Pīwakawaka Fantail

Pīwakawaka / Fantail 
Harper took some more photos of a pīwakawaka (fantail) that he spotted at the Zoo. We talked about all the colours of the pīwakawaka feathers. 

Cheeky Little Fantail song:

Cheeky little fantail,
Flying through the air,
Snapping at the sandflies,
Darting everywhere.
Cheeky little fantail,
Love to see you fly.

I could never catch you,
Wouldn't even try.

I love to watch you

Flippin, flappin, flippin, flappin, flippin, flappin everywhere.
I love to watch you
Snippin, snappin, snippin, snappin, snippin, snappin everywhere!

Piwakawaka 1 and 2 Aquagym fun.

We have had so much fun learning new things in Aquagym this week...  Look at us swimming. 


In Maths today the children played 'Racing to Twenty' with their buddies.
They had to roll the dice, count the number shown and then move their counter on the board.
It was fun to see who could get from Start to Finish first."Watch out I am catching up to you."

Whoa you got a six !!!
"And I am going to shake my dice over here."

"Let's get going with our game - you go first.."

"Move your counter 3 places."

"I am winning the game !!"

"Now how do I move six and jump over your counter ?"
