Poppy Making

Today we had Judy come to school for the day and help us all make an ANZAC poppy. We talked about the significance of the Poppy first and the parts that make up a poppy.
They all look fantastic!

Nelson Museum

This afternoon we visited the Nelson museum to look into World War 1 and our history and involvement in it. We looked at morse code, the use of animals in the war, the Tapawera military camp set up and different artefacts to do with the war.

Survival swimming.

This week while we have been at the aquatic centre we have focused on a different survival swimming skill each day. The life jackets were our favourite! We had to jump into the water while we held onto our life jackets and then when we got into the water we had to turn onto our backs and scull back to shore (the end of the pool) We were all fantastic at turning onto our backs quickly so we could scull and kick to safety.

Swimming at the Aquatic Centre.

I This week we have started our swimming sessions at the Aquatic Centre. We are all placed into groups so that instructors can work closely with us to improve our swimming skills. We are all gaining more confidence in deeper water and working on some survival swimming skills each day.
