Rimu Trick Shot Challenge

Wacky Hair Day Google Meet

Wacky Hair Day Google Meet
After lots of discussion about the terrible state of our hair due to lockdown, we decided that we should do a wacky hair day and attend our Friday morning google meet with our wacky hair. Such fun and some fabulous creativity! 
How is your hair looking during lockdown? Have you taken part in a wacky hair day before?

Rimu Syndicate Easter Hunt

Today a number of students from our Rimu Syndicate took part in our Easter Scavenger Hunt. They needed to find items in or around their house that started with each letter of the alphabet. All items needed to fit into one square metre of space and then needed to be photographed with their faces in the pic too!

Lots of fun and great entires!

WaterSafeTraining session


What an exciting session this morning learning skills to keep ourselves safe in and around the water. The weather was a little chilly and the wet life jackets were cold to put on but lots of fun and learning took place.
Next week we look forward to our second session where we have to bring some old long pants and a long sleeved top or pyjamas to wear over our togs in the pool.
I wonder why we we need these...
Have you had water safety training this year? If so, what did you learn?

Welcome to Rm 8's 2020 Class Blog. 

This year we have 18 of the same students in Rm 8 so we are keen to keep adding to last year's class blog. 

Check out our camp in the post below. We went to 'The Farm' in Term 4, 2019 and had heaps of fun! Later this term we will be exploring some options for our 2020 Camp. 

We hope that you have had a fantastic start to the school year and we look forward to connecting with Rm 4 @ Point England School & Rm 8 @ Wesley Intermediate.
