Rugby Skills

Image
We have all really enjoyed learning different winter ball skills. As part of this learning we had fun learning how to kick a rugby ball. We all went out to the bottom field and took turns at trying to kick goals. Here are some photos of us. I think some of us might be All Blacks when we are older!!

We had great fun with our buddies last Friday learning all sorts of string games. Our buddies were really patient with us and very good teachers.






























Rimu Team Tour of Palmerston North

Image
We have been learning all about what Palmerston North has to offer and also we have enjoyed learning all about the places of historical interest in our city.  We went on a really interesting bus tour of the city and here are some photos of our day.


Here we are at Anzac Park which used to be a fortified Maori village. We got an amazing view of the city.


Here we are at Karaka Grove which, like Anzac Park, is a place of great historical interest. Here the Rangitane tribe fought a fierce battle in the 1800's.


Karaka Grove is near a dairy farm and we were lucky enough to visit some brand new little calves.


We had our morning tea in the Esplanade. The cafe at the Esplanade used to be the old Post Office.


We had our lunch in the Square.


We did a hunt in the Square and we enjoyed looking at all the statues, sculptures, the war memorial and the clock tower.




Maths About New Zealand

We love doing Maths. Here we are learning the Te Reo names for cities  and places in New Zealand. We had to add and subtract with dominoes to get around New Zealand and we had to say the place names in Te Reo.
