The Day it snowed in Tokoroa!

Today is the day it snowed in Tokoroa!!
Today at 9:30am we had snow. All the classes came out to play in the snow.
It doesn't snow very much in Tokoroa so this was cool for us.

Significant Day presentations

At the end of term 2 we started doing work on significant days. We had to do a presentation to the class on the significant day we chose.
We had some people doing Matariki, Guy Fawkes, Christmas, Mardi Gras, Valentines Day, Easter and many more. Some of us worked in pairs and some of us worked alone. We could do it as a power point,on a chart or using the  inter write.

This is Michael's presentation on Diwali - he finished it by giving the class some burfi - a traditional Indian sweet

Term 3... and interclass netball begins.

On Tuesday the 2 August room 10 faced room 9 in inter class netball. Room 10 had to bring together a team of 7 including boys. It was a fun game and most subs went on. At the end the day the score was 17- 13 with a win for room 10. The players that were on were mostly boys. The boys played an awesome game for their first time playing but some got pulled up by the refs too much. The player of the day was Shaneya Ihaka with her fantastic shooting and Lucky Uerata  with his great passes and centre position.
