We included lots of beautiful pictures and kind words in our cards. What an awesome way to show manaakitanga towards others!


Firefighters came to our school to talk aboht fire safety! We learned about what they do and what kind of equipments they use.
We got to see the firetruck from up close which was exciting!

'Bumble Bee'

This is Pili's learning for the week. 

He read a book 'Bumble Bee' and he wrote a story about him becoming a bumble bee.
Making lots of honey for your family and homeless people is such a good idea Pili! Awesome way to show Manaakitanga for other people!

               This is Pili's imaginary insect. I love how this insect has black clothes on!

This is his recipe writing.
It was challenging because he had to write a lot of things. So it took few days to write, but he finished it! I can see a lot of hard work put in here, Ka pai! 


                        This is Pili's inquiry. He learned about insects and animals.

Uasi's home learning

Uasi has been reading a book called Fantail. 

His favourite insect is a spider. He drew a fly next to it to show that spiders eat flies.

He also did writing numbers. 

We are glad that Uasi has started some home learning, and can't wait to see more!

Anthony's online learning

Anthony has done some reading activities.

He has done a lot of writing about his imaginary animal. Miss Shin could see lots of different punctuation which is really cool! Using punctuation gives our writing our own voice. Next step for Anthony is to use paragraphs. It will make the writing much easier to read!
He has also done a writing about his favourite insect. Remember to put comma between words when you are listing things!

Anthony learned about halves and quarters.

                                       You've been doing lots of learning! Keep working hard!

Pili's online learning during the lockdown

Pili has been doing lots of learning during lockdown. He has been doing some reading, writing and maths. In his reading, he read 'A T-shirt for Nana' and he designed his own T shirt, as well as learning some high frequency words. The high frequency words worksheet was super fun!

He worked hard for writing and maths too. He labelled his alien and explained how he looked like. He looked really cool! His next step will be to remember to write capital letters only when it is a start of a sentence or it is a name of something. He will also focus on having full stop at the end of each sentence. 

In maths, he learned about quarters. He designed his own pizza. He had to cut it in quarters.

We can't wait to see more of your learning during lockdown! Keep working hard!!

Going to the library

Every Thursday, we go to library as a whole class. We bring back some of the books back so that we can read the books in class during reading. We enjoyed reading quietly by ourselves as well as reading them with our friends.
