Term 4 update!

We have had heaps happening in Room 18 over the last couple of weeks! Here are a few photos to show you what has been happening!


We skyped a class from New Jersey in the USA last week. We are going answer some more questions soon and write to each other through Google Docs. They were affected by Hurricane Sandy.

On Wednesday we also were really intrigued by the solar eclipse! Miss Tempero brought some special eclipse glasses to swimming so afterwards when we were dressed and outside we got to see it!

 Today we have learnt about why the moon looks like it changes shapes. Can you remember the 8 phases of the moon in order?! We made the phases of the moon using Oreo biscuits!

Willowbank and Ko Tane!

Last Wednesday we had lots of fun at Willowbank Wildlife reserve. We spent the morning exploring the park and checking out the animals, we then stopped for lunch in the farmyard and after that we went to Ko Tane, a Maori village, where we watched an amazing performance before learning and performing ti rakau (stick games), the haka and a poi dance. Check out our performances below!
