In He Punga Kawenga we have been learning about emotions as part of our inquiry. When Mrs Bennett was teaching us she got us to pick an emotion and describe it in a poem. Here are some of our poems.

In He Puna Kawenga we have been learning to write descriptions. To write descriptions you have to be good at noticing ,observing and wondering. We went around the school doing this then wrote poems inspired by Frank Kendon's the Looker-on. Here are some of our poems.

In week 6 we started our active learning sessions. There are four activities and we will do a different one each week. This week there was baking with Mrs Pedley, creating an igloo for our guard penguins in class, creating a sled for our little penguins and snowflake symmetry. We had lots of fun and were very creative, imaginative and innovative.

He Puna Tārei Art Gallery Trip - Beyond the Frame
He Puna Tārei enjoyed a visit to the art gallery where we
explored the idea of thinking ‘outside of the square. We had
to create our own painting inspired by the artworks in the exhibition
Out of the Frame. Our artwork had to have: a primary colour, a colour
we made ourselves, texture (smooth and bumpy) and one colour blending
into another colour. We had lots of fun and used the Habit of Mind -
imaging, creating and innovating when making our piece of art. Next we
have to figure out how to display them in the class!

He Puna Tārei imagined, created and innovated self portraits based on the artworks of Romero Britto. We followed the tutorial video step by step to draw our portrait. For our backgrounds we created patterns using things we like.

We have been learning to write descriptions. We listened to the sound of wolves howling and looked at images. Then we had to describe what the wolf looked like and how it might act. We published our descriptions on Book Creator - click on the link below to go to book creator to read it.
