The Last Swim.

Kauri Team went to Matangi school for swimming sports in week 7 - our last school swim for the year.

Before I got in I felt nervous because there were heaps of bees and wasps swarming around the pool. (Lucy)

I thought the water would be hot, but it was cold when I got in! (Hussain)

When we were coming from the bus I was excited but when I saw the pool I was nervous because I thought it might be deep at the shallow end.  (Mele)

When I got in the second time I was climbing along the rail with my hands trying to get all the way to the deep end. (Lance)

When I got to the pool I thought the deep end wasn't that deep but when I got in it was very deep.  (Bradley)

I felt scared and nervous before the race but once I did it I enjoyed it. (Chloe)

Saalihah and I thought we would lose because everyone was so fast. (Nandani)

I was surprised to get into the finals for one of the races. (Rebecca)

I thought I was going to drown in the deep end so I was glad when I could touch the bottom
again. (Felicia)

I held the side of the pool when I went to the deep end so I wouldn't drown. (Saalihah)

Learning to Be - Relating to others

Here is our classroom treaty.  Part of the Hamilton East School toolkit is 'Learning to be'.  Our treaty reminds us of how to get on with each other so we can all enjoy learning at Hamilton East School.

We are showing how we can work in groups to achieve our goals.  Here you can see we used our bodies to make letters of the alphabet.  Can you guess what letters we are?
