Trash to Treasure !

The beginning of our 'Trash to Treasure' unit for Term 4

We have started off our learning with a BIG BANG! 
Today Miss Adams set up a Hook In for our Trash to Treasure unit - We had to use an old t-shirt to create a bag out of.
We all watched a Youtube clip and had to remember the instructions off by heart. 

It was super fun making the bags.
We have all decided to use these T-shirt bags to hold our swimming gear in.

! ! ! LOOK AT OUR PHOTOS ! ! ! 

Halloween Writing !


For Writing we are writing Information reports. We are informing our audiences all about Halloween! We all thought it would be a good idea to research about this topic because we know Halloween is not really celebrated in New Zealand. We thought it would be good to find out who created Halloween, where they celebrate it and how they turned it into a holiday in other countries. 

For our Hook-in we got to decorate our classroom. 
It is super spooky and everybody says they love it!

Come in and see for yourself!

Term 4 Begins!

The first day back -

Today while you were in class I went to Mangere Bridge School to Ms. Eniata and Ismays Powhiri.
It was choice to see Ismay so happy with her new school mates and her new teacher.
I got to meet some of Ms. Eniatas new students. They looked happy to have her as their new kaiako.

We wish Ms. Eniata and Ismay well on their new journey!
Good luck and enjoy the last term!

We already miss you both sooooo much!

(Can you spot Ms. Eniata in the crowd?)

Holiday fun !

The holidays have been great for me and my whanau. I have been doing some really fun things as well as relaxing! Its been super good having some quality time with DJ too.
We went up north to my parents place for several days before coming back down to Auckland!

                                 I even went paint balling with my sister and cousins!

I hope you all had an enjoyable, relaxing holiday and are ready to start this term with a BANG!

Here are some photos of my holiday!

Special vistors

Today we were very lucky to have real life Fire Fighters from the Manurewa Fire Station come in and talk to us about their job and what they do to help protect us!
This was a follow up from our last Fire wise session last week. 

We saw a real life Fire truck and Miss Adams got to hold onto the fire hose and axe. She said the axe was "heavy as"!

Thank you Fire fighters for helping to keep us safe!

TONGAN language week has been so exciting! We have learn some new Tongan words such as 'Ofa' which means love. 

Kiara-Lee and Summer taught us a very snazzy Tongan dance. 

There was a pig roasting on spit all day at the back of the hall. The smoke from the fire made all of our clothes smelly but we didn't care...
Some kids from Room 2 were super upset when they saw the pig being cooked but then they understood that this is a way of survival. 




Thank you to Fire fighter Matt and Fire Fighter Villy for coming in and teaching us more about being 'FIREWISE'. 

We learnt some interesting facts like when there is a fire the smoke is actually apart of the 'fire' and that you cant smell anything when you are sleeping and when you do wake up it takes about 1 minute for your sense of smell to come. 

These are life long skills that we have learnt.

Our special neighbours

Our special neighbours 

Today we went for a short walk across our fields to the back fence. There we saw our special neighbours - COWS.
Miss Adams told us some facts about cows. She knows heaps about farm animals because her family lives on a farm and she spent many of her holidays on the farm. Miss Adams even worked on a farm when she was younger. 

Some kids in our class have never seen a cow before so Miss Adams said yes we can go and see them. 
The kids who haven't seen the cows before were all excited and 1 child was really loud from being too excited. Another child said to Miss Adams look theres something moving and it has a tail and its hairy. Miss Adams laughed and explained to the child that it was a cow. 

We are lucky to have these special neighbours.
