THIS WEEK IN REVIEW

MOTAT Trip - In week 6, Rooms 4,8,9,10,26,27 went to MOTAT and in week 7 Rooms 1,2,3,5,6,7 also went. Below are some stories written by children who attended the trip.

In the morning I woke up at six am just because of the trip! When Fraiser told us we were going on the tram we were so excited. We decorated a Christmas tree. We made candles for other people. The village was really tricky. The mirror maze was really confusing. Michael bumped into walls, I went in the wrong direction and Eason bashed his way through! When I saw the tram it was as green as grass. It was a fabulous time! By Marcus


Yesterday morning I was so excited because my class was going to MOTAT. Also room 10 and 9 were coming in the bus with us. When we got to MOTAT RJ took us to the mirror maze and she took us to the old school. After that room 4 went to a classroom. Over there we all made a candle to someone. Then we went on the tram. The tram was as slow as a snail. When we came back to school I was very tired. By Vacha.


Fireworks acrostic poem By Vivienne Hanna

Flaming fireworks, flashing sparks exploding way up high,

Invisible fairies aiming their bombs for the ground then disappearing into the dark and gloomy night.

Roaring rockets breaking into thousands of tiny glittering pieces.

Enormous explosions everywhere I look.

Wishing I could fly with the fireworks but it didn’t work.

Over the tree tops many colous jumping away.

Red, orange, yellow and lots of other colours all shoot up at different times.

KAPOW, kaboom, Crash, bang, boom. Flying sparks everywhere all making a lot of noise.

So much noise makes me scream! That’s the best night I’ve ever seen!

Botanic Gardens Visit by Paris

Last week on Friday it was Room 16 and 17’s trip to the Botanic gardens. We first got into our groups. The parents were Mandy, Kathrine and Phil. I was in Mandy’s group. When we were all in our groups we headed for the bus. I sat at the back. As soon as we got there we had morning tea, it was yum! After morning tea we met two lovely ladies named Trish and Marian. My group strolled with Marian to somewhere quieter to talk. We talked about the life-cycle of a group of animals needing, helping and eating each other. Then we went for a walk around the Botanic gardens. Later we made compost and learnt about the greens and the browns. The greens were the dead plants and the browns were the paper. The only paper you are not aloud is the glossy paper because glossy paper has poisonous ink in it. After the composting we washed our hands. Next we went to the shaded area to have lunch. “Crunch! Crunch!” I munched. In the afternoon my group had free time. We all went to the African garden. Then went to feed the ducks. At the end of the day we went to wait for the other groups. Then we came we went back to school. I was really tired but I had a fantastic day!

Newsletter Term 4 Week 5 - Friday 12 November 2010

Value Focus for next week: Quality / Respect

FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Kia ora tatou katoa, Talofa, Malo e lelei, Bula vi naka, Kia orana Nga mihi nui ki a koutou, Namaste, Nihao, He mihi mahana ki a koutou katoa! Greetings to you all.

We have just completed Week 5, another week closer to Christmas. Everyone is busy organizing things for the finish of the school year.

Staffing - At the end of this year we will be saying farewell to two of our valued staff members. Mrs Kerry Tetupu will be taking maternity leave and Miss Georgina Tizard will be taking up a teaching position at Kings School. We wish them well in their new adventures, and thank them for all their wonderful contribution to Elm Park School. They will both be greatly missed. We have appointed two new staff members to these positions for 2011.

Recycling - We now have a large recycling bin positioned by the School Hall. We would love you to place clean newspaper, magazines and folded cardboard in this bin as the school will earn some money for resources from your contribution. Please make sure that there is no plastic, glass or rubbish placed in the bin.

Collaborative Conferences - Just a reminder about these student led conferences taking place on December 1 & 2 .
This is the final opportunity to discuss your child’s progress for the final part of the year and to collaboratively decide what their goals will be for 2011. If you have any other issues to discuss you will need to make another time with the teacher as we only have allocated 15 minutes for each meeting.

Class Placement for 2011 - The students will be told at the end of the year which class room they will be in for 2011. They will have an opportunity to meet the teacher and fellow students on the last day of school this year.

Last day of Term - Just a reminder that school finishes at 1.00 pm on Wednesday 15 December 2010

CHILDREN ARRIVING LATE AT SCHOOL – School starts promptly at 8.55 am NOT 9 am. Children are expected to be in their classroom and ready for the school day by 8.55 am We have a number of children arriving late on a daily basis. This is not acceptable and we ask parents to make an extra effort to have children at school on time please.

HATS – All children are required to wear hats in Term 1 and Term 4. We have a large number of children in the playground without hats. We have lots of outside activities during the school day. It is important that all children have hats. Children without hats are required to stay in the shade area during morning tea and lunch. No Hat, No Play.

SWIMMING – A reminder that swimming is part of the curriculum for years 4, 5 and 6. It is not an optional subject. Unless there is a doctors certificate / medical reason, all students are expected to participate.

Have a good weekend.

This Week in Review

CHOPPER CHALLENGE CORRECTION – The information provided on the top of the Chopper Challenge Sponsorship Form was incorrect. The helicopter flight is for 8 children only, not family members. We apologise for this misunderstanding.

CAKE STALL - Thank you for participating in our bake sale on Tuesday 9th November. We fundraised over our goal which was $75. Our final outcome was $114.60, we were really amazed that we raised that much. Emily thought that we would raise $20 from the bake sale, Anna thought we would raise $55 and I thought we would raise around our goal. We would like to thank the students and teachers who bought and baked the goodies. The Save the Kiwi fund will be able to make a difference with your help. Yours Sincerely, Anna, Emily and Jordan Room 20.


TE TUHI TRIP - On Wednesday 10th November Room 21 walked to Te Tuhi Art Centre to view the exhibition by Phil and Galia Kollectiv. The exhibition was focused on their use of black and white in Film and Art. We enjoyed going into the Dark Room and watching the black and white film. We thought it was very weird but quite fascinating too.

After the exhibition we went to the Workshop with Hamish to use black and white to create a self portrait. We made a 2D and also a 3D self portrait. We used polystyrene and paint to create our art work. We had a fantastic time and can't wait till we go back again. We recommend this Exhibition to everyone.

PUSH PLAY DAY – On Tuesday 9th November, Elm Park School had Push Play Day and it was awesome. Luckily for all of us it was sunny. We all wore our house coloured clothes and accessories. Our house groups are Matai which is yellow, Rata which is red, Rimu which is blue and Kauri which is green. We all got changed and walked to the place where our houses were meeting and got into our groups. We all had tons of fun doing all sorts of activities like soccer, octopus, kiwi cricket, parachute, relays, water gun fights, Jump Jam, skipping and heaps more! It lasted from 9.00 – 12.30, after it we were all very tired and puffed out! By Jarvis and Rishad

ROOM 10 HAD FUN ON PUSH PLAY DAY






On Tuesday it was Push play day at Elm Park School. I liked playing rob the nest. You had to steal an egg from the nest. You had to gather a lot of balls by stealing them from other people. I loved playing games on Push play day. My favourite game was Sneaky Samurai.

Giselle

I couldn’t wait for Push Play day and finally… it was here. We got to play lots of games like stuck in the mud, rocket tag and even duck, duck, goose. My favourite one was an obstacle course because we got to have lots of exercise and fun as well. My second favourite game was stuck in the mud because it was really funny. When we moved between activities we sang our cheer. “I can’t wait for push play day next year,” I said to my friends.

Ethan

I couldn’t wait for Push Play day and finally it was Push Play day when I got to school. I was so excited that I could not wait to get started. I got changed and the bell rang for us to go in our groups. I played many games. Finally, it was long jump time. And guess what? I beat a senior. Wow! Rata won with the most points at the end of the day.

Newsletter Term 4 Week 3 - Friday 29 October 2010

Value Focus for next week: Initiative & Perseverance

FROM THE PRINCIPAL
I trust everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather during the Labour weekend holiday. It was certainly refreshing to see the sun for so many days in a stretch. Just a reminder that children are required to wear sunhats this term.

ERO has been and gone and to date they were very complimentary about our school learning and physical environment, staff teaching and children’s learning. We look forward to the written report soon.

We are now back into full swing with all the activities that will take us to the end of 2010 school year. Many groups of children have been on trips to the Orakei Marae, Tiritiri Matangi Island, Botanic gardens, the Zoo and many more are planned.

The children are already practicing for the end of year concert which is at the end of Week 9. Collaborative conferences will be held in Week 8, information to follow regarding this.

Last night was the ICT Cluster share evening with Shelly Park School, Cockle Bay School, Botany Downs School and Elm Park School. It was a celebration of all that we have achieved over the past three years with the support and guidance from Ms Belinda Johnston, our ICT facilitator and the ICT lead teachers in each school. Well done to everyone for all your hard work. The staff and children have benefited enormously from this professional development funded by the Ministry of Education. We have been very fortunate to have received this financial support.

FOCUS ON CHILDREN
Room 27 has been working with Room 26 and Room 4 to create a beautiful new garden made from recycled materials. We have enjoyed painting the tyres and filling the garden with soil. This week we are focussing on planting. We have been learning all about what types of plants will grow in the shade. Below are some stories we have written about our project.



Before our garden was ugly and all the plants were dead but now our garden is getting better because we are putting tyres in and it makes it better.
Eli

Before our garden was ugly because plants died but then we did more research. We made more colours so it would look beautiful.
Gordon

Before our garden was muddy. Now our garden will be special and it will be beautiful and a good place.
Senaya

Before our garden was ugly and terrible because nobody was caring for it.
Himeth

Before our garden was yucky and horrible, muddy and shady. Now it is a lovely and pretty garden because there are colourful tyres and our garden will be played in.
Jennifer

We have painted some tyres to put in the garden. Now our garden looks beautiful.

Girl Guides Attempt To Break The World Record For The Longest Bra Chain
As part of Girl Guiding New Zealand, Shannon, Emily and Jordan are collecting old and unused bras to participate in breaking the work record for the longest bra chain. New Zealand Girl Guides are doing this for these 3 reasons:
1. To raise awareness of breast cancer
2. So the bras can be donated to woman in third world countries that can’t afford them
3. To beat Australia who hold the world record at the moment.

If you could please put them in the black bag in the office. Thank you, this will be a big help for us!
