We read lots of books on our own, with our friends and with other students around the school. We made reading fun by exploring books with drama, creating art work and reading around the school. Reading under the trees is lots of fun. Where do you like reading?

BP technology challenge

Our school had a fun filled day of challenging tasks. The students were separated into mixed level groups from year 0 to year 6 in their house groups, tui, weka, fantail and kea.

The focus of the day was team work and building the house spirit. Each challenge was scored out of 30 with points given for team work, design and construction.

Have you tried a BP technology challenge? How did you find the challenges? We found they were all fun and challenge although some were easier than others.
