Living Native Taonga

Room 4 has been researching Living Native Taonga. 
We have learnt a lot of new and interesting fun facts about kiwi, kereru, tui, tuatara, morepork, pukeko, and mokomoko, 
AND
we have learnt some great new researching skills.


Mika's research.



Last week Kauri whanau  visited Kiwi North and saw a lotos Living Taonga in, and near, the kiwi house.
Ayden had visited the Bird Recovery centre prior to our visit and sent us photos of birds that were being cared for when he visited.




The Bird Recovery centre is a good place to contact if you find injured birds who need specialist care.

A busy week in Room 4.


Gosh, Week 2 has been a busy week!

On Monday 2 students in the class received a big surprise when they found out that they had both won a colouring competition we entered last term.
The Hot Rod Club and the Rescue Helicopter people arrived to present Mika and Vansh with their prize, a family experience in the flight simulator that the helicopter pilots train in.
Our class photo will also be published in an up coming edition of the Hot Rod magazine.



Well done Mika and Vansh.

Students in Room 4 also spent the week painting a 'Rugby Fan' which will be displayed around the city during the upcoming Lions Rugby Tour. We chose to paint a "Crusader' fan.



Our week finished with a lovely Mother's Day liturgy in the church and Kauri whanau sang for our mums. 

You might like to learn the song we sang at home.

We also wrote a special poem for our mums but we can't show you that yet in case our mums see it before Sunday!
