Friday Afternoon Charades

Korimako is very lucky to have Miss Stewart, a student teacher in the Hub for 5 weeks. On Friday she organised a charades competition. She taught the students a few basic actions that would help them. Students then raced others through a list of movies until they reached the end.

Lunchtime Sport with Nate

We are lucky to have Nate come in to take groups for extra lunchtime sport. This week it was the turn for some Year 6 boys. They had a blast playing football and basketball in the gym.

Omaka Camp

We had the best time at Omaka Camp a few weeks ago. Students were pushed outside of their comfort zones, worked together to overcome challenges and most of all, had FUN!!!

Korero in Korimako

This term the Korimako students have been learning basic conversational Te Reo Māori. 
They have learnt the different ways to say hello, how to ask what someones name is, to ask where someone is from and to ask how some is. They have also learnt responses to these questions.

Here is a conversation two Korimako students had:

Tamariki Tahi - "Kia Ora" (Hello)
Tamariki Rua - "Tena Koe" (Hello to one person)

Tamariki Tahi - "Ko wai tō ingoa?" (What is your name?)
Tamariki Rua - "Ko Josh toku ingoa." (My name is Josh)

Tamariki Tahi - "Nō hea koe?" (Where are you from?)
Tamariki Rua - "Nō Ōtautahi ahau" (I am from Christchurch)

Tamariki Tahi - "Kei te pēhea koe?" (How are you?)
Tamariki Rua - :Kei te hiakai ahau." (I am hungry) 

To learn this, students firstly went on the Toku Reo website and took notes. Following this they spoke to other members of the hub.

Ferrymead - A Trip to the Past

As our Inquiry Topic is on Generational Change we visited Ferrymead Heritage Park to experience what life was like in the 1950s. One of the highlights was dressing up in what school students would have worn, everyone looked pretty cool.

Other activities included:
- learning about and playing with toys
- going to school in a 1950s classroom where you weren't allowed to speak unless spoken to
- playing Picnic games which were - washing clothes relays, sack races, egg and spoon races and a tug of war
- making scones in the kitchen

We had a great day out and saw all of the positives and negatives of living in each generation.

Although we didn't have an official Whanau Hui with the rest of the school, we had a quick award presentation for some high flyers.
Congratulations to these students!
