September 2018

Welcome to Kangaroo Class!  We have eight wonderful children in class, six boys and three girls.  Welcome to Ava who joins us newly into Cliffdale this year. Kangaroo class teacher is Tracy and the TAs are Kerrie, Mary and Pip.

It has certainly been a very busy start to the new year in Kangaroo Class with everyone beginning to settle in really well.

Everyone is really enjoying going kayaking on Thursday’s with Steve at North Harbour, we had quite an adventure on our first week!    Steve made sure we all had buoyancy aids and helmets on and then we set off in the double kayaks, all trying hard to have a go at paddling.  We saw lots of ducks and geese in the peaceful settings as we paddled our way around the lake.

On Team Day we all came to school with our Team colour t-shirts on and had a great time meeting all of the other children in our teams and making lots of colour themed art and playing games together.

On Monday afternoons, we go to the Mountbatten gymnastics centre. There is lots for us to do, but the trampoline and the fast track, which we can run down and jump into the foam pit, are particularly popular with everyone! 

It promises to be a very busy and exciting term together!
