Kloe Palmer comes to Ako Ngatahi

Today we were lucky enough to have Kloe Palmer from Three News come and speak to us. She spoke to us about what it is like to be a news reporter and how she does her job.

Head Phone Storage Solution

This afternoon our new head phones arrived.  We had a problem, how and where will we store them so they are safe, easily accessible and won't get tangled or damaged. 
We decided to come up with some storage solutions in small groups! 
We had to write our ideas down then draw a diagram!  


Today we tried skipping for the first time this year

Mission impossible 2015!

Today the Trekkers were recruited on a special mission to learn, locate and destroy terrosum, an evil villain determined to brainwash children around the world, destroying their ability to solve mathematics problems! Children will work in teams of 2 or 3 to solve maths challenges in order to gain clues to find the location of terrosum.  Good luck with your mission!
