Kia ora from the Kōwhai Teachers

Hello from all the Kōwhai teachers.
We hope you are all keeping safe and warm in your houses during this lockdown period.

We thought it would be nice to share what we have been doing over the past few days.

Laura has been playing lots of board games with her flatmates. Here I am playing Scattergories, which is one of my favourite games. I was also pretty proud to win Monopoly, with a final bank balance of 22 million dollars!

I have also been doing lots of baking - Chelsea Winter has a great recipe for Lockdown Bread - you could try to make it! Stay safe and take care x

 Pip has kept very busy! Here is a photo of all the things she has done this week.

Paulette has been keeping busy with Ben and Millie her cat. Millie has been spending most of her time sleeping or asking for snuggles! She's pretty persistent!

Ben has been sorting ALL his Lego into sets which is taking quite some time. We have needed 'hawk' eyes to find some of the pieces! It's like finding treasure when we come across a piece that we have been hunting for. 

Experimenting in the kitchen has resulted in us making bread, brownies, muffins and other delicious treats. My favourite has been the chocolate brownie. It was so delicious even though it had black beans in it!


I've been reading, doing puzzles and playing games with Ben. He so far is the master champion of all the games we have played. If you haven't checked out Epic yet, make sure you do as there are HEAPS of really cool books to read or have read to you. Stay safe and warm. I'm missing seeing all your lovely smiles and hugs! xx

Rowe has been pretending she's taking nice bike rides on the beach, but the exercycle and lounge views will have to do for now. 

She has also been partaking in scrabble championship matches with her husband and daughter. Her pantry has never looked so clean.

Nick has been making some online maths games, playing computer games, watching movies and reading.

Welcome to Tracey to the Kowhai team!
Tracey has been keeping busy. Thank goodness for our coffee machine, feeding the alpacas our veggie scraps and enjoying the recent sunshine during the lockdown. These things, along with reading a good book, are helping to keep things normal for me and my husband, Kevin during this time.  I hope you are all safe and staying well during the holidays.  I'm so looking forward to starting the new term with the Kōwhai team and whānau.  🌸😄

If you have a photo of what you have been doing throughout this time, email it into your teachers and we will create a slideshow of the pictures to put on our blog for next week! 

Take care and stay safe.
