Mehki's Befunky

First we had to go on Befunky and made funny pictures of us and the first one I made was the orange one. I liked making all of the pictures different.

Logan's Befunky.

First I had to go on BeFunky. I got my photo taken by Mrs Larsen. then we chose different kinds of themes. I had to do 4
pictures then saved it and printed it. This is mine. I felt excited when I made my BeFunky.

What is coming up!

This has been a busy term and there are still lots of things happening at school. On Friday this week it is Wheel's Day, so don't forget to bring your skates, skateboard or scooter to school. We are also learning two dances that we are going to perform at our Dance Showcase which will be held at the end of this term. It is quite tricky learning to dance, especially keeping in time with the music. We chose dances that we could do without a partner. There is going to be lots of practicing happening in our class for the next couple of weeks. Watch our Blog because we might even add some photos.

Be Funky

In our buddy class we made a Befunky. First we needed to get a picture with Mrs Larsen. When we finished taking our photos we went in and went to our buddy and started to make our be funky on the computer. This is mine and I think it looks great.

Our Matariki Celebrations

We visited the Cosmodome at the Museum and we got to see Matariki, Puanga and Tautoro in the night sky. We learnt about why Matariki is important and that it signals the Maori New Year. We used really old tools from the museum to prepare the ground for planting which was really neat. When we got back to school we created pictures of our family using a koru design, carved pumice, made poi and got to try to use rakau. We did this with our buddy class, Room 15. We really enjoyed it and hope we do it again.
