This week we have continued to think about narrative writing and we used the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff to help us think about describing a character. Here we are painting our own trolls.
This is what Will wrote about his troll picture.
My troll is green. My troll has long legs and big green feet. He has a small body and a green head with whiskers.
In our popcorn inquiry we moved onto the "acquire" stage of our learning by looking at different products made from corn and discussed how they looked, smelt and tasted. Here are the results for the products we have tried so far.
Our poem was also about popcorn. We published it this week but want to add some percussion to it before we make a sound recording to share with our families and friends. Have a listen to what we are aiming to achieve.
On Friday we had our Kowhai good work assembly. Can you spot some of our Room 11 friends getting certificates?
Finally we have been practising a new waiata for a special powhiri we are having on Monday. The children asked me to put the video up on the blog so they can practice at home, so here it is
