Fairy Bread

As part of our learning about procedure writing and te reo colours , we made fabulous fairy bread. We read a recipe before making it and followed the steps. We got challenged ourselves by trying to name as many colours as we could in Maori.

Book Week 2022

What an amazing way to end Book Week 2022. The children all looked amazing and were super excited to tell their friends about their character. So many smiles and joy was around the school today.  As you can see from the photos a great day was had by all. All week the children have been involved in a variety  of different book activities.


Kia ora koutou,

Today Rooms 7 and 26 were practising their Google Drawing skills. To create these fish we had to use the shape tool, the fill bucket, group our shapes, resize and rotate them, change the background colour and then duplicate the fish (ctrl-d) to make a whole school of fish!

What do you think of Louie and Emilie’s fish? Maybe you could have a go too…


The Importance of Korowai

This term 3 we are integrating many subjects whilst inquiring about resilience across all Year 3 and 4 classes.  Last week, we have completed Room 18 korowai/kakahu. This week we’re going to write an explanation text about the importance of korowai, Maori cloak.  Today, we have explored the many occasions this national taonga, unique to New Zealand, is worn. The students volunteered to turn into a person that would wear korowai. We’ve had a queen, NZ prime minister, USA president, a graduation, a wedding, a funeral and a birthday gifting.  Let your child tell you who was playing what part in Room 18.
