Term 2 Week 9

This week involved much learning connected to the Maori New Year celebration of Matariki. Our whakatauki for the month also reflected this theme.

Take a look at the Hangi and the Kowhai performance of the Matariki Macaerena in this movie.

Our big book this week, Haere Atu, also taught us some new words in te reo.
In maths we had great fun comparing how much water different sizes and shapes of containers could hold. There were some big surprises, we learnt that the tallest container does not always hold the most water!

=We have been practicing writing our sounds of the week on whiteboards and on paper, and continue to work on using the correct pencil grip.
