In action

Hologram fun!

A great activity on a hot afternoon...

Handmade plastic pyramids and hologram clips on youtube.

They're a bit tricky to see on camera, but easily seen in real life. We had enough plastic to make 1 between 2. Hopefully we'll be able to make some mini ones as well so the kids can bring some home.

Jump Rope for Heart

What a busy yet fun morning! There are some very tired students heading home today...

I was posted at the 'Cross the Swamp' station and due to time and numbers I didn't get to see the whole class come through. Therefore not all kids are pictured, sorry.

Discovery fun!

Joshua and Dane spent 45 minutes (entire Discover time) today developing this marble run. They never gave up. It took great perseverance to complete it.

Rimu Hui Certificates and Discovery Time

I remembered to take a photo today of the Rimu certificates!

Well done to Maddie and Toryn for this week's awards.

Rimu 6 was open for home-made marble runs during Discovery today.

Awesome job guys!
