Another week of swimming.

Another great week of swimming and today we learnt how to be safe in the water, in the river, in the ocean and when we are trouble in the water.

Next week we have swimming on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

A Special Visitor for Rimu

Today Rimu was lucky enough to meet Juliette MacIver an author who lives in Titahi Bay.  We have many of her books in our library and today she read us her new book about a Kiwi hunt that isn't even published yet!

We loved listening to her stories today.

Swimming Time!

A great first week of swimming for Room 5.

Next week we are swimming Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Remember your children need to bring:

  • Named Togs
  • Named Towel
  • Named plastic bag or swimming bag to hold clothes and their wet things
  • Goggles if you have them
You are welcome to come and watch at Cannons Creek Pool.  Room 5 begins our lessons at 1pm.

Ko Wai Au?

Who are we?

We have been learning about who we are in this time and place and today we gathered lots of things from around the playground and create a self-portrait using what we had found.

Look how creative we were!

Rimu Discovery Time

We love to discover in the Rimu block, there is always so much to do.


What an awesome time we have at PMP every week.

We are learning lots of new skills that help us in all areas of our learning.  

PMP is every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and we would love any mums, dads, aunties, granddads, cousins to come along and help us.  
We start at 2 and finish around 2:45 so come along and join in the fun with RIMU!!!


We were so lucky that Project Energizes Brianna came in to talk to us about the food that help make us Go, Grow, and Glow.

GO!    with 5 serving a day of grain foods

GLOW!  with 3 or more servings a day of vegetables and fruit

GROW! with 2 servings a day diary food

GROW! with 1 serving a day of meat.

Maths all about Room 5!

We have spent a lot of time getting to know each other in Room 5 and making new friends.  We thought we would like to find out some things about our friends and so we decided to ask our friends what their favourite things were.

We each drew pictures of our favourite toys, sports, colours and our favourite numbers!

We worked together in our shared numeracy books to sort, classify and display our results.
