Last Swimming Lesson

 Today we had our final swimming lesson. It has been an amazing four weeks and we have really enjoyed improving our swimming skills thanks to our amazing instructors at the YMCA Glen Innes Pool.

We are currently waiting to find out if we won the swimming contest! Each week team 5 competes to have the most swimmers from each class. We have had all but one or two students swim each week and our whole class have participated in the lessons.

Spending time together during our Room 4 lunchtime

Despite swimming at our lunchtime, we have all had a positive attitude and we've enjoyed spending this time as a class.

Task Description: So today while the year 8s went to tech my rotation group make origami's. Above here you can see I made an origami heart. We made origami to fill in for Te Reo, because our te reo teachers were away. Overall I thought this was a super fun task to finish, and hope to make another some time. 

Maybe you can try make a heart Origami by using this video.

Welcome back to Term 4!

 Can you believe it is term 4 already? We are excited to be back at school after a restful break. This term our theme is Art Alive, so we will be getting creative and looking at lots of different artists; we can't wait to get started!

Another subject that we are excited about this term is swimming. We have four swimming lessons at the start of the term which we are really grateful for. During our first swimming lesson on Wednesday, 100 percent of our class had their togs and were ready to swim. Ka pai Room 4!
