Surprise visitor

This morning for news, Wi bought his new kitten 'Sugar' in to share with the class. It was very exciting for the children and it caused some great discussion on pets.

Paper plane competition

On Monday 24 August, Team Pango had a paper plane competition. The Warehouse Gisborne donated paper and the store manager from the Warehouse Gisborne was the judge and had prizes for the best decorated plane in each class and the plane that covered the most distance in the flying competitions. 
Well done to Brett for receiving the prize for the flying and Brayden for the best decorated plane.
It was a fun filled afternoon. Check out the photos below!

Mr Channon and bees

On Friday 21st, room 4 was lucky enough to have Isabella's Dad, Mr Channon visit and share his knowledge about bees. He even bought in a beehive and showed us the different parts of a beehive. We learnt that the queen bee lays roughly 1500 eggs a day, and when bees get angry they start buzzing loudly.
Do you have any knowledge about bees, if so comment below :)

Room 4 had a visitor today

Today we had Miss Hickling come into our class and hang out with us for the morning. She helped with writing and maths groups. She is currently studying primary teaching at Waikato University. The children enjoyed having an extra teacher in the classroom. Check out the photos below!

Today room 4 visited MindLab and learnt about electronics and coding. Everyone learnt how to make their own music on the website scratch (which is free to use on any computer connected to wifi) and how to programme robots and control them. It was a fun filled afternoon with lots of learning happening. Check out the photos and make sure to ask your child all about it :)

Our very own bee keeper

Isabella has bee hives at her house and she even has her very own bee suit! Today she bought it into school to share with the class for news. Everyone was very interested in the bee suit including myself, thank you Isabella!

Ka pai to Leityn for receiving the team Pango shield week 2 of term 3! 

Book Parade

Who can guess the characters room 4 students dressed up as? They all look wonderful and creative. 
Congratulations to Brayden (the joker) and Chloe (bad jelly the witch) for winning the prizes for our class. What a hard decision it was to choose just two winners! 

All black art

We have been working hard to design and complete our very own all blacks shirts for our backing black day which will be Wednesday 12th August. The children included symbols that reflected New Zealand as a country.
