Creativity & Taonga

We have been such creative kids lately.....we are really enjoying learning about the treasures from the past and now. 

We created our own mini waka and even made our own poi!  We have an assembly next week to show off our poi skills.  

Making Poi with some very helpful big buddies. We needed lots of help to plait the wool.....

Problem Solving Double Trouble

We had a neat truck problem to solve!  We first had to work out that a truck has to have the same number of wheels on each side or it would tip over.  Then we wrote the important information down about there being 8 wheels on each truck and 2 trucks.  Mrs Ray sent us off with some trucks and wheels and we had a play.  We were able to count that 2 trucks would by 16 wheels (after lots of counting and adding)!  We love problem solving.

Constable Jacob Visits Us-Kia Kaha

On Monday Constable Jacob came to talk to us about Kia Kaha, how to ask for help.  We got to do a role play to show if someone was being mean to us.  We were able to show Constable Jacob that we would go and ask for help, or tell on the person.  We also learnt that the police are there to help us and not to be scared of.  We were awarded a special badge that we got to make and wear for the day.

We learnt that we are all special in different ways and have many things that make us special like.....

"I was born in South Africa" Tyler
"I am a twin"  Malia
I am really good at drawing and I love it" Abby
"I am great at soccer" Lucas

What Do We Treasure?

We had a lovely start to our new inquiry this term by asking and answering 'What is Treasure?' and then 'What do we Treasure?'.  We had such great answers and after awhile, started thinking that our family were treasures!  Mrs Ray has had an old treasure chest sitting in our class all week and she FINALLY opened it and shared one of her treasures....her family photo.  Everyone then, wanted to share their own family photos so we that's what we are doing!
