Room 3 has now changed over to seesaw, which is an online portfolio for your child. They will bring home a note and QR code for it today. This means we will no longer be using the room 3 blog. Please use seesaw to see announcements and updates of the wonderful work your child is doing.

Bike Trip
On Friday we went on a trip to the esplanade with room 1 and 2. We took our bikes and went for a long bike ride along the river, the children showed so much determination and perseverance. After our bike ride we practiced our biking skills on the pretend road. We had to try and remember the road rules. Then we got to play on the playground and we made a quick trip to the wildbase recovery for birds. Thank you so much to all of the amazing parent helpers! You made this trip possible.

Totara Reserve Trip

On Tuesday the whole school went on a trip to Totara Reserve. The junior school went on buses and when we got there we saw a cool camping ground surrounded by bush. We rotated around different activities like relays and a bush walk. Then we did some learning as a class about leaves and different trees. After lunch we got to have a swim in the river and build towers and rock pools with all of the stones. We had such a fun day. Thanks to all of the parents who came along to help.
