Homebase 20 at New World Northwood as part of our Food for Thought programme learning to read labels. Thanks to our parent helpers for transport and learning in the supermarket, New World for having us in store and Rita from Food for Thought for teaching, our new lunch boxes and eating plan whiteboards!!
On Friday Mrs Wilson taught the tamariki about Picasso faces, this included drawing with a pencil and their toes!!! They then start some amazing art pieces, check out these photo's.
What a fantastic day we had at Spencer Park experiencing and living the St Albans Value of Fun! The sun was shining and the children had an amazing day. Some of the activities that were highlights were the playground, flying foxes, spider net, synchronised swinging, the octopus, futsal, cricket, beach volleyball and tennis.
Hungry tummies were filled with a sausage sizzle for lunch! Then some of the children chose to try the orienteering course. A few wrong turns mixed with some serious competitors running the course, everyone found the markers and the finish marker.
A huge thank you to all our parent helpers across Waimakariri and Ōtākaro for their help to make our BDO Fun!
