Ice Skating!

What a great way to end the term!! Ice skating at Okauia Hall. We learned a lot about resilience and persistence, too. It's like the song says "I get knocked down but I get up again"- well fall down not knocked down but the same idea.
Thank you God for providing us with an inbuilt soft cushion to land on! We really needed it!

Who likes ice skating - We all do!!

Planting the winter crops

  It's time to change the crops and rotate the gardens for winter!

Steve showed us how to lay out the seeds and seedlings and we used the compost from our heap to add goodness into the soil.

This time we will have beans and kale, onions and carrots and the potatoes are still going strong.

Entertaining at Kingswood

Yesterday we walked down to Kingswood to entertain the residents. We sang  all sorts of songs like:

  • "The Ants go Marching"
  • "I've got that Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy"
  • "Fish and Chips"
  • "There's a hole in my bucket"
  • "He's got the whole world in his hands"
It was lovely to see them clapping and singing along. 
We look forward to seeing you again in June!

Bench Ball with Ben

 Great fun today with Ben learning to play Bench ball. The object of the game was to get all of your team on the bench. We had to work together to make sure that the younger ones were involved and got to the bench, too.
Thanks Ben for another great activity!
