Term 1 so far...

Caterpillar Art

In Maths and Art, we created a caterpillar and numbered each of its segments. We had fun using balloons to print the round shapes.

The boys wondered how long our classroom is... So together we made a line of cubes from one side to the other. We then measured it with metre rulers. We found out that out classroom is nearly 7 meters long.

At T.T.A.A.

We had a powhiri; our host school welcomed us, prayed for us and
we sang some songs.
We all enjoyed some delicious kai (food).
Antonio played the Maori drum.
It was his very first day at 
Horizon School.
We learnt to play and sing a Maori stick song.

Back in the classroom... Noah wrote his sentence on our reading table.

Cameron and Maya counted a set of 33 objects!
Noah has four dinosaurs.

Solomon's Temple

Can you see the altar with cows and sheep on? The golden ark of the covenant is the yellow Lego behind.
The film canister lid at the beginning to wash hands and somewhere there is the Holy of Holies room for praying in. 

This week the Mahurangi Juniors were learning about what Solomon's Temple looked like and what it meant for the people in those days. Room 1 learners created these 'temple' models with Mrs Pearson. Wonderful creative work:)

Autumn Happenings

We had such fun creating Autumn pictures with Mrs Gerrand, our wonderful parent helper.

Cat in the Hat Assembly

We made cat-in-the-hat rhyming word hats and shared them at assembly.

Room 1 shared their Cat-in-the-hat poem.
