Tawhiao's Pepeha

Tawhiao brought in his Pepeha to show the class. He was very proud of his whanau and it created great discussion about where we are from. What an awesome way to present it too.


Here we are practicing some of our new sentences about our whanau.
We stand in two lines - introduce ourselves to our opposite partner and when the time is up one line moves a step down the line to a new partner. I explained it is like speed dating where we get to know a little bit about each other (not that I have done it!!!)
Our sentences

Ko wai koe?    Ko (name) ahau
No hea koe?  No (place) ahau
Ko (name) toku mama
Ko (name) toku papa
Ko (name) toku kuia
Ko (name) toku koro.


Here we are on the glockenspiels and ukelele playing music from The Wizard of Oz.
I am impressed with our ability to keep time.


We have discovered a great quiz game to play to review our learning.
You could probably hear our screams of excitement from your house.
The children had to answer questions on their own devices and they were timed and the top scores were displayed on screen. Such competition.

Kensuke's Kingdom

Jacob has created a google drawing of some of the significant places and items involved in the Kensuke's Kingdom - the story I am reading daily to the class. He has worked so steadily on this in class and also at home.

Te Moana Disco

Wow what a happy looking bunch who came out to support the school last Friday.

Cross Country Training

We have started our cross country training and are well on the way to building our fitness. It's great to see the kids challenging themselves to run further each day.
