Mr Freke's farewell assembly

This morning was Mr Freke's final assembly at Vardon School.  The whole school have been working together to farewell him.  Every class gave him a gift to remind him of us at Vardon School.  He got coffee and a coffee mug, a special shirt and tie, some scuba diving gear and some building tools and lots of other things as well.  Each class wrote a poem or a plan on why they gave him their gift.

Room 2 gave Mr Freke his very own KC model to remind him to be a KC principal at his new school.

We will miss you Mr Freke and we hope your new school is as good as Vardon!

Starfish poem

We read a poem about a starfish this week.
We watched some video clips and learnt a lot of facts about starfish or Sea Stars, as they are also called.  You can also hear a story about starfish.
What do you think the story means?

Giant Stories

Today the boys and girls in Karearea reading group did some of their learning on the iPad.
They took photos of the giants and wrote about them.  They thought about whether all giants were the same or different.
