Writing Goals

Last week was the first week of the term 3 and we had to set some writing goals. We were learning to identify our next learning goals in writing. We have to achieved 3  learning goals by the end of the term. Once we had finished putting our writing goals on a slide we got to put them on a google drawing and make it look cool .
I hope I achieve my writing goals by the end of the term and this helps me learn better.

kowhaiwhai and koru

Last term Te Ngahere and Te Maunga drew kowhaiwhai and  koru. That was so cool! I drew a koru. We had to draw them about our family.

( Kowhaiwhai Art )

Last term for Matariki Te Ngahere and Te Maunga created some kowhaiwhai art that represented our family. Firstly we used scrap paper and used crayons to practice drawing, When we were finished we were finally on our new piece of paper, Next we copied it onto our last copy of paper and used metallic paint to paint it, Last when it dried out I outlined my drawing with vivid.

Matariki celebration

Last week it was Matariki. If you wanted to be  there to  see the Matariki stars you needed to wake up at six o’clock in the morning.
I woke up at six and went to Matariki. I saw Mr Halliday, Tarquin, Thomas and other friends. Then it was time to go to the beach. We went to Paihia beach where Alfresco is. Firstly we didn't see the stars so easy. They were covered with clouds so you could not see the Matariki stars. Then Whaea Becks had this app that could see through the clouds. after a while the Matariki stars appeared but you could only see six, because the 7th one was blurry.  Then after awhile we went back to school and there was breakfast. if you wanted breakfast you needed give a gold coin, I gave 2$.

But I just had a toast and some oat biscuit from my bag.


Last week on Tuesday the whole Paihia School went to the Treaty Grounds.The little  kids went before the older kids so when the little kids go before us that’s good because the little kids get more time to play than the bigger kids.

Waitangi Treaty

On Tuesday all the Paihia School kids went to the Waitangi Treaty grounds the juniors went in the morning  and the seniors went in the afternoon.When we arrived at the treaty grounds we had to split into three big groups, some group’s had their class and some had split up into different classes the first one we done was the one when we had to go into the bush and plant some plants. We had to plant kawakawa we tried  find a place to plant our kawakawa.The next activity was manu aute as in kit I went with Reitu we both were done at the same time.When everyone was done we had to fly the kites the only kite that went the furthest was Kingi’s and his partner. The next activity was playing matou and maui plus ki waenganui those were the one’s that I liked. I think that that day was the best.

Lily's Tree Research

On Wednesday we did some research about the plants we planted on Thursday so we would know where the plants grow best. I did my research on a plant called Reinga Lily. But we did have quite a few options like Te Kouka, Carex Secta Grass, Manuka, Koromiko, Harakeke and Puriri. Before I had started the research I didn’t even know what Reinga Lily was or the other names so I am glad I chose Reinga Lily because now I now nearly all about it and what a cool plant it is. Our WALT was to find information.

Frey'a Tree Research

On Wednesday we started to learn about a selection of plants. There was Ti Kouka, Carex Secta Grass, Reinga Lily, Manuka, Koromiko, Harakeke, Puriri. I chose Manuka. We have a Manuka forest at my house and I did not know much about them apart from that they can be made into honey. So I wanted to learn more about them. First we had to find a picture, find out the best growing conditions and find any interesting facts about our chosen plant.
