Sandpit

I like making big holes and sandcastles too. We have spades in the sandpit and what we like doing is like digging and pyramids. We work together, it is fun in there. We have to clean the sandpit we have brooms and we are lucky to have.
Aaria


 
We are so lucky to have a sandpit with spades  and pipes. We can make big holes and put sandcastles in it. It is so fun to having a sandpit. We are lucky to have water that we can make holes and put water in them and we can make rivers and we sometimes get wet! And sandy too! And we have to clean up and it is so hard to get off and it is kind of sore I make pyramid we work so hard and we work together. It is so fun making pyramids and at the end it looks cool as. When I just started I did not know there was a sandpit.
Benjamin


I like playing in the sandpit with my friends and in ruma tahi you get to do cleaning the sandpit. It would be cool if we get some buckets in the Sandpit.
Simeon
Ruma tahi is lucky enough to have a sandpit. At the start of the year we did not have spades but we did have brooms. We work together.
Robert




We are very lucky to have one sandpit with spades to dig holes.
Lachlan

We are very lucky because some schools don`t even have a sandpits. And if we have a sand pit we have to take care of the sand.

Kiarn




I like making power stations, we have to keep it clean if we don’t keep it clean we would not get spades.
Josh




In rūma tahi, we clean the sandpit, we have fun in it too. We clean the sandpit with brooms and spades. We create lots of stuff, we dig deep holes We make sand castles too. We use pipes to get the water into the sandpit, we get water out of the tap. We are lucky to have the sandpit.
Makaea


I am very happy to have a sandpit outside my classroom. What we need to do to respect our sandpit is to clean it but to have fun too. Because what you can do in the sandpit is digging holes building pipes and a lot more.
Aroha


I Like  making volcanoes and rivers in the sandpit because it is creative. Room one looks after the sandpit by cleaning it up with brooms and spades when i make a volcano i get sand and make a hill and put a hole through the mountain and  make it deep and put water in it and it explodes and the water pours down on to the ground i like making rivers because if you find a lid it floats on the water in the waves that tumble.
Toby

But wait there's more!

On Tuesday I snuck out of school earlier than usual to see the Room One basketballers play over at the ASB arena. A lot of skill in that team and heaps of positivity!




Well done, Josh, Louie and Lachlan! and awesome job coach Michelle!

Magical Mauao!

WOW!
Look what Olivia has been working on at home for the last few weeks! Photographed and written about by Olivia. Amazing, amazing, amazing.




Today I brought a project to school, it was Mount Maunganui. I made Mount Maunganui by getting a big board and placing it on something. Then you paint the board black and when the paint is dry you paint the board blue. When the paint is dry you have to get some fluff and then you make the fluff the same shape as Mount Maunganui. Once you have made the shape of Mount Maunganui you cover the fluff with newspaper and stick the newspaper on. Once the newspaper is dry you paint the whole thing green, once that is dry you do some trees with dark green, once that's dry you have to put rocks around it and then put a trig at the top and then the track. 

Next term you will hopefully be able to see it on display in the whare pukapuka :)

Saturday Sport

Every Monday morning I hear and read some awesome stories about what has gone on over the weekend. A big part of that is Saturday morning sport, I was lucky enough to see our Rippa Rugby lads and hockey crew playing at Blake Park a few weeks ago.






Well done guys. It felt really awesome seeing you all out there giving it your all!

Bucket fillers!

We are a room of bucket fillers! Bucket filling is all about making others feel good inside and making our class and school a great place to be. Well done Chevy has got the first sticker in Room One for helping Makaea out in the playground.

I am being a bucket filler. I am kind, and when Anahera fell over I helped her and when I was sad I find my best friend. Makaea and Lachlan were under the tree playing and I go to them and I said to them can I play and they said yes so I said thank you.
Rebecca-Marley

Bucket fillers help others. Bucket fillers are nice and kind and helpful and they use nice language.
Lachlan

I am a bucket filler and I help people who feel sad and I help people who are hurt. I say nice things when I say nice things I say.. Would you like to play with me?
Tyler

I am a bucket filler by helping people who are lonely. I am kind by sharing with my friends and I help strangers.
Kortez

There are 22 bucket fillers in Room 1 and here are some tips..
  • Talk nicely
  • Let people play if they are lonely
  • Hold the door open for others
Josh

In Ruma Tahi we are starting to learn to be bucket fillers and last time i fell on my knee on the ramp someone from my class helped me. Their names were Milan, Anabelle, Aroha and Makaea.
Chevy

I am a bucket filler because when Kiarn is sad I play with her. We play shark attack in the playground and at lunchtime I play with Louie and Toby in the sandpit. When someone else is sad I play with them, I say nice words.
Aaria

I am a bucket filler because I have filled up seventeen buckets. I know that is a lot it’s just because I’m nice, I talk nicely and I use my manners and I also cheer up people that are sad and I was just about to say to one of my friends that helped me. It was Leah, she helped me come back to class when I fell over. Camryn helped me a little by saying ‘are you alright?’
Olivia

Bucket fillers are kind. I am kind like the bucket filler queen because I helped someone when her brother was fighting. I helped Rebecca-Marley pick up her lunch when it dropped.
Anahera

I am a bucket filler. There are 21 bucket fillers in my class, we are bucket fillers because we use manners and help others in need and help if someone is hurt. You are not just a bucket filler if you do that you have to be nice all the time and even if it is not your friend you can still be nice to them.
William

I am a bucket filler when I look after my classmates. When people are sad I play with them.
Luke

I make people feel happy by being polite to people. When I was sad Anahera helped me and Robert.
Leah

I am going to be a bucket filler. I am kind but I want to be kinder. I am going to use good language. I am going to be nice at this school.
Logan

I am a bucket filler. Bucket fillers are friendly and kind and caring. Lots of people are bucket fillers. My best friend Louie is a bucket filler. If someone is lonely I will go and play with them and play the game they want to play. If someone is sad I will play with them.
Toby

To be a bucket filler you have to be nice and kind. Like I helped a boy in room three because his older brother was chucking sand. When Olivia wasn’t going to Oscar because she had netball practice I took Izzy down to Oscar. Because Olivia always takes Izzy down to Oscar. I am a bucket filler because I am nice and kind and careful to everybody.
Kiarn

To be a bucket filler sometimes you make mistakes but a bucket filler will do the right thing  and be nice and care if someone is hurt. Help them, don’t just stand there, help them and tell the truth, make our class the best one ever!!!!!!!!
Robert

In Rūma Tahi we are bucket fillers. Some of the things we do is help others in need, tell the truth. Bucket fillers do something to help people and fill their buckets with happiness. I helped someone when they got hurt.
Makaea

I want to fill other buckets and my bucket you can also be nice to naughty people if they are being meanies you can be nice to them so they will be nice to you. You will fill your bucket and their bucket, it is fun being a bucket filler. I want to be a bucket filler. I feel happy because I have done good things, it is fun. I want to fill 99 buckets.
Benjamin

If someone is lonely I will go and help them and I will play the game they want to play. I will play the game properly. When the bell rings and someone is sore I help.
