Matariki Celebrations

Last Friday our whole school had Matariki celebrations. We started bright and early with a dawn ceremony and breakfast, and then spent the rest of the day joining in on fun activities. 

Our class buddied up with Room 21 and we were able to make poi, learn some new waiata, and make some printed artworks. After lunch we had a school wide sharing assembly and lucky for us we were able to perform on stage THREE times! We sang E rere taku poiTutira mai and Nga iwi e to the whole school!

Some of us were excited, some of us were nervous, but we did an amazing job. 

Ambury Farm Trip

Last Tuesday we visited Ambury Farm with Room 2. We were able to see Fly the cow getting milked, feed some goats, chickens, and sheep, and we felt the hard bristles on Sesame the kunikuni pig. We were very lucky we went on such a beautiful day and we learnt many new things! 

Check out some of our photos below. 

We would also like to say a big thank you to the parents who came and helped look after us. Thank you mums and dad!!
