We were extremely lucky to have Stacy Gregg come and share her books with us this week. She even read us a chapter of her new book The Thunderbolt Pony which we loved listening to.
This week Top Team returned but this time bringing lots of water which was very exciting. The children had a fabulous time enjoying getting incredibly wet. We've seen a great improvement in being able to work collaboratively and it was fantastic seeing the children using their communication skills to achieve the task successfully.

It was great spending the afternoon with our buddy hub Totara. We made bookmarks for each other and learned to do a four way plait for our bookmarks. Thanks Totara!!! We ended with a practice for our Anei Ra sing off and wow this was amazing. Looking forward to Friday to hear the whole school sing off!
What an amazing session with Paddon from Sport Canterbury! The challenges, the excitement, smiles and goals made to work collaboratively together.

We are going to do a second round of challenges in Week 10 with water based activities. Looking forward to the fun ahead.
