Sun and Shadows

In Akeake we have been learning about space this term. We have been reading about different planets, writing about Uranus and even designing our own planets! In KĊpapa we learnt a bit about the sun. We know that the sun is a burning ball of gas, it is a star, it gives us light and heat, and it creates shadows on the ground. We did an experiment on the court to investigate our shadows. We discovered that our shadows change size depending on where the sun is in the sky.

Swimming Lessons at Kaiapoi Pool

Over the last two weeks Akeake children have been having swimming lessons at the Kaiapoi Pool.  Our last day was all about water safety and we had a great time learning about what to do if we fall into the water in our clothes. An amazing opportunity for all of us.

Whole School Assembly

A great job was done by children from Akeake who ran the whole school assembly on Friday!
Some of these children were a bit nervous - but they showed our school value of Being Brave and they did a great job.  Well done team!
Our awesome M.C's

The Technical Team

Lighting Crew

During assembly we shared some of our learning from over the holidays.  We took a 
Reading Bingo sheet home with us and we did our best to fill this in.  One of the things on our Bingo 
sheet was to Reading in a Strange place.

Here is our slideshow of some of the places we found to read.

Please note the change of times below.

Akeake are going swimming every afternoon in weeks 3 and 4 this term down at the Kaiapoi Aquatic Centre. We start on Monday 6 August and finish on Friday 17 August. 

The exact times are as follows:
Room 11  - 12pm
Room 12  - 12.30pm
Room 9  - 1pm
Room 8  - 1.30pm
Room 10 - 2pm

If you are able to provide transport on wet days, please let your child's teacher know. We would love to attend swimming even if it is raining outside! 

Please also ensure that your child's togs, towel and school uniform are clearly labelled with their name. This will save us any hassle when we are getting changed.
