Welcome To Week 5

Kia Ora Koutou Katoa,

This week looks like it's going to be a big one.
  • On Tuesday the Y4's head to Nelson for hockey and on Thursday the Y5's head over. If you're able to come along and provide transport, please let Mark or myself know. 
  • Picasso art is in full swing. Most students have finished one portrait using pastels and are moving into using the same compositional technique again, but on a larger scale using paint. I'll get some pics up soon.
  • Friday is the Daffodil Day Gala. The students in Room 5 have been working on their stalls. They've had to fill out an application form designed to help them think about what they need to do to run their stall. I'm looking forward to seeing it all come to fruition. Hopefully momentum continues and they don't stall. Here are some images of the students beavering away in preparation. 

  • In science, we're designing and building our own bottle rockets this week. This involves measuring our bottles and drawing a plan of our rockets, then constructing our amazing designs using state of the art materials such as ice cream containers and cutting edge tools such as scissors. It should be a blast (off). Here are some photos of the design process thus far. 

Rock On,

Mr M
