This has been a busy term and there are still lots of things happening at school. On Friday this week it is Wheel's Day, so don't forget to bring your skates, skateboard or scooter to school. We are also learning two dances that we are going to perform at our Dance Showcase which will be held at the end of this term. It is quite tricky learning to dance, especially keeping in time with the music. We chose dances that we could do without a partner. There is going to be lots of practicing happening in our class for the next couple of weeks. Watch our Blog because we might even add some photos.

We visited the Cosmodome at the Museum and we got to see Matariki, Puanga and Tautoro in the night sky. We learnt about why Matariki is important and that it signals the Maori New Year. We used really old tools from the museum to prepare the ground for planting which was really neat. When we got back to school we created pictures of our family using a koru design, carved pumice, made poi and got to try to use rakau. We did this with our buddy class, Room 15. We really enjoyed it and hope we do it again.
