Te Roopu Koru Tennis on 10.3.15


           I liked tennis. We bounced the ball on the racquet.    by Jessica Nicol



    I learned to play tennis with Tom. We bounced the ball up and down. It was very easy. I liked 
    playing tennis. I loved tennis and we pretended to make the ball be a car and the bat was the road.

    We went to tennis. I liked tennis because we got to spin the ball around the racquet. Also we         bounced the ball up and down. Also we threw the ball up and then we let it bounce on the ground once. Then we caught it.        by Luca Hall

Inquiry Clubs started on 3.3.15

As part of our Term 1 Inquiry topic the Koru Team children have been given an opportunity to choose to be part of one of the following six clubs on Tuesday afternoons for the next three weeks.
They continued on Tuesday 10 March. The final session will be held on 17 March.

After the first session, the children got into their club groups and worked cooperatively to come up with a group poster. 

The next day they used the ideas on these posters to help do some individual writing about the clubs that they attended.


On Tuesday afternoon I went to room 14. First we listened to some music. Then we shook the maracas. I felt sad because I wanted to play the drums.   by Lachlan Frost
