|A portrait of Whaea Emma by|
We had a visitor all the way from America called Caleb. Caleb is an art teacher a bit like Whaea Dagmar and he is also her friend. Caleb asked us to draw two pieces of art for him. One was of what we would love to eat at our dream birthday party and the other was of what we thought an African Jungle looked like. He brought with him some amazing felts and colouring pencils which we get to keep in our classroom.
The really exciting part of this project is that our
After the exhibition Caleb is going to send us back our art and we hope we will get to see how ours was different or the same as the students in America.
This week we were also given the opportunity to visit the classes of Te Roopuu o Nga Manukura (Rooms 14, 19, 20 and 21). They
shared their learning with us. We learned about how to create a strong password, what to do if we feel if we are being cyber-bullied and which sites are for our learning and which sites are for personal and social use at home.
On Thursday afternoon Te Manawa had it's end of term celebration.
Room 18 presented their play, Room 15 did their digital citizenship rap and car wash dance and Room 17 made popcorn for the 132 students and staff of Te Manawa. Then we had the premiere of Te Manawa's movie THE SECRET SEVEN from our day of seven actions of good citizenship.
As if this term wasn't amazing enough Room 17 won LEVI the assembly bear at the last assembly of the term for their fantastic behaviour. Some witnesses might say I did an embarrassing victory dance, I can't remember - I was too happy!
It means that LEVI will live in Room 17 for the holidays and we will get to sit on the seats on the stage during the next assembly.
