On Tuesday we had 4 teams competing in a Rippa Rugby Cluster Day. All teams played exceptionally well and we are looking forward to the next cluster day.

A special shout out to all the students who competed for taking so much pride in representing our school and showing outstanding sportsmanship and our school values.
Showing great School values in the School Car Park

We are aware of the inadequacy of our School Car Park and are grateful for the cooperation of the School Community for keeping our students, staff and whanau safe. 

This is a gentle reminder to please show respect for others by not parking on dotted yellow lines at any time or parking behind vehicles so as to obstruct vehicles from exiting at any time.Chasing up owners of vehicles can waste Office Staff time and can result in the owner of the obstructed vehicle missing an urgent appointment.

Learning from Room 5

On Tuesday as part of a maths experience a group of us made some apple and mint flavoured water. We took mint leaves from the plant and smelled them. Zara shared that she puts mint into curries and yoghurt at home, Zoe shared about the herb garden from Kakapos and Iwa said it smelled fresh.  We each chose a leaf to pick then tore it up and added it our jug.
Mrs O had a special knife, safe for kids, that we used to cut up some apples. We had to remember to saw the knife forward and back while pressing down so we could cut through the apple. We each put the apples in 2 at a time and counted as we went. We got a big bowl of water and a measuring cup and took turns to fill up our jug. It held 10 cups altogether! Ariah pointed out that the apples and mint floated to the top of the jug and didn't sit on the bottom. I wonder why this happened Ariah? We got to pour our own mug of water and when we tasted the water it was delicious!
What started out as a maths experience turned into a oral language explosion , a food technology lesson, a writing motivator and a great way to demonstrate our school values of respect, responsibility and resilience.
Ka Pai room 5 awesome team work!
ESOL Learning Term 2

The Year 3 ESOL learners have been working on Blends and Digraphs which are crucial skills needed in learning to read. These skills make reading and spelling easier.
A Consonant Blend is when two or more consonants are blended together, but each sound may be heard in the blend – example: bl, tr, fl, etcetera and Digraphs (a group of two successive letters that represent a single sound – sh, th, ph, etc.).
The learners have created a Consonant Digraph Garden as seen below:

Netball update on the Taniwhas
The Y5 Taniwha’s played this week against the Marina View Warriors. It was a very windy game, but the girls step up the elements and played really well together. The Taniwha’s won 10-5 with joint player of the day going to Jocelyn & Fionnuala who worked the ball really well together.
Kāhui Kaipatiki Sports Day
Target Road Netball came 3rd at the Kāhui Kaipatiki Sports Day. Nataliah, Sonakshi, Fionnula, Zoe, Maxine, Ula and Yana all showed great resilience, fair play and improved throughout the day. They played 5 games, winning against Marlborough, Windy Ridge and Glen field Primary School.  They lost to Mānuka and Bay view. Nataliah was awarded Most Valuable Player because of her strong defence skills and ability to think quickly in any position. Thank you to the Glenfield College student coaches  Levi and Cam for encouraging them and giving them advice.
