Team Awa's last assembly

Today was our last assembly for the year. We had lots of parents come and celebrate with us. THANKS Parents!
Here are just a couple of things we presented at our assembly.

This is a slideshow of our Hundertwasser mountain to the sea artwork. We used pastel for the background and collage, with different materials, for the fish.

This is a video of the Mannequin challenge that we did in class. We had lots of fun creating this.

Team Awa's Movie

Here is the movie Team Awa made for the Ohaeawai School movie competition. We chose to show how the use of mountains, rivers and seas have changed over time. We also showed the impact people have had on the different environments. We were chosen as one of three movies to be shown at the Kaikohekohe Trust film festival in Kawakawa. Sam and Charlie-Gurl introduced our movie at the film festival.

On Friday we had our annual Greats and Grands Day at School. There was an awesome turnout of Grandparents. This was a very special day. The school performed for the grandparents then had a shared morning tea with them.

After morning tea the children showed their grandparents their chrome books. They showed them how to access and comment on their blog.

Here are a couple of photos of Room 1 children showing their grandparents their blogs and learning.

Life Education and Duffy Theatre

A very busy day today. We had a visit from the Duffy Theatre for a fun show about travel in a time machine and the importance of reading.

We also had our second visit to Harold in the Life Education classroom. We learnt about having empathy for others and being resilient. We also learnt about mind master and head hassler. This is about making red light / green light choices.

Crazy about Bees

We have been 'busy as bees' in Room 1 and 2 learning about Bees and creating DLO's. We have created videos about how bees make honey using either WeVideo or Google Slides along with Screencastify. We have also made QR codes of our videos and put them onto our wall to share with others.

Our display of QR codes for the videos.
An example of the poster with the QR code.

On Tuesday we all had a great morning for Hero Day. The ambulance, police and fire service came along to share their role in the community with us and talk to us why they are heroes. There were lots of fun activities. We got to crawl through a tunnel to practise get down, get low, get out if our house is on fire. The police recorded how fast we could run using their speed camera. Mosese was the fastest! We also got to have turns on the different stretches in an ambulance.
Here are some photos of our day.
