Duffy Theatre

This year Duffy and his friend Rosie are excitedly awaiting a visit from Duffy’s famous, rugby league playing uncle, Bingo. They are taken aback however when they begin to learn that Bingo isn’t a big fan of books and maybe can’t read at all! With ideas from the audience and Duffy’s King of Colours book, the pair go on a journey to help Bingo learn the importance of reading and the benefits it can have for everyone, everywhere.  Together, Duffy and Rosie sing and stumble their way through to the realisation that everyone has a different favourite story and that each person’s story is just as awesome as the next. 

This was such a fantastic treat, our children were a fabulous audience and hopefully they took away the key message of reading material that you are interested in and authors you enjoy.

Jump Jam

In the holidays, Miss O'B bought 2 new Jump Jam CD's for Te Mahia School. Putiki is a Jump Jam king so we went to the library on Friday and started learning some new moves. We brainstormed what makes a great Jump Jam leader and here is our thinking. Putiki chose Mem, Awhina and Manaia to help him learn and present Boom Boom Pow. Patricia and Tia are also going to choose one from the other CD.  Keep watching, we will have a video on our class blog soon so you can see what we look like.

Term 2 Day1

Room 2 are learning about what happens when you mix an acid and an alkali. We did a Scientific  Demonstration. 
We were surprised when we saw how much gas we made. The gas blew up our balloon.

What can you do with so much gas??? 

This is our demonstration gas powered rocket. 

It is powered with acid (vinegar) and alkali (baking soda).It went about 3metres high.
