Wairoa Winter Warmers Big Day Out

On Wednesday Room 2 had an action packed Wairoa day.
At the library the Librarian read us a fishing story using her funny voices.  Then we went upstairs where we choose our own books and a pen to keep, and we got some treats.  We got so many cool prizes just because we did all of our 10 winter warmers book reviews. Jahnei.

Next we walked to the pools to have a swimming lesson from Aunty Sarah. She is a very talented swimming teacher and she showed me how to dive.  When you dive you put your hands up and cover your ears and push off with your feet. If you do this it will work and your dive will look amazing.  Then we got to have free time to play stuck in the mud.  The swim was the most marvelous part of the day.  By Memaree

As part of our inquiry on the human body we went to the dental clinic to visit Grace. She answered our questions and showed us all of the equipment that she uses to look after out teeth.  We saw all the rooms including the store room and Grace’s office. She had a very special chair that went up and down.

We went to the skateboard park to play on our scooters and skateboards. We got to go really fast down the ramp and over the bumps.  Rome did jumps. It was fun because we had races and everyone had a turn. Rebecca

The best part of the day was playing with our friends.

Te Mahia Cross Country

Thursday was crosscountry.We held it in the gully which had trees, mud and a bridge to cross over the creek. Room 2 children ran really  fast and had lots of fun. It was a very cool day

X-Country at Nuhaka School

Tuki, Sharon, Patricia T-A, Rome, Becky, Jahnei, Ryan, Manaia, Lucas, Waitama and Jhalena travelled over to Nuhaka School on Tuesday to participate in the Nuhaka School x-country. It was a cooler day, perfect for running after the summer like weather we had on Monday. All of our Mahitians ran with a cranked up level of effort after our school x-country last Thursday.  Many thanks to Nuhaka School for inviting us over, all of our whanau that were there cheering on the side lines and to our tamariki who achieved some more personal goals on the day.

Special mention to Becky who placed 1st, Jahnei 2nd and Sharon Maru 3rd in their respective age divisions. Ka mau te wehi tamariki ma.
