Term 3 ...

The first week of the new term has whizzed by.  We ended it with lots of celebrations. First was our termly powhiri welcoming new students, whanau and teachers to our school.

Today was also 100's Day. Every day in class we count and keep track of how many days we've been at school.  

It's an exciting time when we get to 100 and today we celebrated this special event in style.  Many of us came dressed in something to do with 100 (spots, stripes, the number, even play money)...  

We had a dance-off and a parade with all the junior classes...

Super-Duper B5

Happy 100 Days Everyone!
The Year 2 students then did 100s fitness.  We had 10 stations and did at least 10 of each activity before we moved to the next. Phew - what a great workout.  Then our class enjoyed a lovely shared lunch...

Throughout the afternoon we enjoyed doing some 100 maths activities, counted our postcards (we've got 92 now) and then took 100 cups and made a pyramid.  We got to about 80 before it collapsed.  Lot's of fun...

Easy does it, Hayley...
One by one, Hope...
Mugundhan looks good in 100...
This is our poem for the week:

We liked the poem so much, we wrote our own version...
