Team Work

Today Nicole from No Child Left Inside brought along the 5-legged racing equipment. Check out the problem solving skills, teamwork and spills from Kōtuku. Great to see some leadership arising, encouragement for each other, and some kids even took a moment to make sure everyone was ok.
Great work!

2018 - here we come!

It's nearly time to get underway for 2018.

It's been a scorchingly hot summer, so we'll be making the most of the pool.  
  • Bring your togs and towel every day. If for some reason you are unable to swim, you'll need to bring a note.
  • Also, make sure you have your hat each day.
  • Stationery will be organised at school during the first week.
Bring a tip-top attitude, ready to work hard and learn new things.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 7th February.

Parachute fun with Nicole from 'No Child Left Inside'.



Plastic Business

Kōtuku have been researching how plastic affects our environment and what we can do about it. We plan to gift each school family a 'kit' of items that eliminate the use of plastic. Here are some action shots of our productivity.

Bubble Art

This afternoon with our tuakana teina time we did a collaborative piece of art. We created bubbles because we try to keep everybody's bubble afloat rather than burst them.

String Shapes

Today we made shapes out of string. We got put into groups of three or four,  then we got a piece of paper with some shapes we had to try to make. Some of the shapes were a square, cube and a star. The 3D  shapes were hard and some of the group did not complete them.

Hula Hoop Activity NCLI

Today we had No Child Left Inside but it was raining so we did it inside. We did a really cool activity where you had to make a hula hoop house and crawl through it. Also we made a huge tower with three on top of each other.
