Last Few Days of the School Year

 On Tuesday of Week 9 we began our end of term celebrations by watching the Kiwi Flier movie and having our Popcorn Shop day. We all had 3 Kowhai popcorn tokens to use, but it was still tricky deciding which popcorn to choose form all the delicious treats.

 On Wednesday we had a fun packed afternoon at the Nelson Library with Room 12a. We listened to Viv reading some funny stories, learned some new songs, had chance to get some books out for the holidays and also enjoyed some festive art and craft. Make sure you keep using the library regularly during the holidays to keep those Room 11 super reading skills fresh.

 When we got back from the library I had the most wonderful surprise when I was presented with an enormous gift hamper full of special treats and lovely messages. I can not thank you enough for this very special gift. I feel very lucky to have worked with all our Room 11 families during 2012 and remember Room 10 door will always open for anyone to pop in and let me know how they are getting on.

On Thursday afternoon we had a swimming session together which helped us to cool off before Will's dad came to read us a very tricky tongue twister story....a fabulous way to end our parent reading sessions this year.
Monday was our Big Day Out at Founders Park. I was busy at school moving classrooms but thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the photos that were taken during the day. Here are a few of my favourites. 

Finally I would like to wish each and everyone of you a safe and happy holiday, and a special time with family and friends over the festive season. Have a well deserved rest and I will look out for you all on Wednesday 30th January 2013.
