Hope everyone is keeping warm and safe. Unfortunately we are on Lockdown again, but we shall carry on nicely and calmly like before.

Parents, if you could please support your child with their Distance Learning Activities (shown on the FBS main page), that will be great! You can join in with their learning as well because some of the activities need a family member, this way you can all be involved with your child's learning and have fun. 

Reach out if you need any support with anything via email or text.

Faafetai lava! :)


CRT - Kia Ora Rm 10.      Let the games begin      19/8/20

I hope you are all doing well during this lock down. Unfortunately we will not get the chance to catch up today for CRT so instead Mr Moiho and myself have decided to put forward a challenge for your class. Your class will be challenging Rm 19 in a handstand challenge. When we are back at school we will get together and see who can do the longest handstand. If you think you can master this, then you may just win the challenge for your class. If you can make a video and send it to your teacher even better: Check the video below for details.

Week 10

Talofa Lava!

This week Room 10 were inquiring on their question regarding their Student Inquiry. The topic is Kaitiakitanga (Tausi le si'osi'omaga). A lot of discussions were had, but we eventually ended the discussion around the students and their environment at home. So Room 10 students came up with their inquiry question... 

'If we were to go on Lockdown again, what can we do at home to make life easier for us and our families?'

From this question, Room 10 arrived at looking at making a vegetable garden at home. The following pictures are of two students designs of their home vegetable garden in which they are thinking of doing with their family. The vegetables they chose are what their family usually cooks with. Have a look, they're amazing!!!













Hope you enjoyed following Room 10's week of learning.

It's been amazing seeing the students work through the last few weeks after lockdown and they have been settling into school life really well. Malo lava Room 10!

The following pictures are of cards that the students wrote for our dear friend, Dayton, who is in hospital at the moment. The students miss him very much and wish him well on healing up quickly and then come back to school so that we can catch up with him. 

Also, the students are still working to complete their lalau 'ai (placemats) from Samoa Language week, and some of them are finished. They look absolutely beautiful with the students being creative using Samoa patterns, flowers and designs they chose for their placemats.

Lastly, the students wrote an Acrostic Poem about Coronavirus. Have fun reading a few of them.

We hope you have enjoyed looking through our page so far. Keep looking out for more of Room 10 students fantastic work!

Here is Sam's lovely Mother's Day letter to his beautiful Mum.

Mothers Day    

Dear Mom,

You are the most beautiful mother we have ever had. Thank you for everything you have done for me and my brother and most especially our one and only sister. Thank you for waking up every morning to make our breakfast and preparing our lunches for school. Thank you for always being with us everyday, for taking us to school and picking us up. Thank you for being a kind and loving mother to us all. Thank you for never giving up on us when we don't listen to you sometimes. You always teach us the ways we should have to be, especially respecting and listening, thank you for that mom. 

We pray that our heavenly Father will continue to bless you in everything you do and give you more years to be with us and our dad. We love you so much mom!

Love from,

Samuel Lam Sam 

Here is Sa's beautiful Mother's Day card to his mum.


My Mother is the best
Offering love that never waxes old
Teaching her children wholesome 

Happiness to her, she brings
Extraordinary remarks, she says 
Rich in her natural goodness always
So beautiful like a rose

Dizzy like a busy Mum 
Amazing day like an Amazing Mum
You are the most incredible mother 


Love from your son,


Here is Mishana sharing her learning with Reading and Spelling.

How are you all? 

Here is an interesting story written by Fetaua'i, and also some very funny jokes he came up with. Enjoy reading!


 A hamster in a can 

Once upon a time there was a hamster, and his name was August.  He loved to play with his friends Sammy the squirrel and William the hedgehog and they all lived in New Zealand. Then one day August wanted to go to Australia. 

But just before August was going to get on the airplane he thought maybe I should go to Australia, so August went to get Sammy and William.  He took them to Rainbows End. Once they got there William wanted to go on a ride called the Stratosphere. Sammy wanted to go on the Fear Fall, but they were not tall enough to go on the ride. The only rides they could go on was the Log Flume and the Gold Rush, so they went on those rides then they went and got some food. 

After they ate they went into the Kids Kingdom because they were little. First, they went on the Roller Coaster ride then went on the Surf N Swing. After that they went on the Merry Go Round then they went home.

Once they got home it was night time but August wanted to sneak off so he could go to Australia. But that night New Zealand went on Lockdown Alert Level 4 because of the Coronavirus cases in New Zealand. He was sad because it was his dream to go to Australia. 

August was determined to still go to Australia so he jumped onto a boat that had all these people that came from China. They were actually being sent back to China because Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern thought that some or one of those people had Coronavirus. Suddenly August had a feeling that the boat was not going to the right place so he felt like he had to jump out of the boat. He saw a steel can in the sea and decided to make an immediate jump into it along with his umbrella and his suitcase. He felt sad but he still wanted to go Australia.

While he was stuck in the steel can in the sea he actually felt relaxed and peaceful, but he started missing his friends Sammy and William. August got lonely and bored but then he remembered he had his suitcase with him. So he checked in his suitcase and inside he  had old photos of Sammy and William. He felt so much better when he saw Sammy and William coming on a boat and August shouted out, "Williammmmmmmm!!!!, Sammyyyyyyyyyyy!!!! Over here!!!!"😩😩 But they didn't hear him. After a while of nothing, he had a bit of a rest 😰😰 and then screamed out louder but they still did not here him so he prayed a prayer and said, πŸ™"Lord, please let them hear me." 😁 Then he screamed one more time, "Wiliammmmmmm, Sammyyyyyyyyy, over here!" Then suddenly William and Sammy heard him and smiled and said, "What happened to you, you're filthy"😳😳. So he was saved by William and Sammy and he said thank you to them.

When they finally returned home, August was just happy to be home, and the three friends played at the beach and lived happily ever after. 

The End
