Writing Inquiry

It is that time where we give the students a writing experience to write a recount on for E-asTTle test. We came up with an idea that was so much fun. The students were excited, we gave no clues away until the very moment they were about to start. This experience tied in well with our whole school inquiry of Art Alive. We colour, skills, teamwork and patients. The outcome was a piece of art to display in the classroom and a cool experience to write a recount.

Whiria te Tangata

Today Room 23 were very pleased to be going to Room 5 and Whaea Kelly to build relationships with our year 8 students. The year 8 students helped us by sharing their knowledge of making virtual libraries. We were each given an older student to work with. They asked us lots of questions we were a bit shy.We thought this was really cool though. We thought it was awesome choosing our own images, scenes and backgrounds. Check out our individual blogs for our virtual libraries. Mauruuru ki te wa kua pau i te ako mai ia koe

Tongan Language Week 2020

This week in Room 23 we have totally embraced Tongan Language week. The beginning of the day starts with the Tongan National Anthem. We learned to read Tongan using text that is in both english and Tongan. We learned how to draw Tongan patterns and on the last day we tried some Tongan food. Thanks to Mrs TA and Miss Timmi for their contributions to the week.

Year 3 Boys Cross Country

 We had our school Cross Country today and it was a very nice day. The music was great and everyone made a great effort to dress in their house colours. Ms Tumahai, Ms Hill and Mrs Mackinlay had fun cheering us all on. Room 23 has been practising every day and our hard work has paid off. Out of the Year 3 boys, Jerymiah came 1st, Noa came 2nd, Elijah from Room 22 came 3rd, and Maung Maung came 4th.  Ponyamon came 5th. It was a great afternoon.

Henna with Mrs Carter

 As part of our Inquiry in A World of Difference, we invited Mrs Carter to our class to talk about her culture. Mrs Carter is from India and she knows a lot about India. Mrs Carter painted Henna on our hands. We felt very special.
