We have an exciting new topic this term. Our new topic is called "Dino-Might!" and it's all about dinosaurs. These amazing creatures roamed the earth for over 140 million years. What did they eat? How did they live? How did they move? What colour were they? Why did they become extinct? These are some of the questions that we will be investigating this term. Maybe you can leave us a comment if you know some of the answers to any of these questions.

At the start of each new term, we have an immersion assembly where all the teachers dress up according to the theme or topic for the term. Team 4 decided to put together a movie to share for immersion. Well done to Mrs Nua, Ms Squires, Miss King and Mr Palmer for starring in it. Mrs Lagitupu was the director. We hope you like it.


  1. Wow Team 4 teachers. Scary movie! I really, really wish I had seen you dressed up at the first assembly of the term! I'm looking forward to seeing the results of your students' inquiry learning. My class, Room 7 at Glenbrae School, will be following with great interest.
    My question is " How does the NZ tuatara fit into the dinosaur puzzle?"
    Have fun.
