Today we had assembly in Tōtara 26. Miss Scadden and Mrs De Vries were sick, so we had Mrs Church and Mrs Evans with us. The T26 children organised and planned the assembly. Some year 4s got to sit on chairs with the parents. We had 2 announcers, Angus and Stella, our techie person was Harry and we had a great team presenting a play and everyone helped to set up the room.
Today in Tōtara we listened to a story about a school picnic and all the combinations that they children could choose for their ice cream sundaes. After that we discussed the fruit clues and had to use the process of elimination to solve the clues. Then we worked in groups and made our own combinations of children from each hub and one other combination to solve the hot chips, chocolate and number combination tasks.
Today we had dog safety. He took his dog to school.His name is Chris and his dogs name is Ludo. Now remember when a dog is on its own, leave it alone! And don't tease dogs. If we got an answer right you get a lollypop. And Chris showed us how to be safe near a dog that had gotten out of his territory after many years of teasing. IT WAS VERY FUN!!!!!!!!

What excellent timing! With our shared novel Tuesdays at the Castle coming to an end we were excited to find out about this event that the Christchurch City Library is running on Saturday. It sounds like it will be perfect for everyone in Tōtara who wants to have some fun based on medieval themes.

On Monday, Kim from the Outreach Programme came to talk to us. She talked to us about the awesome range of resources that you can borrow from the public libraries, some great events that you can be part of and shared some really interesting books with us. If you don't have a library card, we strongly recommend you fill in the membership form that was sent home.
This week we have enjoyed having a very cute wee visitor to our hub. Mrs Simmons has been helping a friend with her rescued kitten by feeding it every 2 hours. The kitten was found in the middle of the Leeston-Rakaia Road and was very lucky not to have been run over. She seems to like roads - as evidenced by this photo taken on a visit to Tōtara 25. Now that she is bigger she won't need to come to school but we will be following her progress and adventures with the Bagshaw family.
