Catchy songs for maths learning

These are some of the YouTube videos we've been watching to help with some of our maths. I can hear the kids singing them while doing their work, even though we listened to them almost 2 hours ago!

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

Yay we won the Best Box Prize for our "Champions" themed Duffy Box.

The children all helped to decorate the box by colouring in pictures of trophies, medals, and other pictures related to being a champion. Miss Sampson arranged the pictures on the box.

Our prize was to get our photo taken with news reader celebrity Niva Retimanu and Hamish Quinn from TR Trucks who sponsor our Duffy books in schools.

The winning box!

Sight word champions!

A big congratulations goes out to the following students who have learnt all their sight words by dedicating themselves to practising at home and at school. They have now moved on to the next level from where they started which is awesome! Well done parents for helping them to practise at home:


Special mention also goes out to the following students who are so, so close to making it to the next level:


Keep up the great work and keep learning those words!
