Maui and the Sun art

Mrs H taugh a series of art lessons around the book Maui and the Sun with the children.  The children viewed the book on you tube in Maori and talked about koru designs.  They experimented with drawing kori designs and then drew and coloured the sun.  Mrs H did a fantastic job presenting the children's work and displaying in our classroom.  Tino pai Mrs H and Room 17.

The children have enjoyed basketball, learning different skills.  Coach Theo and Clifton have taught the children dribbling, controlling the ball, shooting and balancing  their bodies to help with defence.  It was lots of fun!

Maths in Action - Capacity

The children used different containers to measure water in the trough.  They counted and compared the volumes in each container.


Mrs Strand has been into our classroom to take music.  The children have been learning to use the instruments to keep to the beat.
