Super heroes

We participated in a super hero parade and talked about what makes a hero. 

We decided that heros are: 
                               THINK OF OTHERS
                                                   HARDWORKING                                                                                           NEVER GIVE UP

We can all be heroes!!

Arrrrgh! Its Pirate Week

Owairoa School celebrated Book Week by having a Pirate theme.
Every class made it's own pirate ship including US!

We worked really hard, designing, painting and decorating our pirate ship.

We dressed up as pirates for a WHOLE WEEK! We sang pirate songs, danced pirate dances and read lots of pirate stories.



 We had a great time participating in the whole school pirate sword fight on the main field!

Olympic Fever

Term Three has been all about celebrating the RIo Olympic Games. We found out about some of the wonderful New Zealand athletes competing and watched them achieve their goals and go "Faster", Higher" and be "Stronger".

We had our own podium ceremonies to acknowledge achievements that we made at school.

We visited the students at the Pegasus Unit at Pakuranga College to take part in an Olympic Opening.

Potato People

We read the story "The Potato People" by Pamela Allen.
We made our own potato people and left them on display in our classroom for a long time.

We noticed that our potato people started sprouting stalks just like in the story.

We planted our potato people in our class garden  and forgot about them for a while.

 One day we decided to check our garden and we discovered that some new plants had grown.

What was growing?

We had a wonderful time investigating and pulling out our new potatoes.

We scrubbed the dirt off them. Then we sliced them up and fried them in our fry pan at cooking time.

YUMMY!   Potato chips!

                 We kept some potatoes so that we could make new potato people.
