Week 5 in Review

On Tuesday a lovely lady called Tuhu from the ecosanctuary came in to talk to the class about legends/stories. Tuhu told us a story about Ranginui (the sky father) and Papatuanuku ( the earth mother) and all of their sons who were gods. After she told us the story ,which involved lots of movement and pretending to be creatures, we chose a part of the story and we had to act it out. Tuhu had brought along lots of costumes and face paints so we could look like the characters and one by one we acted out our parts of the story. Thanks Tahu!
Mr Herden also introduced us to ‘WRITE to the SCORE’. We planned out stories while different types of music were playing. The class chose what feelings they felt when the music played or what type of music they thought it was.

On Wednesday morning the class got out their writing books and wrote to the score. Some great stories were produced and we all recommend it for other classes to try!

On Thursday after we played a bit of stopity stop ball with Room 6 Mr Herden had a bit of a briefing for our Rock Climbing Trip that was going to be held at long beach on Friday.

Friday everyone arrived at school in mufti and jumped in their cars ready for an exciting day ahead. Everyone had fun at each activity that included Sand trails where you had to make a trail for either a golf ball or a tennis ball to go all around the beach and the longest time wins. A treasure hunt down in the caves where we had to find all 20 or so five dollar notes and get all of the mixed up letters find the code then run back down the beach in a bungy rope to an area of sand where Mr Herden hid ice block sticks. We had to dig until we found all 10 sticks.  Oh yeah, we also did Rock Climbing which everyone in the class thoroughly enjoyed. There were 5 ropes to choose from some for beginners and some who have a bit more confidence. Overall it was very fun day everyone enjoyed it.

It was a very fun action packed week can’t wait to see what's in store for next week! Lily and Brynn (Little Britain)
