Atawhai shared their speeches this week.
Your teachers have been so impressed by the effort every one of you have put into your speeches.
We have watched you research, draft, write, re-craft, discuss, practise and present your work.
We know that it is not easy standing in front of a crowd of people and speaking for a whole 3 minutes but you have all achieved success.
We have loved watching you develop and grow in confidence
Two or three people from each literacy group were chosen to share in the LC2 competition.

In Maths, we have been learning all about cardinal directions. Mrs Walsh lead an exciting lesson where we were able to go outside and explore the different directions.
Never Eat Soggy Weetbix - a great rule to live by (or just to remember!)
|Angus and Vili are deciding which direction to go.|
Some of us did---some have a long way to go!
