Letters From Australia

Today we were so excited! Letters from our penpals in Australia arrived in the post. We really enjoyed receiving our first letters and learning all about our penpals. Can you believe it, one of them has a pet snake!
They asked us lots of good questions. They also told us a little about how Kingi is going and drew pictures of him. We are pleased he is with such a nice class.We will be writing back to them next week.

Weaving Stars

Today we were really lucky. Tyson's mum Laura, came in with Aunty Kath to show us how to weave stars. They heard we had been celebrating Puanga so though it would be a fun thing for us to learn. We needed to listen carefully and follow the instructions accurately. We had lots of fun. I think our stars look great!

Dance Poems

For our habit of mind, gathering data through all senses, we have written senses poems about dance. Here are a few of them.

Dance tastes like popping candy tingling in your mouth.
Dance feels feels like the air swooshing through my hair.
Dance looks like a little butterfly flying through the air.
Dance smells like freshly mowed grass.
Dance sounds like the beat of a drum.
That’s Dance!

By Joshua H

Dance tastes like sweet green apples.
Dance looks like wavy and flowy movements
Dance smells like lovely roses.
Dance sounds like the beat of music.
Dance feels like romance.
That’s Dance!

By TePaerangi

Watch this space to see how we present our poems!
