Last Thursday was race relations day. Along with the rest of the school we celebrated all of the different cultures at Sunnybrae. We dressed up in our national costumes, played games from different countries and made arts and crafts. Some of our Teacher Aides even shared their cultures too.
In Room 4 our cultures are from all over the world, Chinese, Indian, English, Italian, Cook Islands, Samoan, Maori and New Zealand. It has been fun to learn about our differences, similarities and cultures.

 We have been learning how to swim each afternoon. We are able to get in and out of the pool safely, feel confident in the water, put our heads under, use a board to float and kick and some of us are just learning to use our arms to do freestyle. On Thursday afternoon we all participated in the Junior Swimming Carnival.
It has been nice to cool down on the hot afternoons. Look at the photos of us enjoying the water.

“I can write !”

This week we have been reading the big book
 “I Can Write.”  It's about all the different ways you can write words. We decided we would have a go at writing our words in different ways. We used chalk and water on the concrete, our whiteboards and paint. We got lots of practise at writing words and……
we had lots of fun too.
