Term 3 highlights for Room 5!

Out and about in Term 3!

Term 3 highlights were Swimming, Kaitiaki, Sports day, Athletics. This term we started swimming at Moana pool on Tuesdays. We had four rotations of swimming ( kayaking, deep water, wave pool and just swim lessons ). 

This term we also started our Kaitiakitanga project. We were lucky to go the museum and look at the exhibitions. We explored Dunedin sound, we got to do gold panning and much more.nFor Kaitiaki the whole school had to do something about the history of New Zealand but our class and Room 6 did ours about the history of Tahuna. We created a great museum for our family to come in and see.

Instead of doing sports electives this term, we made Fridays our House sports day. On Fridays we would go out to the court and get in our teams. Once you've gotten into your team you would then go out and verse another team in a range of different sports. All these games went to house points.

On Friday the 16th of September we had our school athletics day. On the athletics day we had 8 different rotations: 800m, long jump, shot put, sprints, discus, relays, hurdles, and high jump. It was really funny being down at the caledonian.

 This was a really great term and we're looking forward to the next one!
