We LOVE the Library!

This week we visited Mr McCallum in our library.  We love to go to the library.  Mr McCallum always shares a couple of his stories and they usually make us laugh.  We have been learning about how to use the library, how to issue and return a book the next week.  We can keep the book for seven days and share it with our families at home.

There are lots of great places to read books in the library, there are bean bags and comfy seats.  We will visit the library every Wednesday but we can also go at second lunch time on our own!

We feel so lucky to have these wonderful children as new learners in Halswell School.  Parents, you can be extremely proud of how your child settled into the Ahuriri studio for their very first week.  All the children listened, shared, followed instructions, created, played and absolutely shone all week.  

It has been great to chat with each child as we moved through a range of activities.  We are really looking forward to getting to know more about our new super studio learners as the year passes.
