Safety Vests

We have all been given our very own safety vests. We thought they would be great to wear when we are walking, scooting or biking to and from school, and when we are out biking with our families in the weekend. We think we look really cool! We are very easy to see when we are wearing our vests!

Netball Skills

Welcome back to Term 3.

Today we had fun learning about netball.
First we did a warm up with some jogging, skipping and balancing skills and then we learned to do a chest pass. We had races and relays in teams to run around the circle and pass the ball around the circle to see which team would win.  We think the running teams were faster than the throwing teams.

Mieke's Halloween FIngers!

Mieke and her mum made some scary monster fingers for us all for Halloween. She used green cookie dough for the fingers, jam for the blood, and nuts for the finger nails. They were creepy but they tasted delicious! Thank you Mieke!!
