This week we have been learning how to say the sound of K and how to write the letter K. Today Stephen's Mum gave use some kiwifruit to try. They were red inside and were delicious. Thank you Pauline!!
Today we were visited by author Jennifer Somervell. She read us two of her stories (The Day Dad Blew up the Cowshed and A Very Greedy Tale).
A Very Greedy Tale was about two pet pigs who escaped their pig pen to search for food. We acted the story out. George was the actor chosen from our class.
Te Awa students listened very well! George, Nikau, Stephen, Phoenix, Matiu, Will.
Ahurangi played the farmer.
Justin and George were in charge of the electric fence. Kyle was one of the pigs.
On Friday the 5th of April Te Awa and Te Moana classes went to Auckland Zoo. Here are our photos and writing.
I went to the zoo with my Mum and my class to look at the zebra and spider and crocodile. The crocodile looked like a rock. It had one eye open. By Cora-Rose
I liked the zebra because I have a zebra jumper and it is mine and it is cosy. We saw a baby zebra and it was cute. By Ilha I liked the zebra because it is really my favourite zoo animal. The baby zebra is cute. The Mummy zebra was tall and it eats hay. By Ohana
I went to the zoo and I saw a baby tortoise. He was pretty and he was tiny as and he was a boy. By Matiu
I like the flamingos and they were cute. There was a duck living with the flamingos. By Hunter
I liked the baby penguin because they were very cute. They were standing up and eating fish, special fish. By Nikau Me and Nikau went to the zoo because we wanted to see the rhinoceros. There were two. They were eating hay. The rhinoceros usually live in Africa. By George I saw the cheetah at the zoo. It was eating fast. I saw a lion and I saw a kiwi and I saw a penguin. The penguins were still. By Reign I like the cheetah. It was lying in the grass, it was lying down. I heard the baby penguins. It was fun seeing the baby penguins, they were cute. By Kenzie We watched the lions. They were sleeping. The tiger was also sleeping, then I was saying "wake up lion, wake up". But they were lazy. By Aayush
On Friday Te Awa hosted our School Assembly. I was VERY impressed with how brave our students were at speaking to such a big audience. We showed our Science work about the life cycle of a Monarch butterfly and the growth of the sunflowers we planted on the first day of school. We also showed our Maths work about repeating patterns (Algebra).
Ohana, Hunter, Kaura and Nikau read their writing about Monarch butterflies. Vanya form Te Ngahere helped.
We showed our butterfly art.
Phoenix said "Teachers, can we please have the junior certificates." Dalton from Te Ngahere helped him.
Kaura said "Teachers, can we please have the senior certificates."
