Zero Waste

This week we have Shirley from Zero Waste to work with us on thinking about our waste mangement systems and attitudes at home and at school. Today we worked in groups to discuss various items of what would usually be waste to figure out what we could reuse them for.

Dance Practise

14.9.15

Here is our dance so you can have a go at practising at home. Remember to start with the right foot or hand or shoulder first each time.

carving and kapahaka

Each monday some of the class goes to kapahaka and some of Nic's class comes to us while he is taking kapahaka so we are learning about different aspects of maori culture too. For the last few weeks we have been making carvings in pumice of different maori symbols.
We chose one that had meaning to us and then carved it from pumice. Some of the pumice was very soft and some was almost like stones. We used ice block sticks, spoons and sandpaper to make the shapes. Then we mounted them on painted wooden bases like real carvings.

A drone came to school

Today, Rob brought his drone to school to give us  a bird's eye view of the school. It was amazing to see the roof of the main block, how the slide and the fort look from above and how a tree looks like lightning strikes from above.  Watch and see what we saw.
