Tawa Class 2017
Well it is already week 8 and what a great 8 weeks it has been! We have been so busy in Tawa this term that we have forgotten to post any blogs! We have enjoyed lots of fun things so far such as writing recounts, narratives and a procedure, reading heaps of exciting books, working hard on our maths, completing fitness circuits, and learning about Christchurch and different cultures as part of our topic which is "Our Place in the World." Another cool thing that we have been working on is our mihis. These are pretty special to us and we are practising them lots as we want to have them memorised so that we can introduce ourselves to other people in Maori.
Last week on Friday we had a St Patricks mufti day. It was amazing seeing the school as a sea of green. Heaps of us came wearing green wigs, green clothes, and some people even dyed their hair green for a day! It was a heap of fun and a great way to celebrate St Patricks day and the Irish culture. Here are some photos, look at how awesome we all look.... :)
We are super lucky to be a part of Tawa Class this year. We are an extremely cool bunch of kids who are excited to learn new things. This terms value is respect and is something we will continue to focus on. So far we are doing a pretty good job, and our teachers think they are pretty lucky to have us!
We look forward to sharing our learning with you from now on. There are a lot of exciting things happening at Gilberthorpe this year so stay tuned!
