Harakeke Flowers

This week Room 1 is celebrating Maori Language week. 
Today we made Harakeke (flax) Flowers. We learned about some of the tikanga around harvesting harakeke and cut two pieces each to weave from our Sunnyhills School's supply. 
While we were cutting Mrs Daniels was with her Enviro group and found a weta which we all were very interested in. 
Room 1's first woven piece is to be given away to someone special in their lives.

Learning is Fun!

Today Leo and Declan C presented their Culture presentations.
Leo made everyone Afghan biscuits, a New Zealand sweet treat. Some people had never tried them before and all agreed they were delicious. Thanks again Leo.
After their presentations we participated in a Kahoot the boys had made, to see what the class had learned from their presentations.
Well done boys, awesome presentations, you rock!

Maths Week is here ...

Today Room 1 worked hard to solve problems together in the Survivor Series task to crack codes and in the Daily Dollar task where questions answered correctly earned dollars. 
Every day this week there is a new code to crack and dollars to earn! 
At the end of the week a correct code will lead to some treasure and a winner with the most dollars.
Go Room 1!

Dance Festival

So proud of Leo, Kate, Abby and Emily who participated in the Dance Festival on Wednesday and Thursday nights. They were amazing, although looking a bit old.
