This week we are celebrating Matariki. If you're unsure what Matariki is, be sure to ask your Kereru members at home. Here we are decorating something special to share with you all on Thursday evening. Be sure to come along so you can see our finished products. Can you guess what they might be?....
This term we have been lucky enough to do Jump Jam each day with the whole school. Last Thursday we had Preschool join us and the sun even made an appearance!!
We recently visited the Canterbury Museum where we got to learn about and explore many things around the museum.
As a part of our Space Inquiry Topic we have been learning about each planet. We have been creating our own Solar Systems. These photos are of us decorating our planets to add to our Solar System.
To celebrate our wonderful mum's for Mother's Day, we decided to make them some nice lavender soap. We chose to make them soap because mum's are very busy and it's a great idea for them to have some time to relax and use nice, relaxing soap. We learnt that lavender helps your body and mind to relax.
We had to melt our soap base. We took turns to stir the mixture. We had to be careful because it was hot! Once we melted the base, we poured our soap into the moulds. We took turns to decorate our own soaps with leaves and we made sure we did this with TLC. We had to work quickly before the soap set.
We enjoyed making this soap and showing our appreciation for our wonderful mum's!
We thoroughly enjoyed Book Week. We were fortunate enough to meet and read with some great authors! These included Amanda van Vliet, Gavin Bishop and Anne Kayes. To celebrate our Book Week we had a character dress up day on Friday. These were our very cool and creative costumes! Can you guess who we are?
