Kingi's Back

Yay! We were so excited today when Kingi turned up. He spent last term with Mr Burgess in Scotland. He had lots of photos to share. David must of known Kingi was going to be back soon because he made him a bed. Kingi loves it and has been sleeping in it a lot.

Holiday Art

Today we have been working on creating Holiday Art. We based it on the Google Logos. We had a look at some logos to inspire us then we got started. Instead of using the word google we used my holiday. We needed to have a theme. You should be able to work out what we did or where we went by looking at our holiday art. Here are a few finished ones. What do you think they did on their holidays?





Rearranging the Class!

Today after a suggestion made from David we rearranged the class. After shifting the mat to where we wanted it to be, it was all up to the boys. They decided where the desks, shelving and computers will now be. I think they did a great job working as a team and setting up our new class. It looks so much bigger now.

Picture Captions

Exciting Holidays!

Well our class along with Room 12 and a few other people from the school took part in something very exciting in the holidays. We were involved in a photo shoot. An advertising agency in Auckland saw the photo on our blog with us in front of the house with the flags and wanted to recreate it. The photos are going to be seen all over New Zealand. They will be on billboards at airports and on posters in the banks. Check out how it went.

Finals, here we come!

As you can imagine New Zealand is just buzzing after the All Blacks win last night against Australia. Just in case you missed it or just want to watch the great moments again I have found a clip showing the highlights. After that great performance what do you think? Are we going to win the RWC?

Clay Faces

At the end of the term Mrs Larsen taught us how to join clay together correctly. We then used these skills to create clay faces. Here is how they turned out.

Dance Showcase!

After a lot of practice with Mark we pulled off our dance at the dance showcase. The clothes and makeup were amazing and all the boys got right into it. I am so proud of you. Thanks Mark for all of your help. Have a look at the video to how they did.

Clay Pinch Pots

On Friday the boys learnt how to make clay pinch pots. Some of them found the technique hard to do. After a lot of hard work they etched designs in their pots. We will now leave them for a few weeks to dry out.
