Welcome to another week, another weekly blog with me! First week back at school and what a week it was. We got to get straight into another exciting language week not one but two which was exciting to celebrate and learn about. On Tuesday we got to open up with a celebration assembly which was held in the hall where we officially declared it open. We also had some great activities done inside the classroom. Our favourite art piece was our rangoli patterns that we painted and coloured in. We even added some glitter for that extra touch. Here's a snippet of what we made. Jalan created a beautiful rangoli pattern We used corks for painting girls creating some great masterpieces Some students creating their own rangoli patterns Lovely painting coming along To end of our language weeks we ended it of with our usual shared lunch where we got to try a lot of food from India and Niue. We even got to combine with Aroha 1 and we had so much fun together.
Welcome to another weekly blog another weekly blog with me Hey fam we had another fun filled week that just passed and we celebrated Maori Language Week. It was a great opportunity to learn about our native culture and try some traditional food. As a class we created some Taniwhas and Matariki stars where we added some glitter to make them look shiny. Here are a few snippets of us making our designs: Arthur adding some glitter to his taniwha Kahlani adding in some purple glitter Carlos with his amazing taniwha Everyone had so much fun creating these and once we finished we stuck them on our wall. We had our big celebration assembly on Friday and as a class we got to enjoy some performances from our Kapa haka group and we were even lucky enough to watch Clendon Park perform. They were outstanding!!! Overall Aroha 2 had the best time ever when they got to help out by making our very own hangi. Each student got a turn to make our own ROWANDALE stuffing
