Buddy Classes Perform in Assembly

On Tuesday 19 October we performed
with our Buddy Class (R12) in school assembly.
We sang 'Once Upon a Time in a Nursery Rhyme'
which is the story of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears.
Papa Bear and Mama Bear were from Room 12
and we were all Baby Bear.
Shaye was Goldilocks.
We made and wore bear masks.
Our parents came to watch us perform.
It was exciting!

Taranaki Blowout


Our first study in the 4th term
was related to natural disasters.
Our major focus was on volcanoes,
especially being prepared
in the event of a volcanic eruption
on Mt. Taranaki / Egmont.
We learnt that our mountain is a dormant,
or sleeping, volcano
and that it could erupt one day.
Other volcanoes are active (they are erupting now)
and some are extinct (will never erupt again).
We listened to the Maori legend
'The Battle of the Mountains'.
and made mountains to show the present position
of the different mountains.
We had a special lunch
that included non-perishable items
that could be included in an emergency / survival kit.
We enjoyed noodles, tinned fruit & fish, muesli bars,
popcorn, crackers and other food
that had been dried or in sealed containers.
