Dr Seuss Fun!

Over the past two days, the students who were not at athletics got to participate in a Dr Suess themed day.

The juniors wrote a story based on "To Think I saw it on Mulberry Street." Then they illustrated and green screened it to produce this video:

Shotover Primary School Cross country by Camella

Last Friday on 11th of August a fun race for 400 children was held in the school grounds and the surrounding area.

Everyone from 5 year olds to 13 year olds ran and watched the race.

It was so much fun watching the kids and the children enjoyed the race. This activity should be encouraged in every school.

This fun run or race should be done regularly in school and everyone should be part of it, even if watching the race.

Who is the criminal at Shotover School?

Last Monday, Mr Brown and Miss Luchia's Maths groups came back from assembly to a crime scene.

It has been our mission over the last few weeks to study the evidence and go around the school measuring the height of the mentors and their footprints. 
We now have all of our evidence and will work on matching up our measurements from the mentors with our criminals.

Watch this space!!

Coconut Experience

At literacy time, we have been having some great experiences through our shared reading with our big books. With our book 'Island Hopping', we enjoyed the page below.

As we enjoyed this part of the book so much, we decided we would like to get a real coconut and try and crack it open like they do on the island's.

Here are some photos of us (Miss Emily) cracking a coconut open. We were then lucky enough to taste the coconut milk and try some of the flesh.
