Thursday, 18 June 2015


We have been enjoying gymnastics.  Lots of fun and new skills being learned.  


We are learning about word families. We know we can change the first letter and leave the rest of the word the same to make a new word. We can write a list of words . 


This term we have been learning to show panekiretanga.

We have learned a new word - AGENCY and we describe this as, "knowing what to do without being told".  We are showing panekiretanga when we use our agency skills.  Here are some photos of us hard at work, as we follow our literacy plan.  Did you know we plan our own literacy?
