Our learning on the first day of school

Today Room 4 completed an activity called 'Find Someone Who...', which allowed the children to interact with each other and find out information about each other and what they did in the holidays, we also completed an activity based on theTreaty Of Waitangi. Jump jam was our daily exercise today and we played the game 'stuck in the mud' because of the team work involved. 
The first day back at school was a success for all of Room 4 ☺️
