Class Reporters

Todays class reporters Sophia, Maskil and Deziree shared some items and information with us this afternoon.  We were amazed by Sophia as she shared her player of the day trophy.  Maskil told us about his adventurous trip to Mt Ruapehu.  Deziree brought in her tweeting, repeating and singing pet bird.
I wonder what we will see next time?

Mandarin: Day 2

In our second Mandarin lesson we were able to have a conversation.  

Greeting each other, 'Ni hao'
Asking, How are you? 'Ni hao ma'
Replying, I am fine. 'Wo hen hao'

Master Chef Muesli Bars

Athletes need to feed their bodies with the right kinds of foods so that they can perform at their best.  We learnt more about this today as we were lucky to have Sylvia come up from her restaurant in Port Waikato to talk to us about what different foods provide us with.  We learnt about protein, fat and carbohydrates and which foods contain these, then we completed a taste test before creating our recipe for our very own muesli bar.

Ningbo Vistiors

On the 5th of July 2016 Ningbo students visited Cornwall Park School.  For half an hour the Ningbo students looked around our classroom and asked questions about the differences of New Zealand and China.  We also showed the students from Ningbo our class site and blog.

By Maskil, Oscar and Max

With the help of our amazing translators - Max, Maskil, Oscar and Li - we were able to welcome, share our learning and experiences, ask and answer questions with the students who are visiting from Ningbo China.
