Lining up ready to hit the ball, I was scorching hot! What a day for cricket!!

This morning Tim Richards from Manawatu Cricket came to teach us some skills about cricket.  First we did some relays to get warmed up!  Next we threw a cricket ball up in the air then caught it in a cup before bringing it to our chest.  We tried to clap while the ball was in the air then catch it before it drops to the ground.  We continued  with this by trying to add another clap each time.

It was then time for batting!  It is important to use the flat side of the bat, get your body sideways, keep your writing hand closest to the bottom of the handle, take a step to transfer your power to the ball, and keep your eye on the ball.

Lastly, we used the skills that we learnt to play non-stop cricket!

We want to play cricket next year!

We Rock 'n' Roll at School

In the Dream Team every morning for 3 minutes we have been learning Rock 'n' Roll. We are in our beginning phase of learning.  So far we have learnt the basic step.  Without learning we won't be able to do any stylish moves.  Today was the first day that we practised our step with a partner.  We can't wait to learn more!

This week we have been learning to make step by step instructions

Look at what Michael did at home to present his instructions for how to make a burger.

We love how many details and tips he gave!

 What an excellent job Michael. Yum, I bet everyone feels like burgers now.

What Tui has to say about Reading Theory:

  • It encourages me to read at night every night
  • It is really fun
  • I learn lots of different types of stuff like about underwater, butterflies and nature and heaps more topics. I love them!
  • When you read them and find tricky words I like putting the words in my spelling book to practise
  • The questions are really challenging because sometimes I have to go back and forth to the passage
  • I have to read the questions carefully
  • It is fun to move up the levels
  • The levels are challenging for me. Once I go along them they get harder for me. I haven't gone down the levels yet and I am not going to!!!
  • Kate, Lydia and I always talk about Reading Theory

Thank you Tui for your reflective comments about our new reading site.
