This week was Maree's first full week with us. She has very quickly become a valuable member of our Room 11 family. Here she is sharing her mihi with the children and teaching them how to count in Maori.
Our report writing this week was about the kiwi bird and we were very lucky to be able to look at and touch a real kiwi lent to us by Dave from Room 2.
A kiwi is a bird but it can not fly. It only lives in New Zealand and we are lucky to have kiwi's
On Wednesday we had an impromptu Futsal lesson as a spare session was available and we jumped at the chance to be outside on a sunny day. As you can see from the clip below we all had heaps of fun and burned off loads of energy. We have another Futsal session this Tuesday.

After acquiring lots of knowledge about wheels and axles over the last few weeks we put all this into practise by starting to make our own junk trolleys....look at how they are developing.
Wishing you all a safe and happy week and I hope to see lots of you on our Suter trip this Tuesday.
