Museum Trip

Anzac Museum Trip on PhotoPeach

Cricket Opportunity

Would you like to go to the Scotland vs Bangladesh cricket game at Saxton Oval on Thursday?
If so bring $5.00 along on Monday for a ticket.  We have a limited number of tickets available - maybe you could bring along mum or dad as a parent helper.  This is a fabulous opportunity to support two teams competing at the Cricket World Cup here in Nelson.  

An email was sent home on Friday advising parents.  You will need to wear your PE gear and bring lunch, snack, water bottle, sunscreen,  and we will allow you to bring $5.00 spending money. We leave school at 9.30am and will walk down and return to school after the first innings about 2.00pm.  You will be given a pass out if you want to return after school.  

Sounds lots of fun!   



Who is going to win?

Hannah and the fish tanks

Hannah has been amazingly busy cleaning the fish tanks, making cookies and cupcakes to raise money to buy more fish and accessories for the tanks, feeding the fish and finding out about what fish get on with each other.

The Hoiho Penguin

This week we are going to undertake some research on the Hoiho Penguin (our classroom namesake)
You will be given some questions to frame your research around.  Answer these questions, and then create a google doc or presentation, you are also encouraged to come up with some additional questions from your research to answer.
Please make sure you have downloaded the Google Chrome App onto to your device and have access to Google Drive.  You will be given a specific gmail address for school use this week.
As an extension activity, choose another breed of penguins that you are interested in and use the same Hoiho research questions to compare the two.  Present this information in a google doc or presentation as well.
