Running cheek to cheek

Last week Declan from Kelly Sports took us for our first session of Run, Jump, Throw. Even though it was raining and we couldn't run outside, we improved our running style by practising indoors.

Growing our ideas about plants

What a beautiful day for our trip to Auckland Botanic Gardens! The sun was shining and the cherry blossom certainly let us know that spring has sprung! We will share what we saw and learnt about the different plants on our blogs over the next few days.

Back in Room 10!

Now that the senior block at Ruapotaka has been reopened, we are excited to have returned to Room 10 to find our usual desks and things.  Alex is pleased to be reunited with her glasses which have been in her desk since 6th September!  It is fantastic to see how much our garden has grown while we were away too!

In the holidays - by Alex

In the holidays I went to the library and we had a booklet but you have to finish the activities. If you get 9 stamps, you get a prize. The prize was to take a DVD home for free and I had fun at the library.

My imaginary creature - by Saluselo

I was chosen to represent Room 10 at Ruapotaka's Poetry Recital last Friday.  After reading the nonsense poem, Scroobious Pip, by Edward Lear, I created my own imaginary creature and here is my poem about him.

The Ning Nang Nong - by Leanah

I was chosen to represent Room 10 at Ruapotaka's Poetry Recital on Friday. After reading some nonsense poems by Edward Lear and Spike Milligan, I decided to learn The Ning Nang Nong by Spike Milligan for the poetry recital. It is a bit of a tongue-twister!
