Day 1

We've had a great first day back at school after our summer holidays!  Here are some of the things we did today:

  • organised all our books and stationery
  • reviewed our emergency procedures
  • swimming
  • assembly
  • started reading our shared novel - 'Mr Tucket' by Gary Paulsen
  • visited the library
  • lunchtime swim
  • organised a lot of notices and paperwork
  • art

We are very grateful to have air-con (now that we've figured out how to work it).  It was a very hot day!  And of course, we HAD to take a few photos - Room 6 styles!

  1. Welcome back to everyone in Room 6. I'm so glad we have a school pool. Yesterday the temperature was 33.4 degrees at Palmerston North Airport which was the 3rd highest temperature in NZ. Whew.

  2. I can't wait to see what is going to happen this year, but bring on 2018!
