Life Jacket Safety

Room 24 have been learning all about life Jackets in swimming time. You should ALWAYS wear a life jacket when you go on a boat. Even if you are a strong swimmer. Room 24 have learnt what to do if we were in trouble in the water and wearing a life Jacket. The life jackets are  bright colours so they can be seen from far away.

Bike Tracking Opening

Room 24 wrote a recount of the Bike Track opening that happened this morning at school. Please read our writing. 

The Bike Track Opening

This summery, sunny morning Room 24 walked to the bottom field beside the park. We were going to watch the opening of the Point England bike track. 

First we sat down on the smooth, green grass in a line. Then we sang a song from the movie Moana. After that we sung some waiata.

Next some children puit on helmets and lined up on shiny, new red and blue bikes. 

Lastly two students cut the red ribbon. They raced around the track with smiling faces. We felt thrilled because we couldn't wait to have a go at riding the bikes!

River Safety in New Zealand

Today at swimming we learned about river safety. These are some things you can do to make sure you are safe in a river:

Always check the current. A way you can do this is throw in a stick and see how fast it moves. If it is fast DO NOT SWIM.

Be careful jumping into rivers because there can be rocks.

Rivers are often home to animals such as eels so be respectful. 

William's Recount

In the morning Room 24 went outside to pick up rubbish. First we lined up. After that we went around the school and picked up rubbish. Lastly we went inside and washed our hands. I felt responsible.

Shayna's Recount

On Sunday I played a game with my friend. First I played rock paper scissors with her to see who would pick a game. She won so she picked hang man. After that we went outside to the back yard to help my Mum paint a picture. Lastly I went with my mum to drop off my friend. I felt joyful because I had so much fun!

Picking Up Rubbish

Room 24 picked up rubbish in the morning.

First we lined up then Miss Szymanik gave out 2 plastic bags to Cherish and Jordan.

We went around the school and picked up heaps of rubbish. It was disgusting.

After we washed our hands with soap and water.

We were responsible.
