Amazing Rainbow Party!

In the Eager Elephants we try really hard to learn our Key Words. These help us learn to read and write. When we have learned our Key Words we get new words which are even trickier! 
Our families help us to learn our Key Words. 
We had a Rainbow Party to celebrate how smart we are! The Learning Lions and Rainbow Fish joined us. It was lots of fun and we got a certificate! WOW!

Fun in the city!

Eager Elephants go to the city!

Last week the Busy Bees went to Auckland City. 
First we got a bus to Mount Victoria in Devonport and had morning tea at the top of the volcano! 
We loved the views, climbing on the cannon and rolling down the hill! 
Next we walked through town to the beach. We played in the water, made sandcastles and played on the playground. Then we had a yummy ice-block in the sunshine! Finally we got the ferry to town and the bus took us back to school. We had an awesome day!

Our lovely 'Supporters Of Rowandale' have helped us raise lots of money!
We have used this to buy new resources for the classrooms.
Today we had an amazing time playing with our new pirate ship!
Look at the Eager Elephants creating and innovating! :)
