Kereru Class got two lovely surprises this morning!
Katie has been busy boiling and decorating eggs and brought some for all her classmates. They looked fabulous and tasted delicious!
Toby was a busy baker at the weekend. He baked scrumptious ANZAC cookies and shared them with his classmates.
Thank you Toby and Katie!  
We are very lucky to have kind, thoughtful people like you in our class.

Star of the Week!

Well done to Khara for being our Week 8 'Star of the Week'
Khara has a big responsibility looking after our devices, making sure they are charging throughout the day and then putting them all away at the end of the day.
Great effort Khara!

Car Stopping Demonstration

Today we went to see a car demonstration to see how fast cars go and how dangerous they can be. 
We had to yell 'STOP' so the car would brake and not drive over the cardboard people.
By Sarah and Sophie
At high speeds the car took longer to stop.
By Isaac.
At 50kph it almost reached the people and at 60kph the car hit the cardboard people.
By Romeo.
I learnt that the road isn't a playground and you have to be careful. If you are in a car you need to tell the person in the car if they are speeding if you think they're going too fast.
By Amy.

St Patrick's Day!

Today is St Patrick's day and in Kereru Class we had a wee treat waiting for us when we got to school (snakes, get it?)
Some of us wore green to celebrate St Patrick's special day. We did some activities and watched a fun video about St Patrick.
Here are some photos and the video.
