Middle's News

By Sarah Gilbert | Posted: Tuesday August 29, 2017

Lights, camera, action! This week has been movie mayhem. The classes in the middles have either spent time filming scenes for their movie item or working hard to prepare their scripts, work out their camera angles and their position for shooting the movie.

On Tuesday, Room 3 spent time at the Botanical Gardens to film their scene. We were very lucky to have a nice sunny day and a playground for time in between our scenes.  Thank you to our parent helpers who came along!

Last week we had our parent meeting for Tirohanga, thank you to those who attended. If you were unable to make it and you would like to come as a parent helper that is fine. Please remember to check that you are receiving emails from your child’s classroom teacher so that you don’t miss any important information or online forms.

Sport Otago recently held a ‘Have a go day’ at the Edgar Centre. Our children had a go at touch, athletics, futsal, Tball, tennis and cricket. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and the opportunity to try a sport they have not played before. Our parent helpers were fantastic, they did a great job of looking after, supporting and encouraging our children which was noticed by the Sport Otago team.

Room 6 were very excited this week when three players from the Otago Rugby team came to teach skills and answer some questions about themselves and their careers.  It was a great learning opportunity, and the children were enthusiastic participants!

John Neumegen gave Room 3 a fabulous tour of the Art Gallery. The children looked at a number of art works and contemplated the concept of light as a focal point. The children then created their own silhouette artworks which look fantastic. At school the children created another silhouette artwork which was one of their options for calendar art.

The calendar art for this year has been completed and is on display in classrooms or the landing.
