On your marks, set...


The Plant Fair 1st of November

WDS  children showing off the vegetable seedlings that are ready to sell at the plant Fair on the 1st of November. Thanks to Jean Timms for helping the children sow the seeds at the end of last term.

Athletics Practise

On the 4th of November we are going to Memorial Park in Mosgiel  for Athletics Day. We think we are going to be really strong and competitive against the children from the other schools.We have been practicing our events every afternoon this week.
Charlie and Michael are sprinting as fast as they can by weaving around the cones, ready for the agility poles activity at the sports.

The School Van

In the school holidays Charlie's Mum organised a signwriter to put pictures on the school van. Now the van represents our school by letting everyone know there is a school in Waihola. The design on the van has the new WDS logo on it, with some children playing, yachts on the lake, and the Waihola Hill.

We think the van is awesome and we feel proud to ride in it.
Proud children pose for a photo. L to R - Beatrice,Tylah, Dorothy, Madeleine, Brooke, Evie, Charlie & Michael.

 Term 3 was a busy time with plenty of interesting and fun learning experiences. These are only some of them.
We are having drama with Evelyn. We worked from the story of Peter and the Wolf.
We are making mountains,hills, and rivers in the sandpit as part of our learning about the "changing land"

Ms Voice took us for music and we played and created music   

Out and about with Room 1! We are learning about how the waves change our seashore at St Clair beach.

We made parachutes out of plastic and string with a plastic block for a weight and dropped them from the adventure playground.

WDS Cross Country

We have been practicing for weeks for our own WDS Cross Country, and the Taieri Schools Cross Country being held next week. 
This week we had a lovely winter's day for our race. The sun was shining and we had many parents along to support & cheer for the children. One of our parents was brave and fit enough to run with the children! We all noticed the commitment, effort, and encouragement for others shown by the children.
