Thank You And Good Luck!

I just want to take this opportunity to thank you all for a wonderful term in Room 2. Thank you to the parents and caregivers for your fantastic support and all the best for the future. Thank you too to all the lovely Room 2 children. You are amazing!

We're Going On A Bear Hunt




Room 2 put on their performance of We're Going on A Bear Hunt for Rooms 1, 3 and 4 today and also some of the parents made it along which made it all the more special. What a great job they all did. Everyone played their parts brilliantly which made the whole performance great. Well done to everyone!

Final Pride Assembly

We had our final Pride Assembly on Friday which was very exciting. 2 of our Room 2 children received a special award for being exemplary students in using the Getting Along key. Ka pai, Thomas and Tiya!
Below are some photos of Michelle awarding the certificates to the children of Beckenham School:











On Friday afternoon, all the children in the Junior Whānau got an ice block as a reward for doing so well at the Celebration of Learning. Thank you, Ms Hulme! Here is Room 2 enjoying the reward on that wet, wet day:

Sherbet Fizz

And here is another Kitchen Chemistry experiment that Room 2 conducted on Friday:

Last time we made raisins dance. This time we made sherbet fizz and it was exciting trying out all the different ingredients. The final mix was deliciously sweet - a unanimous consensus!!!

Take a look for yourselves:


All the ingredients and utensils needed for the experiment:


All ready to go:


Let's go outside where we can make a mess:


Tasting all the different ingredients - baking soda, icing sugar, cordial powder and tartaric acid:


Mix it all up and what do you get?


Yummy, sweet and fizzy sherbet - delicious!







Hi there!

It's about time we updated the blog with some more photos.
Room 2 have been working hard on their singing as we have been rehearsing Christmas songs for parents to come and hear at the Junior Whānau Celebration of Learning on Thursday 6th December from 4pm until 5.50pm. It will be lots of fun and a chance for parents to see what we have been up to over the last term. Invites will be out soon!
Look at all the singing going on:
