Kauri Sport

On Friday afternoon we went out for Kauri Sport. We played Kauri 3 in a game of Danish Rounders. For some, it was a new game and there were different rules.

We were impressed with how quickly we picked up the game, with some excellent catching and great running. Everyone gave it a good go! We were very happy to come away with a win with the promise of close competition in the future!

It was nice also to see so many Papakowhai T-shirts on and running shoes!

Buddy Reading

Kauri 4 have the responsibility of helping Rata 4 and Rimu 4 on wet lunchtimes. This means we send 3 students each wet morning tea and lunchtime to help the younger students in their lunchtime activities and join in with them in appropriate classroom activities.

On Friday we went up to Mr. Smith class in Rimu 4 and joined them for Buddy Reading which we will try and do every Friday to help each other in our learning.
Enjoy the picture.
