Last Day Wednesday

Good morning,

Just before I head out to Star Wars Episode VII I remembered that I hadn't posted our farewells.

So here they are.

Many thanks for your very generous gift, and thanks once again for all of your support over they year, Merry Christmas, have a safe and Happy New Year...

...and may the Force Be With You!

Rutherford Team Fun Day...

...was fun!

Good afternoon,

And a great afternoon it has been too. A great day, in point of fact.

What, from the bus ride... the morning spent exploring the gardens...

 the afternoon water colours lesson...

...I can fairly safely say that a good time was had by all.

Full summer uniform tomorrow please - we have our final Mass @ 11. Then home for the holidays @ 12:30. (And Star Wars @ 10:30 Thursday morning!)

Walkie Monday

Good afternoon,

And a lovely afternoon it is too. Quite a contrast from yesterday!

Not an awful lot to report really. This morning was spent walking down to the Cashmere High School auditorium...

...practicing for tonight (the choir were this close to being cut!)...and, in spite of photographic evidence to support the assertion...we also walked back to school for lunch (a choir practice!) and some TRUMP!


Please arrive at the Cashmere High School auditorium (Rose Street) by 5:40 in either summer uniform or Kapa Haka uniform.

As for tomorrow - sports uniform, sun block, sun hats, morning tea, lunch and water bottles - all of which they'll carry themselves in their school bags - please.

See you tonight,

Mr Grant

Bye Bye Friday

Good afternoon,

Well, today was a messy old day.

We, well, wound up our time in Room 2...

...and started our time in Room 3.

...which did cause some confusion at assembly!

Have a great weekend,

Mr Grant

Last Days Thursday

Actually, final Thursday, if you think about it. By this time next week I will have already seen Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens!

Good afternoon,

Today was the start of our final...well, all sorts of stuff.

Our final class meditation...

...our final numeracy session...where the children sorted out all of the maths stuff!

And there was a heap of it! Two heaps, in point of fact. Well done Room 2.

For our final writing session we completed a Two Stars, One Wish sheet, which you will see tomorrow. Well, if they followed instructions at least...

And our final Big Book lesson, which was, as is usual for a Thursday, focused on vocabulary.

Our final R.E. session was all about completing the Christmas Wreaths.

The Big Shift happens after morning tea tomorrow - Room 2's moving to Room 3 for the rest of the year! I guess they'll have to get used to being called Room 3 for our final three days! So if you're keen on cleaning...

Wet Wednesday

Well, it was for me anyway!

Good afternoon,

I hope you enjoyed the mini fair - the sponge throw seemed to be doing a roaring trade!

This morning we had our last session of balloon badminton.

And a good time was had by all!

Have a nice evening. S'posed to be getting up to 29 tomorrow...

Mr Grant
