Friday Music

Every Friday Chrissie and Paula come out to our school and teach music. We are learning to play ukuleles, a melodica, kazoos, recorders and drums.

We know how to sing (and play our instruments to) In The Jungle.

We are also composing our own song about growing fruit and vegetables to the tune of Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean.

First Aid Course

Kawana: When Sandra got here, she talked about what she does. Then she showed us how to leave your patient while you are ringing 111. When the patient is about to spew, you turn them. We did CPR on the mannikin babies and toddlers.

Pippa: When Sandra got to Pukeokahu, she showed us what to do when someone is vomiting, what to do when someone has a broken arm or leg and what to do when a person has a cut in their head.

Farewell to the Moyes

One day when I went to Bayden’s house we were playing halo and we did a trick on Lochy. We built a house  and there was a hole in our house. So we pretended to put a bomb down there and then Lochy pretended to explode.


Bayden me were playing on the tramp with Boomboom and Boomboom was knocking over all the shoes. Bayden made Boomboom do a flip and it was big. Then we went down to get the shoes and put them back on the tramp. Boomboom went wild – he is so good at knocking off shoes.


I remember on Kawana’s birthday, Bayden and Kawana went on the  tramp and they were rolling around. Then when they came inside they both had black noses. Kawana or Bayden put two hand prints on my door and it is still on there.


I remember Bayden when he always was nice and kind to all of us. I also remember on Bayden’s birthday, when we had a crazy Nerf gun fight and a lolly scramble after that. I really miss Bayden.


When Pippa and I played on Bayden’s Xbox with Lochy, I always lost in one of his zombie games. I always got shot by Bayden.


I will remember Bayden and Lochie because they are fun to play. I still remember playing on the xbox and I always lost and Bayden always won. At school he was so funny.


One day when I went to Bayden’s house. We went on the xbox 360 and we played Halo. Then we went on the tramp with Boomboom.


I know I am going to miss the big grin, your great writing and our discussions on life.


😭 😭 gonna miss them!! Jenna

We are blog explorers


This week we started to set up our own blogging websites with Papanui and Mangaweka schools. We were messaging each other for practise, using the new site, before we started to write to the other schools. We learnt about FaceTime, hangouts and blogger. Our next step will be to start an online book club with the  pupils at Papanui and Mangaweka.

On a bright, blue, sunny morning at Pukeokahu school Isla and Keeva brought some ingredients to make some curry from Japan.

First we………..

  1. Cracked four eggs in a bowl and whisked.
  2. Poured some flour on a plate.
  3. We placed some bread crumbs on a plate.
  4. We opened some chicken pieces,  then we placed one piece in the flour then in the whisked egg and then it was into the crumbs.
  5. While the chicken was getting crumbed we put the rice in a pot to cook.
  6. Then we made some sauce to pour on the rice.
  7. Then we cooked everything up.
  8. Then yum, yum, yum eating with our Japanese chopsticks.

It was delicious
