What a great cat!
Today our buddy class Room 14 visited to teach us how to weave with harakeke (flax). They also brought along Smokey the rapiti (bunny rabbit). We love it when Room 14 helps us learn new things and also when they bring along their pets to share!
Today in Room 9 we learnt about pikopiko. Pikopiko are the baby shoots of ferns. In Maori "piko" means to bend or curl. To make our pikopiko paintings we had to learn how draw a spiral. This wasn't easy, but we all tried our best and look at how well we did!
This movie shows the three Maori Waiata performed at assembly on Friday the 30th of July. The first is Tekoteko, performed by the children from Botany Downs Kindergarten. The second and third are Taniwha and AEIOU, performed by the kindergarten, Room 9 and 14 together. We rehearsed for our performance using the 'voice over the internet' program Skype. We really enjoyed working with our buddy class Room 14 and Botany Downs Kindergarten!
