On Tuesday of the last week of term we enjoyed a Kowhai shared kai to celebrate our learning during our "Eating For Health" inquiry topic. We were all very impressed with the healthy efforts made by the children and their families. We certainly had our 5 servings of fruit and vegetables that day.
Our last parent story teller read the much loved book 'Herbert The Sea Dog" to us this week. We so much enjoyed having parents sharing stories with us that Tracy is going to look at continuing this activity in Term 2. Watch out for the new sign up list.
On Wednesday we noticed the mysterious appearance of penguins around the school. No one knows where they came from but they had also been spotted on Walter's Bluff. Maybe some of you would like to write a story about the penguins over the holiday and share it with your Room 11 friends when we meet in Term 2.
Our final poem of the term has an Easter feel to it. See how many rhyming words you can hear.
