Busy Old Friday

Good afternoon,

Once again, the day seemed like a bit of a blur, but I'm pretty sure we did some poetry at some point...

And if you're wondering where your jersey or polar fleece(s) are...Tyler...or your shoes...Liam...

...or you're missing a couple of unnamed hats or thermals...please check out out lost property box!

Have a great long weekend,

Mr Grant

No News Thursday

Good evening,

Nothing much to report about today really. We did...stuff...the day was a bit of a blur, as it often is...and then it ended.

We did do an R.E. assessment, which they all did really well at...

The Holy Spirit

Enjoy the sunset, it looks rather spectacular this evening.

Wednesday's Wednesday

Good evening,

Not an awful lot to report really. We had a Wednesday.

Some maths assessments, some spelling assessments, a big book lesson... well as various reading activities.

So...overall...a Wednesday was had by all.

Laid Back Tuesday

Good afternoon,

This morning was particularly laid back - 18 of the 26 were out at Kapa Haka from Maths to Morning Tea.

So, well...I got some assessments done, the remainder got some digital numeracy practice...

...and a couple even helped Nikki with counting the soap money!

Thanks again for the cutlass Nikki, it makes a great template.

After a bit of fitness with R12 before lunch...

...and some R.E. this afternoon...

...we then popped outside for some P.E.

And a good time was had by all.

See you in the morning,

Mr Grant

Some Photos Monday

Though, not many. And not really of the class. And not by me...

Good afternoon,

'Twas a bit chilly this today. A bit chilly indeed. Didn't stop me sending Kirsty and Whero down the road to illustrate their book this morning!

Walking To School

I did at least keep them inside for fitness!

Go Noodle!

Absent Friday...

...not that I was actually absent, but, well...

Good evening,

Seeing as I was out of the room writing report comments today...I was able to pop in and out as I pleased!

Room 5 invited Room 2 over for prayers first thing...

Hmmm, looks like we'll have to go over this one a few times before we invite Room 5 over to us!

And the day carried on.

There's even a wee video somewhere, sitting on one of the iPads. When I find it, I'll share it with you.

In the meantime, have a nice weekend,

Mr Grant

iPad Thursday

Good afternoon,

And another lovely afternoon it is. Quite lovely.

Anyhow, today the iPads got quite a workout. They were used for maths...

...for Reading, where Kahurangi, and some extras, went outside to act out No More Cakes...

No More Cakes

...and some used them for R.E. this afternoon, as we were drawing symbols of the Holy Spirit.

I'm not in the Room tomorrow, though I will be at school, so...have a nice evening.

No Photos Wednesday...

...which is not to mean we didn't do anything! Case in point...

...Ma Reading Group created information webs using Popplet from their text this morning.

I'll try to do better tomorrow!

A Tuesday In Autumn

Good afternoon,

And a lovely afternoon it has been. A great afternoon to be outside running with a rugby ball.

We also did a touch of reading earlier in the day...

...after quite a productive session of maths.

See you in the morning,

Mr Grant

Video Monday

Good evening,

The camera didn't get out much at all today...well, actually it did, 'twas my phone that stayed away - the charger disconnected overnight, so...anyway, I did at least manage to capture two of the reading groups sharing with us at the end of reading.

Sorry, the lighting, and the quality of the clip, precluded any green screening.

Keep practicing your production songs at home!

Frantic Friday

Good afternoon,

Today was a touch frantic, from a teacher's perspective...though I think the children quite enjoyed themselves!

So much so that these were the only shots I took all day...

...of our weekly visit to the library.

Thank you to those who were able to join us for assembly, it was great to see such a large turn out. Sorry for the rush of it all, we didn't really have time to practice with the mic in the hall...and I thought the data projector remote was missing, right up until someone pointed out that it was right there in front of me!


Have a great weekend,

Mr Grant

Absent Thursday

Good afternoon,

I've been out doing reports all day, but in my absence...Room 2 had a great day!

They did a little bit of this...

...a little bit of that...

...and a little bit of the other thing.

And a good time was had by all.

Thanks Mrs McDonald,

Mr Grant
