We wish you a Merry Christmas!

Santa visited Tāmaki Primary School and delivered some cool presents. Tasola, Junior, Puanesi and AJ loved their gifts. THANK YOU SANTA!

On our last day of school, we put on hats. Puanesi become an elf along with AJ. Junior and Tasola were reindeer for the entire day. 

We are having so much fun says Tasola. It looks so cool says Junior. We wish you a Merry Christmas. Have a very very good holiday.

School at Alert Level 3.2

AJ, Junior and Tarzan returned for Room 3's first day at school this week. 

Today's weather was sunny so we did our work outside underneath the shade. Check out the pictures of our writing lesson. 

We wrote about our homes and houses. Did you know that AJ, Tarzan and Junior live in two storey houses! How crazy is that? Junior has six bedrooms and two kitchens at his house. AJ has a HUGE backyard at this house and Tarzan lives in a house with his Mum, Dad, brother and sister.

Stories by Junior

This has been Junior's week. He's a machine and is DESTROYING his learning during lockdown.😀 Junior has written a story about his weekend and used sequence words to make sure that his ideas are in the right order. He answered questions about a story he read and wrote them down for us to enjoy. And just when you think he's finished, he writes an amazing story about cooking....whaaaaaaaaat!?💥👏  Junior is amazing!

Ka rawe Junior! 👌😀 At this rate, I'm going to have to change the name from Room 3's Blog to Junior's Writing Blog! 😆 Thank you for sharing your awesome mahi!

Welcome to Term 4

We have enjoyed our first week of Term 4. We did lots of online learning and even had Reading and Math workshops! Some of us sent photos of our learning to share with everyone. Check them out below.

Uasi has been practising Phonics. Uasi would listen for a word. He would break the word up into chunks of sound and then write those letter sounds into his book. Fantastic stuff Uasi!

Junior shared his Challenge Tuesday activity. The task on Tuesday was to construct a self-portrait using materials from home. Junior cleverly used fruit, vegetables and a table to make his self-portrait. Very creative Junior, excellent job!

This week, we started learning about the Seasons for our Inquiry topic. AJ spent Friday morning writing a story about a Summer beach trip. Thanks for your mahi AJ!
