Reporoa Cluster Schools' Cultural Festival

Today we performed our Kapa Haka items at
 the Reporoa Cluster Schools' Cultural Festival.
It was our very first time performing in front of an audience and also
the very first time we had been onto the stage at the College.
We were all very nervous beforehand but once we were on the stage we
forgot about the audience and did our very best.
We all had a great time.
Thank you Whaea Donna for teaching us!!

3-D SHAPES

To complete our unit on '3-D shapes' we have been constructing 3-D shapes out of spaghetti and marshmallows.

The marshmallows are the vertices (corners).
The spaghetti makes the edges (sides).

Before we were able to make a shape we had to say it's name
 and how many marshmallows and pieces of spaghetti we needed to make it.
It was fiddly but fun to do.
Watch our photostory.

Pass It

Term 3 has started with another Bay of Plenty sports activity.
We are now doing 'Pass it', which has a netball focus.
Our first teacher was Anna, she taught us how to do chest passes.

Then we had Julianna Naoupu, she has just been named as a Silver Fern!!!
Lots of us took the opportunity to get her autograph or a photo.
We are so lucky to be able to work with one of the country's best players.

We also had Lucy coach us, she helped us to improve our bounce passes.
