Reach for the Stars - Matariki Art and Writing

Last term we looked at stories based on Matariki. Here is our new wall display with our hands and our writing. The class had to work with a partner to write a sentence using a language feature we have learnt throughout the year. Some students wrote a sentence using alliteration, personification or a simile.

Term 3

We have started Term Three off with a hiss and a roar. Room Totara has jumped right back into lots of work.
Today we saw the launch of Mana the Lion and all of our PRIDE rewards. Each class received a box of goodies with PRIDE Certificates, Mana Moments, Mana Tick-its, Principals/Deputy Principal's Certificates and our very own Mana.
We have a very large Mana the Lion (80cm tall) which Room 12 were proud to be presented with for the week. They were the best class during Assembly this week. Room 15 hope to receive Mana proudly in the next few weeks by demonstrating PRIDE in Assembly.

These students were just some of the students who received Mana Moments in class today:
