Conservationist DLO Movie

Through Extension me and the year 5 & 6 Extension group every term have been practicing and taking part in the Paideia Seminar which is a place where we gather in groups and share what we've learnt. This term we were looking at instruments well not all of them were instruments, the first instrument was the Violin, second this is my group the Trumpets, third Piano, and last but not least the Drums group. the exciting part is the lollies on the table which everyone loves, we have a limited amount of lollies so that its three lollies each for each person.

It takes a lot of confidence to master the
Paideia Seminar and luckily I have that confidence. I have participated in every single Paideia Seminar in this entire year. I still remember when Mrs Burt came to our first Paideia Seminar in Term 1!

Dear Mr Burt,

Room 10 would love to plant all sorts of helpful, medicinal and native plants all around the school to help our creek and even the environment!

I would like to plant a plant where the back gate is on that little grass area I would like to get a plant and put it in the soil and also I would like it if I planted a native plant.

What I have been reading for our writing activity is harakeke which is another word for flax.Why I chose this reading is because when I read it I found it very interesting because it said that harakeke can be made into wine and it’s got medicational things inside it and because it provides shelter for other animals.

But we can’t do it without your permission, we only want to help the things around this school and inside, so please.


Kind regards,

Return of the Moa

This Week me and my reading group studied the Moa at our class! We've had loads of fun thinking of questions for our buddy to answer and to of course make the quiz.

Maui and the giant fish voiceover

Kia ora my name is Toby and this is my Maui and the giant fish animation. Maui walked to the beach, reaching for the kayak boat to ride out into the waves of the ocean to fish. When he pushed it out, he was drifted by the waves and came very far out. His fish hook dropped down into the water and he waited. Finally there was a tug on his fish hook and he struggled to lift the fish to the surface. He had finally done it. He named it the North Island of Aotearoa!
