Out and About in the Capital with Teina Syndicate

What an exciting day we had on Wed 15 November! Out and about in Wellington!

We headed off to Te Papa in the gorgeous sunshine, on the buses with Teina, and had morning tea then a self guided tour to our favourite spots. Then it was back on the bus to Parliament grounds where we had lunch on the grass, and a whole Teina, Kowhai syndicate photo. We then headed across the road to the National Library which had some fantastic displays, and interactive exhibits. They loved having us. Lots of fun and learning!! Then back to school on the bus...a big day out! A great day out!!

Fun with Harold!!

Last Friday we all went to visit Harold the Giraffe in the Life ed caravan. We were very intrigued with Harold and enjoyed giving him a pat. We also liked seeing the stars on the ceiling and dancing to the disco. The huge screen coming up with all the different body parts was cool too! Some of us also attended with our mainstream class as well. Thanks Harold and Charlotte for the visits!!

Back to School for Term 4!

We have all been enjoying being back at school - some of us took a few days to get used to getting up early again!

We had a visit from a gorgeous puppy our first day back.

The weeks are racing by - already a third of the way through term 4! We have been out and about on our usual trips to Chelsea Park and activities around the school.

All of us participated in the School Athletics day yesterday, and most of us did our numberthon tests today. The seniors are back to swimming on Thursday mornings, with 2 juniors joining Teina for swimming lessons this term.

We have lots to look forward to - a trip into the city with Teina in week 5, and a trip to the zoo in week 8, and our Christmas party sometime round the end of term. There will also be the Teina Production for the juniors to join in and the seniors to watch. We have been practising the songs for this when Teina come in for singing with us.

Watch this space!

One of our lovely Mums, Harshida came in to talk to us about Indian fashion, during Indian cultural week. We got dressed up in some indian outfits that Harshida brought in. Don't we look gorgeous!!

Kyra's sewing and fashion

Kyra has spent some time creating fashion pieces on a mannequin and also sewing triangular flags on the sewing machine. She is so creative and competent. Lovely to see!
