Grandparents and Special People Day

Today we had some very special visitors in Room 2.  First we showed them our cute dancing.

 Next, we took them to our classroom to share some writing, stories and then lunch.  We LOVED having our special people in our school today.  Thank you so much for coming.

Packaging Party

Mrs Ray brought some new stools for our jelly bean table and they came in some neat packaging.  When we got to school there were boxes and bubble wrap everywhere, and we had a party with it!

Pukete in The Past

As part of our inquiry into what we treasure we looked at some pictures of what old classrooms used to look like.  

We also saw a few old pictures of Pukete. 

 We created a venn diagram to compare the past to now:

It was all very interesting and we decided it would have been boring back on the olden days ;)

Creating Patterns

This week we learnt about patterns.  We looked at patterns around us and then we had a go with maths materials making some of our own:

We then created some ice creams in a pattern following a plan we drew:

 On Friday we learnt how to weave in a pattern.  We made Matariki shooting stars......

Matariki Celebrations

Last weekend we all created some feathers and brought them back to school to make them into a Matariki Cloak or Kakahu.  We LOVE how our Kakahu turned out and LOVE even more how we all made it together.

Then we made some kites from plates and ribbons.  We has the BEST time playing with them when the rain stopped.

And Mrs Ray taught us how to play string games.....

What did you do to celebrate the Maori New Year?
