Chick chicks everywhere!

WOW how amazing to see so many of our chicks already having hatched today. We all arrived this morning and saw that 7 out of 10 of our eggs had hatched and we have 7 lovely and fluffy chicks. 

Our 7th egg hatching and his buddy waiting for him.

Our chicks in their brooder all snuggling together under the light.
Fruit snack today was spent around the brooder which was way more exciting than eating out in the sun.

Painting our chick houses

Today our eggs arrived and everyone was very excited to see them and look after them. We decided today was the perfect day to paint and finish our houses so they will be ready when they are hatched. 

Teuaki, Gaylene and Mohit were all working so well together on each section of the house so they all could have a turn at painting.

Kali and Hafsa had some parts of their house that needed fixing and they worked together to solve the problem.

Cross Country Practice.

What a wet and windy day for a cross country practice. It was super to see everyone trying their best and running 2 whole laps to practice for cross country.

Norman followed by Reiko were supporting each other for both laps around the field.

Well done Jashaia you showed resilience by keeping on going even when it was getting hard.

Raad did well running in his gumboots which were the best kind of shoes for this wet day.

Making house for our chicks

Next week is going to be very exciting with Bishop Class getting 10 eggs that we can watch hatch into chicks. Today we decided to get creative and start making little houses that the chicks can stay in while they are with us. 

Jashaia is helping his group create an outside area for the chicks as they need a place to go outside so they can get some sunshine.

We had a very cool visitor from Pohatu class Gemma come and visit us to check out the houses we were making.

Amanda also came to see what her brother Aaron and the rest of his group were up to as well. They are creating a 2 storey house.

Marwah and her group have a house that has a little playhouse inside for the chicks to be in as well!

Raad was very thoughtful to add an extra large tv for his chicks so they won't get bored! Good thinking.

Lets make a movie!

This term we are going to be creating stop motion movies with Room 9. This week we got into our groups with our buddies and started planning our first stop motion movie. It was so fantastic to see our buddies teaching us so much about planning and making a stop motion movie!


Today we had our first lesson in gymnastics. It was so much fun!

It was nice to meet our instructor who taught us lots of new moves.

Go super Jesse! 

It is nice to see everyone waiting their turn.
