This week Talia has led a series of Te Reo Maori lessons to teach us how to say our mihi. Next week we will be recording them to go on our blogs along with our self portraits.
In our Zero Waste inquiry we have been using our knowledge to think of enterprising ways to reduced our classroom waste. Here we are shredding our used paper. We found out from our home surveys that some of our families reuse their shredded paper for pet bedding.
We filled a carrier bag with shredded paper and decided to sell it for 50c so that we were no more expensive than the paper sold at the pet shop.
In art most of us have finished colouring in our leaves with warm colours. There is a lot of detail to add and our hands keep getting tired so some leaves are still taking shape. Come and look at the finished ones on our classroom wall along with our Autumn descriptions.
On Tuesday it was International Families Day, check out our paintings of our families on the kidzstuff blog
Our poem this week was all about the kiwi bird and next week we will be writing a description to go with this.
