Cultural Performance

Today, after weeks and weeks of practice and learning we performed our songs and dances. 

Here is some pictures of the Tongan, Samoan and Maori groups. 

We hoped you enjoyed watching us today. It was a real pleasure representing the different cultures. We had so much fun. 

Thank you to all the parents, family, teachers and LSA’s for all your help and support throughout our learning journey.

A fun packed week...

This week we have had so much on!  

We have begun learning about measurement, and what people used before they had rulers or if they don’t have one. We measured a few things using our hands and feet. 

We had our first two swimming lessons for the term. The water was as cold as ice but we still had fun.  We focused on gliding and freestyle. 

Our buddy class have also been doing some amazing things. We loved stopping by to see some of their art. 

And we had a great time watching reading group four perform a play. 

Here is some photos from the week.

This week is all about presenting our speeches. Today was the semi finials where Tamika and Kendryek got to share their speeches to Team Whakapono. 

Kendryeks speech on how you can become a champion was very inspirational. 

Tamika’s speech on becoming a champion through joining the fight to prevent pollution was very factual and interesting. 

Today was also our Team Whakapono’s assembly where Tamika, Kendryek and Archita were rewarded for their hard work and the time they put into writing their speeches 

We are very proud of our class. 

During our assembly we also thanked Graham for coming into run EOTC activities for our Year 5 students. They had so much fun.
