Yesterday we had our first swimming lesson at the Manurewa Pools. We got to take the community bus down from school. Our lesson was in the small teaching pool inside, we had to do an assessment to find out which groups we were in out of 1,2 or 3. We got spilt up into our groups and taught different things like floating on our stomachs and backs, kicking and starting to use our arms.
We had so much fun all together in the pool learning new things!
Every week on Tuesday morning at 10am (except Tuesday 5th August) we will be going to the pools to have another lesson on swimming and water safety. We cant wait to see how much we have improved by the end!
Here are a few snaps and videos from our first lesson!
After the zoo the Champion Kids have been learning about the animal's we saw, so we thought that we might make some house's for them and this is what they look like.
First we got some cardboard boxes and started putting little bits of paper and crafts into them to create the insides of the houses, they looked awesome. Then we thought 'how are we going to make it even better' so we decided to use the dye to help colour them and make them more interesting for the animals to live in.
Here are some photos of our houses during and after the process.
We were very lucky to be able to have a man come into our school and show us a few things that we can cook at home to help! We went to the school garden and picked some herbs and then we made silver beet and apple crepes. Most of us didn't like them but it was funny watching him make them and the faces people pulled while they ate them.
