Term 2 2021

 Wow! End of week 4 already.    We have been super busy with cross country running, sport, art,  a magic show, road safety, and our new reading programme. Mrs Mackenzie has been impressed with our writing this term as we are now all writing more sounds by ourselves. Netball practice  Constable Shaun talking about road safety, How to cross the road. Elgregoe the magician and his McCaw.

Bird Lady comes to School

 Mrs Watson and Mrs Mackenzie arranged for Sarah Ward to come to school with some of her show birds. She came with some canaries,  cockatiels, budgies, a quail, a lovebird, finches, and a pigeon.  We even got to pat the pigeon, which was pretty cool. Thank you Sarah for sharing your birds and your knowledge with us.


This term the Junior School are inventing bird feeders for our feathered friends. We have walked around the school investigating what birds we have on the school grounds.  We have seen magpies, blackbirds and a few sparrows. In class we have a display of birds that we know and birds that we find in our gardens at home.  (Please help us look out for birds in our gardens. Our job is to design a bird feeder that will attract birds into our gardens at home but also at school. Due to the cancellation of our aviary visit, Tania brought her two birds in.  Their names are Salt and P epper.

We have painted a butterfly this week and we also wrote about what we saw with our first butterfly. You are more than welcome to come and read our wonderful writing.
