This week we have been learning about the ways we handle disagreement with our friends. Have a look at the power point below to see what we have been learning and decide which animal you are in a conflict situation. We are all trying very hard to be owls.
In handwriting we have been learning some tricks to help us remember which way round 'b' and 'd' goes. Here is a favourite trick.
Our big book this week was about a Huggles. Huggles love to hug and we had lots of fun making play dough 'hugs' and photographing them ourselves.
My taniwha is awesome. He said, “Hi,” once. He is big. He is really scary. He likes me.
Our poem was also about Taniwhas. You can listen to it here whilst looking at out Tuxpaint taniwha pictures.
On Thursday we had a great time learning about more Maori myths and legends at a special workshop run; we could not do these trips without you.
