Friday, 2 February 2018


We have just completed our first week of school in 2018! We spent our first two days together as a home class before we visited our maths and literacy classes on Friday. It has been a great opportunity to get to know each other and our routines.

We have discussed the importance of forming positive relationships and working well with others, so we spent some time completing team building activities. One of these activities was called 'the floor is lava'. We split into our four houses and had to race across a court. We were given cardboard squares to stand on, but there was a catch; we didn't have enough squares for our entire team,

It was a lot of fun watching everyone travel to the other side and the activity involved lots of team work and effective communication.

In another one of our activities we had to get a hoop around the entire class without letting go of each others hands. We tried to do this as quickly as we could, but the task got more challenging as more hoops were introduced!

    Nau mai, haere mai, welcome to Tuhi Mai Tuhi Atu for 2018. I am excited that your class and literacy learners have joined a group and I will get to check out your blogs on a regular basis. My name is Tania and I am the organiser of Tuhi Mai Tuhi Atu. I live in Whangarei, a couple of hours North of where you live in Auckland. Have any of you ever been to Whangarei? We have lots of great beaches! It sounds like the year has got off to a fun start getting to know each other. The floor is lava would have taken lots of team work. What strategies did you find worked best to get all of your house to the other side of the court? Keep up the great work learning, creating and sharing.
