Hi my  name is Kakala and my buddy Jibran.
We are this weeks bloggers.
Last week Room 5 were playing Ripper Rugby 
with the coach's Jamie and Sal. On Thursday we played a game where you get a buddy and put a cone in the middle of the two players and we had to try and get the cone before your buddy.
After that we played a game where you run around and rip people's flag's and call out RIP.
ZZZZZZ after a while it started to rain but even the rain couldn't stop us from having fun.The next day Room 5 played the real game. Here are some photo's.

This term our school inquiry is ‘Our Choices Impact Our Future.’ Through this topic we are encouraging the children to consider what it means to be a good citizen and how we can apply that in our school and community.

To encourage our students to think about our school and some of the wider issues in
we cordoned off our court, swimming pool and playground areas to ‘set the scene’
and encourage students to ask deeper questions about how our choices impact our future.
This has provoked some further questions and reflection amongst our students,
whanau and members of our wider Manurewa community.

I would like to confirm that this learning scenario has been set up as a part of our
students learning.
Each class will decide on a social action that they will engage in to further promote
their classes learning.

Some examples may include;

  • Investigating Housing options for our growing community
  • Identifying key issues in our community
  • Supporting members of our community
  • Investigating organisations that support our community

Welcome to Term 2. I hope you and your child/ren have had a fun, yet relaxing holiday. It feels great having all your amazing children back for another great term of fun and learning.



Please ensure that your child spends at least 15minutes completing their set on Mathletics/Studyladder only if you have a device/internet.

Students are encouraged to take home readers and read for at least 10 minutes. It would be great, if possible, to listen to your child read or ask them a few questions after reading.

Sandwiches and a healthy snack.

The school has second hand uniform for sale so feel free to come on and purchase these at a reasonable price.

If you have any queries please feel free to come and see me.
