Pyjama Day

On Friday the 27th of June 2014 the School Council at Auroa Primary School held a Pyjama Day to raise funds for Student Council Projects. Nearly the entire school took part in the fundraiser wearing their best Pyjamas. These photographs to document the event were taken by the students from Room One. The students paraded around the school first thing on Friday morning for all the school to see - it was cold and wet but that didn't let our students stop celebrating.

Pyjama Day


I was very sad to be missing out on Pyjama Day today. Here is a picture of Miss Davidson in her P.J's. I hope you all have a great day. I look forward to seeing your country western outfits at the disco tonight!

Repurposing - Monster Plan


We have been repurposing rubbish to make monsters. We used an application 'Explain everything' to plan our monsters. We had to think about what materials we would need, how we would use them, and what we wanted our final product to look like. We used an audio recording to remind us what materials we were using for each part of the monster. As they were just a plan this is raw material. Here is Aariya and Sophie's plan for their monster. Check back in a few days to see how our monsters turned out. We think they look super cool!

Basic Facts Ladder

In the back of the basic facts notebook is the step your child is currently working on for our basic facts ladder. The children are all very excited to see themselves move up this ladder. They have even been practicing during breaks! Here is a song you can sing with your children if they are learning their doubles.
