Nau mai, haere mai, welcome to our blog. We are a small reo rua (bilingual) class of year 4-6 tamariki in Ōtautahi. Our blog is a way that we can share our learning with the world and it gives our tamariki an authentic audience. It is also a place for us to trial new and exciting technology. Please leave us a comment and follow us if you want to see more of what we are doing.
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.
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.
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.
