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 :)

Taonga Aotearoa


This term's concept is Taonga Aotearoa. We have been learning about New Zealand's treasures, and ways that we can help protect them. On the wall you can see our beautiful artwork representing our role as environmentally conscious citizens. You can also see our writing, which is all about how we might help the Lorax save the earth.
