WOW!!!  Term 4 has started fast and exciting!!!  This term is filled with all sorts of exciting and inspiring events - as well as testing and report writing!!  This week we have had an exciting Tuakana Teina buddy session with Room 1 and Mr Spicer - starting our display work (see here for more details as the very cool display (prepared by our clever Mrs Rendell :) ) - takes shape!!) Here are some photos of us working with our buddies:

We have started athletics training ready for our Stanley Avenue Athletics Day in Week 4.  Because we have limited time to train with Camp in Week 2, we are training in two different sections:  Relay, Running, and Fitness activities = Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and field events:  High jump, shot put, discus and long jump = Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.  Here are some photos of us training this week in our house groups:

Next week, week 2, we are going on our first ever Stanley Avenue School Middle Syndicate Camp!! :) Year 4, 5 and 6s will be going to the awesome Lakes Ranch Camp in Rotorua on Tuesday.  Year 4s will stay one night and return to school Wednesday evening, while everyone else will stay on and return to school Friday afternoon.  Loads of cool activities and challenges are planned, including:  buma trail, night glow worm walk, mud run, kayaking and much more!  We have been working in our camp groups this week organising our camp journals and our camp skits.  We are really excited (and nervous, but more excited!) to go on this amazing experience.  Thanks to Miss T and Mr Spicer for all their organising of the camp - they have put in a lot of hard work and time finalising every detail to make this camp truly fantastic for us all.  Year 4s will carry on with camp based activities and challenges at school Thursday and Friday too :)

Here are some photos of the whole Middle School Syndicate in 'camp planning mode':

And on Thursday we had our school photos.  This year we had the class photos taken outside, it was a lovely 'fresh' day, and we had a beautiful gust of spring blossoms swoop over us as we were having our photos taken - added an awesome, cool touch to the moment :) . Here we are getting ready for our class photo:

Have an awesome, fun and safe Labour Weekend everyone - the joke of the week is from Alize:

What did the sushi say to the bee?
- Wasabi (whats up bee) :)
