Over the next few weeks, we are focussing on Matariki. We have been learning about at the whetū Waitā which represents freshwater and the food and resources we gather from the lakes, rivers, streams and swamps.

WE have focussed on making pōha, kanakana and mōkih.

We have been using Thinglink or Google Slides  to share our information gathering. Here are some of our creations.

Welcome 2017

We are back for another year of amazing learning. Our classroom size has increased and we have lots of new children. These children will feature on our classroom blog in a few days.

At Hornby Primary School we have a swimming pool which we LOVE! With the weather lately, it has been incredibly hot and we have been able to cool off at lunchtimes and also have our own classroom lessons.

Today we were focussing on powerful kicking and breathing correctly.
Take a look at our photo.

Kia ora Joe's Garage Wigram

A huge thanks to Anton and the the crew at Joe's Garage Wigram for the lovely breakfast this morning. The Trusted Trekkers were lucky enough to go out as a group and enjoy pikelets with  jam and cream or maple syrup or scrambled eggs on toast and a huge glass of juice. Mr Roberts and I had a delicious muesli and coffee. What an awesome start to the day.

Geometry Construction

WALT construct 3D shapes using marshmallows and spaghetti.

We had lots of fun working in a group to construct the shapes. We did struggle when we had to stand up the shapes though. Look at what we have created.
