The term has begun and it has been a fantastic start. We are all excited to see what this term brings. We had many great times and learnt many new things during Anzac change over, which you got to see on Friday. Our topic this term is related to the Centenary, I Ngā Wā o Mua - Looking back at the past. How life use to be, clothing, schooling, home life, Matariki and transportation. We even have speakers to share their knowledge.
Here are just some of the things we have started in Room 1:
