Teingoa's Tamarereti Story

This term we have been learning a lot about the story of Tamarereti. Teingoa retold the story in his own words. Well done Teingoa. 

A long  time ago there was a village next to a lake. When it was very dark people didn't go outside because they could not see. But there was a boy called  Tamarereti who was a brave warrior. One morning he was so hungry. He went fishing and got lots of fish. Then the wind went away so he just went to sleep and waited for the wind to come back. Later the wind came back and took Tamarereti to a different island. It was getting dark so he ate the fish and after he was finished he did not know where he was and he knew
the taniwha would come and eat him.

He took some shiny pebbles and threw them in the sky so he could see. When he was back at home he went to sleep. Then he woke up when it was morning because someone was at the door. It was Ranginui. He came and said to Tamarereti “thank you for lighting up the sky.” The end.

A fun last day of term!

Today Room 14 had the movie and popcorn they had earned with all their hard work this term. We started off the day by icing biscuits and decorating them with some lollies. We also decorated cups for our popcorn. After morning tea we watched the movie Meet the Robinsons. This movie linked to our term theme of Now That Is Thinking! We enjoyed thinking about what is possible when we think, create and keep moving forward. We also learnt that we often learn more for failure than success. If something doesn't work the first time as creative inventors we must keep trying and designing to achieve success.

Hula Dancing

 Today we had a wonderful group of dancers come from a school in Hawaii. It was great have a group so passionate about sharing their culture with us. We hope you enjoy the movie as much as I enjoyed the show.

Flying our Kites

Room 14 have been waiting and waiting for a windy day to fly our kites. But we never got one. So sadly we had to made our own wind by running. Today we took our kites outside and ran around the court to see if we could make them fly.

We really enjoyed testing our kites and now we have taken them home to wait for a windy day to see if they will fly without running.

A Special Visitor

This morning Gabby brought a special visitor to Room 14. It was a seven week out bunny called Tiger. Tiger happily hopped around the classroom and Room 14 really enjoyed petting Tiger.

Thank you so much to Gabby and her Family for bringing Tiger in to visit us.
