During Arts Afternoon this term, we have been developing our dance skills. Inspired by the performance in Term 1, we decided to create our own Bollywood style dance. As in the performance, we took a traditional story and created dance moves to retell it. Can you guess which story we are retelling?
We've studied space and the timeline to the Moon Landings. We've studied rockets and space stations. We've imagined our own and create a design. Finally we get to bring our creations to life!!
It was fantastic to see everyone on Friday afternoon. The children showed really pride and excitement as they showed their guests around. Thank you all for making this such a success. Here are a few shots to remind you of the fun we all had.
Just a reminder that we will be singing in assembly this Friday followed by a shared lunch.
After that, the children would like to invite you to visit our classroom and share in their work and let you in to the world that they inhabit for 6 hours a day, 5 days a week!
Look forward to seeing you at all or any part of our special afternoon!
Room 17 are off to the Stadium next week for their fundamental skills week.
Please ensure that your child’s clothing is clearly labelled.
We've reached the halfway mark and the sun has come out again to brighten our day!
Our galaxies are completed and will be on display in the Hall for our Matariki Celebrations on Friday of Week 7. There will be a walk to the Teahouse in Harling Park and our traditional milo and marshmallows too. Come along and join us!
Continuing our Space topic, we learnt all about the Moon and when it appears to change shape over the course of a month. See us in action reading together to learn all about the different phases below.
We've completed our report about the planets and have shifted focus to the visual arts we have been exploring in Arts Afternoon. We're collecting and organising information on our plan ready to craft our first draft next week.
In reading, we've explored what information goes into a pepeha and you may well have been asked about your family and whanau's waka, maunga and awa. We'll be putting these together next week.
Have a lovely, relaxing long weekend!
