Our Special Visitor at Swimming Time

We had lots of fun in the pool today with our swimming expert.
Today was a goggle-free swim day. We learned heaps about flotation and buoyancy to build our self-confidence. 

Te Puāwai have decided to have a goggle-free day every Monday and Wednesday. This helps to make children comfortable in the water without the aid of goggles. It is important for water safety as in the event of an unexpected fall into the water they might not have goggles on. 

We will continue focusing on floatation and buoyancy activities in our lessons along with having fun.

Chinese New Year

Today we had a lot of fun in Te Puāwai celebrating the Chinese New Year. We discovered that Red and Gold are lucky colours and made laterns, patterned cut outs and had a go at writing Chinese calligraphy using bamboo and ink.
