Kite Making

To celebrate Matariki Room 15 is designing our own kites. The students teamed up to work in pairs and they had lots of fun. Unfortunately there was no wind once we had finished so stay tuned and hopefully we will have a windy day where we can see if the kites fly. Getting started. First the students had to make the frame by joining straws together.
I was really proud of how they worked together to get their frames built.
The frame is finished
Now to attach the paper
Finally attaching the string without getting it tangled

Good Bye Ms Myers

Room 15 were so lucky to have Ms Myers in our classroom for 2 weeks. She was visiting from Portland, Oregon to see how our school system works. We are all going to miss her and the wonderful help she was in room 15. Take care Ms Myers and hopefully we will see you again one day.

Murder On The Dance Floor

At the end of every year the students make a fun movie. This year we decided to have a dance off to the beautiful Sophie Ellis-Bxter's song, Murder On The Dance Floor. Hope you enjoy it.

KINDNESS: Manaiakalani Film Festival

This year the students from Room 25 wanted to make a movie about 'kindness'. As we filmed this movie and talked about different ways of being kind, it became clear that when you are kind to others they will be kind back. We hope you enjoy our movie because we had so much fun making it.

Fun Friday

On Friday our Olympics Day was cancelled as it was too cold for the kids to be out on the field all day. They were so disappointed, I made the call to have a fun art day.
