Future Olympic Gold Medal Winners

Ben has been teaching us about gymnastics. He has taught us how to do cartwheels, forward rolls, handstands and backward rolls, just to name a few. We have learnt about the key movement skills linked to gymnastics, these include: balance, rotation, spring, swing, flight, locomotion and landing. Thank you Ben for teaching us about these skills and for making it fun. You never know, one of us may win a gold medal at an olympics in the near future...watch this space!

Heritage Park Museum

Last week, Rooms 13 & 15 visited Heritage Park Museum to look at Whangarei and Northland's taonga/treasures. The education teachers at the museum were amazing. They discussed the many aspects within a museum and how a museum operates. We learnt about the origins of 'museums' and how it (museum) got its name. The classes were split into two groups. One group visited the Kiwi House...WOW!!! The kiwis had a disagreement with each other, which excited us all. The other class went on a 'taonga treasure hunt', then we swapped activities. All in all, the visit was a huge success. A special thank you to the many parents/caregivers who helped with transportation and supervision.
