Badminton

It is great to be back into our badminton sessions again. Some of us that have not played before are picking up new skills quickly. Others of us are refining the skills we learnt last year. We always love playing games at the end of our lessons.

Carlton's Got Talent

On Wednesday night we held our very own talent quest "Carlton's Got Talent". We had so many brave students who showed some great talent. We had a mixture of dances, songs and even a haka. Some of our boys were involved. We are so proud of them!

Open Morning

We had a great turn out of family on our Carlton School Open Morning. Our families got to join in with what we were doing. In Te Whare Maanaki with Mr Ohia we were working on places in Aotearoa Kupe named when he discovered our land and what they meant. Back in the classroom we did our recrafting of our narrative stories. It was great to get ideas and help from our family. Everyone enjoyed showing their family around the classroom and having them join us for the morning. We would like to thank everyone that came and welcome you all to pop in to our classroom any time.










Keep Aotearoa Beautiful

The week is clean up New Zealand week. As a school we decided to help out. Every class went out and about to pick up all the rubbish we could find in our community. Our class went down to Springvale park. We were disgusted by the amount of rubbish we found. We are now working on letters to the council to make them aware of whats being dumped at the Freedom Camping spot in Springvale Park. We will publish some on here when we are done.

Cross Country

Today we had our school cross country. We are lucky enough to use Rutherford Junior High's bike track so it is more challenging for us. The boys pushed themselves and did really well. Good luck to the boys who will now be attending the interschool cross country.





 




 


 
 


 

Shape Monsters

For maths we have learnt lots about shapes. We learnt all about 2d shapes and 3d shapes; vertices, edges and faces. We used what we learnt to create shape monsters. We think they are pretty cool!

Pepeha

In class we have been learning about who discovered Aotearoa and when people first arrived so we decided we should learn about our own families. We used this information to create a Pepeha. We made a game in Gamefroot to share our Pepeha.

This is Te Huatahi's Game.

Calendar Art

For our calendar art we based it on the art work by the artist Kadinsky who likes to use circles. We think they look amazing and would be great as a calendar, on a diary or on a card. Please contact the school or our classroom teacher to order any of the calendar artwork.
Calendars are $18, a diary is $18 and 8 cards for $15.
