This week was built of four days of learning.
WAITANGI day was a day we learnt about WHY? we celebrate February 6. A lot of us children really didn't know why we celebrated this day, we thought it was a day spent with family at home or just going to families to have a BBQ. We learnt about how Waitangi was such a 'big deal' and we used that through our own Hub Treaty. We now know its a major promise to uphold and to believe in it with our all.
This week we started our Swimming programme. We were able to go on the bus provided by the Manukau Council to take us to our local swimming pools.
This is the checklist of achievement in the water. The Swimming Instructor teaches us and then we see if we can achieve it confidently. We will know if we have achieved our checklist at the end of 7 more weeks. We are very excited and really enjoyed our first lesson of assessment. We were put into groups to see how confident we can swim. Next week lets see what we will be learning.
