Room 1A had the best year 6 Big Day Out last Thursday in Christchurch. We started off with laser tag, then off to the Christchurch Botanical Gardens for lunch then finished off the day with Mega Air. We couldn't have completed our day without our amazing parent support, thank you so much!

Term 4
Week 3

Hi everyone! What a busy week we have had in Week 3! On Fridays for the next 3-4 weeks we are getting our cricket skills up to date. Man some of us can throw and hit a ball!

We also had a trip to the Museum, Art Gallery, and the Library. The children really enjoyed using their artistic skills to create their own alien letter boxes and enjoyed learning all about the Māori alphabet.

Term 4
Week 2

WOW Term 4! This year has gone so fast but we still have a lot to complete before the end of the year which is looming fast. This week we have been super busy getting back into routines and writing detailed descriptions of ourselves through visual bibliography'. These will be on display this week so feel free to come in and have a look at them. The children have worked hard on providing details other than factual information.

We also has out Cluster Athletics Day on Tuesday. It was a great success and the children gave each event their best efforts and represented Netherby School with great PRIDE.

Term 3
Week 10

These last 2 weeks have been busy but so educational which has been awesome. We have been learning about similes and are in the midst of publishing our own simile poems, so watch the space!
For Week 9 and 10 we have had life Education at school. Room 1A have been learning about what drugs are harmful and what are helpful e.g. coffee and medicines. We were also looking at what the body does to rid us of bad toxins in our bodies and the effect they can have on our bodies and the environment.

We have also been working hard on creating some beautifully colourful Maori art for Maori Language Week a couple of weeks ago, don't they look effective!
