Pasifika Week

Week 1, Term 2

What a busy week we have had!

We have had cross country practice everyday in our lead up to Cross country on Wednesday of Week 4.

In Room 5, we have had a look at some Pacific Island nations and culture through YouTube learning videos, stories and making Tapa cloths.

We looked at common designs to get ideas then we did a practice piece on scrap paper.  When we were ready we did our designs with brown and black pastels on brown paper.  Once completed, we scrunched them up to give them the impression of being made from material.

Room 7 also did Tapa cloths and we will connect everyones designs together to make one massive wall design.

City Gallery Trip

Tuesday 27 March

We took our first field trip!  We went to the City Art Gallery in Wellington to look at New Zealand Identity through artwork.

We saw a video showing different sports and events that New Zealanders do, an abstract landscape painting, photos of "Home" from around New Zealand and the world, a jeep, a Ferrari Red carved piano and floral explosions.  What a big day! 

We also had the chance to create our own art in groups.  We each drew a flower or leaf of Native and introduced plant species in New Zealand.  We then stuck these in an arrangement and you can find these on the wall outside of Room 5.

We had great parent help and look forward to other trips and events this year.

Science Writing, Week 6

We have had a fantastic start to our year, especially with the large amounts of sunshine we have been having.  We have enjoyed being able to go outside for a run around and playing sports - hopefully we can keep doing this for a little while longer!

We are now underway with our maths programme and it is encouraging to see so many students from Room 5 enjoying and looking forward to maths.

Looking at adding to our writing experience, and help us make predictions, we have started some experiments in class.  We really enjoyed the "Blobs in a Bottle".  We had to predict what would happen when oil was added to water; what would happen when food colouring was added; what would happen when a soluble panadol was added.
We loved the reaction so much that THREE whole panadol tablets went in the bottle over the course of our experiment!
