Life Education Trust

We met Harold the Giraffe in the Life Education truck. We learned about feelings, and how to turn negative feelings into happy feelings.

Our waka

He waka eke noa!

 ..and here is Katrina. It is Wheels Day!

Soft pencil and charcoal art. We learned to sketch, shade with charcoal and rub with our fingers to make the charcoal blend in. Tumeke!
(P.S. You could hear a pin drop!)

Our art...

We have been learning about Aotearoa, our stories and our people. We have been putting together a waka with all of our art works. Our work is nearly finished...!

Billie Bear, meanwhile, has been visiting quite a few children. Here he is, showing off their work!

Bye Billie, see you tomorrow!

This week...

Today Mr Hunt came to school with Pepetuna, the Puriri moth. We shared a book, we decorated a poem, and...we made our own Pepetuna. It takes 5 years for one to hatch and then they live for only a day or two. They are very beautiful!

On Fridays we also share something we bring from home. Can you see our question keys in the middle of our circle?  We ask questions that start with one of these words.

Here is also our schedule for the interviews next week. Please phone our school office if you would still like to see me for an interview and you're not on the list!
