Room 7 heart maps

Each student in room 7 has created their very own heart map. Our heart maps are full of the things that are special to us. We can use our heart maps during writing time to help give us ideas and special topics to write about. 

Tongan Language Week Assembly

A huge thank you to Miss Tuli for organising such a AWESOME assembly for Tongan language week! We not only got to perform the Tongan song we have been practising as a junior school, but we also got to watch the seniors perform their item. 

We were then lucky enough to watch a fashion show showcasing all of the different outfits the people of Tonga wear. Gorgeous!!! 

Room 7 students are seated at the front waving the Tongan flags they made :)

Hiwi the Kiwi

Here is a short clip showing our visit from the Minstrel. We learnt lots about marine life and sustainability. 

Concept Art

We have been learning all about sustainability this term! As part of this, we have been exploring all of Aotearoa's different taonga. 

With Room 8 (our buddy class) we collected some natural taonga and created art from it. 

When collecting taonga for our art work,
we made sure to pick things that had already fallen to the ground so that we wouldn't be harming our environment. 

We hope you enjoy our pictures. Please feel free to comment. We love your input!

Tino Pai tamariki! You have been done some amazing mahi. So much so it's being shared on our class blog! 

The first of these two photos features our octopus art. We read a story about an octopus called Eight. After this we got to create our own octopus and write a story about it. 

The second of these photos is our "Bl" display! To help remember the "bl" blend we created our very owns blocks! The best part about these blocks is that each face has a picture of something else that starts with "bl"! This then helped us think up some MORE "bl" words. 

We also know that our blocks are 3D shapes and have edges, faces and sides. 

A BIG thank you to Mrs Delich for helping with this :)
