Learning Basketball With ABSL

 Our P.E. sessions this term have really made an impact with our students. Coaches Tania, Tai and Ra are helping out students to develop the basic skills necessary to participate in a game of Basketball. Although our school doesn't have the best equipment our coaches are making our learning fun and relevant to us.

Cloak Of Dreams

 Today in our Te Rito Toi sessions the children explored the idea of someone having their "Cloak Of Dreams" torn. Once we had discussed what the words "cloak" and "torn" meant we all contributed our own dreams to a new cloak. Here is the Room 7 Cloak Of Dreams.

Freeze Frame Time.


Another exciting task in our exploration of "The Emperor and The Magic Goose" was to put ourselves into the roles of members of the town where the main story takes place in this legend. As you can see, the children enjoy exploring this story through actions.
