan chose a song from the movie Frozen. He loves this song as it is his favourite and his family love it too.
We found it quite hard to dance to.

Aaron's choice was the music from Five Nights At Freddys.  Some of us had never heard that music before. Aaron was fantastic at dancing to the music but others of us found it quite difficult.

Meagan chose Your Lips Are Moving by Meagan Trainer.
Gabby Nad Meagan watches the video and followed the dance moves to the music…the boys just watched!!!

Our In The Woods by Taylor Swift was Gabb'ys choice.
It was a quiet song that was slow in tempo at times.  Gabby knew most of the words.

Luke loves Lego so his choice was Everything Is Awesome. It is from the Lego Movie.
We all thought it was very hard to dance to but Luke managed some great moves very enthusiastically.

Lush Life by Zara Larsen was Aieshar's choice.
It was very hard to dance so we just listened to the music.
Aieshar, Meagan and Gabby knew some of the words.

We do have photos but we are having trouble downloading them so will put them in a separate blog.

Enjoy your weekend…..we aren't looking forward to the temperatures dropping. We love this warm weather!!!
