Pet Day

Yesterday we had a fantastic time at pet day!

Some of our favourite parts of pet day was seeing the pets, 3-legged races, the cats, and spending time with whanau. Here are some pictures of the day!

This week in Ruma D Jo the Beekeeper came to teach us about bees. We learnt about the different types of bees and the different roles they have in the hive. 
- Drone bees are boy bees and they don't really do much in the hive. In Autumn the worker bees kick the drone bees out of the hive. - Worker bees get the nectar and bring them back into the hive. The also help look after the queen bee. - Queen bee is the big bee who lays the eggs in the hive. All the worker bees look after her and give her royal jelly.

In fitness this week we have been playing a Sports Start game called Hey dude!, and human tennis! It is about practicing catching and throwing the tennis ball over your arms.

This week is is Te Wiki o te reo Maori. We have celebrated this by looking at the longest place name in New Zealand and completing some fun te reo booklets.

Cityscape art

This week some of us finished our cityscape art! We all loved taking our time to finish it. We had to break the house art work into 3 parts starting with the front houses.
