For two weeks we are having swimming lessons at the ASB Aquatic Centre in Richmond. We travel by bus everyday for out lessons. All the middle and senior syndicate classes are taking part. Each class has a 30minute lesson and 30 minute swim in the wave pool.

Welcome to 2012

Welcome to 2012.
There are 28 students in our class this year - 16 boys and 12 girls.
We have had such a busy start to the year.
In Week 2 we presented an assembly item with Room 9 about respect and what it means at Brightwater School.
This week we visited the museum to find our about the Crawthorn Institute in Nelson - we had no idea how important they are to our safety and everyday lives.
Next week we begin 2 weeks of daily swimming lessons at the ASB Aquatic Centre.
In between we are getting on with our reading writing and maths and this term our topic is Earths Natural Resources.

Waimea College orchestra

Waimea Collage Orchestra on PhotoPeach

Waimea College orchestra

The whole school went to the hall to watch the Waimea College play all sorts of instruments.They were playing incredible songs like the Pink Panther,Simpsons , Lord of the rings, and Music of the Night. They showed us all of the amazing instruments there was a Flute, clarinet, rhythm guitar, bass guitar, oboe, trombone, trumpet, french horn, piano, and violin. All of the songs were soft and had a little bit of rhythm in them as well.

The most amazing and exciting bit for me was getting to go up the front and be the conductor for the very last song.It was a bit embarrassing but it was so much fun, I was waving the stick up and down looking up at the instrument's but also looking at the peace of paper( music). I had a great time and i think you will enjoy it as well.

You've got the power

Yesterday we went to a a wicked show called You've got the power! It was all about anti-bulling there was an amazing illusionist whose name is "Algregoe" he told us that bullying is the most worst thing you can ever do at school and he showed us some of his wicked tricks ! Some people like me went up to volunteered to help him with his tricks. After you would get a prize!

We learnt that you need to keep your "wits" about you.
W - walk away
I - ignore them
T - talk to someone
S - Say Stop

It is easier to do the right thing than have to make up for it. We need to be good role models especially as year 5 and 6 students.
