Toroa's Terrific week!
Toroa class has been all go this last week or so... Cycle day, Have a Go sports day for the girls, Science week and camp prep!
You will have seen our photos from our Cycle day in last weeks newsletter. It really was a fantastic day with lots of great learning to help keep us safe while we enjoy being out and about. There was an amazing team of four legends from the
DCC that arrived to teach us. We went through a safety check first, then we practised skills on the tennis courts. We wove through cones, rode as slowly as we could, looked over our shoulder to identify different coloured cones being held up. We went to the field to practised controlled stops (and skids!). After that we rode out onto the road to practise signalling, riding around parked cars safely and giving way to traffic at the intersection of Conway and Greenacres Streets. It was really helpful to know the road rules that we went over in class on a PowerPoint. In the afternoon the sun was shining and we headed out onto the Cycle Path for a long ride along the harbour towards Portobello. The children absolutely loved this day and we learnt a lot about being safe on our bikes. Leah announced that it was the best day of school EVER!
On Friday last week I took the Year 5 and 6 girls to Logan Park with hundreds of other girls from across Dunedin for a day of sport! We had fun learning Cricket skills, Rugby Skills (with the help of Sarn's big sister) and Football skills. We rotated around stations at each sport. It was wonderful to see the girls getting stuck in, having fun and displaying their amazing skills! Thanks so much to the parents that helped with transport and to Raul and Andrea for staying to help for the day.
