Creating Treasure Chests

Yesterday we all had such a great time creating a box to put things in we treasure. Look how creative we were! We learned that some treasures you cannot even see like love and health. We decided that our families were our most important treasure.

Beaka The Parrot Stays The Week

Last week Mrs. Ray brought her 18-year-old Rainbow Lorikeet Beaka to school for the week. We loved having her at school! 

How Much Do We Know About Number 11?

For maths we had to write down and show how much we knew about the number 11!  It turns out we know a lot!

Matariki Weaving and Assembly Sharing

Room 21 are using creativity to answer our inquiry question ‘what do we treasure?’,

We have learned that in June, Maori treasure their new year celebration called Matariki. Families get together and look at the stars and tell stories.  

One story we read was called The Seven Kites of Matariki. Just like the story we have made our own special kites for the new year.

We learned how to weave and make a creative star and feather kite to celebrate Matariki. This took us many hours and lots of patience!
