Olympics medals in te reo - by Leah

 On Tuesday, our class had Whaea Kaiya after morning tea.

When she came in she started talking about the Olympics. When she finished she pulled out some home made medals. 

Gold in maori is tohutoa koura, silver is tohutoa hiriwa and bronzes is tohutoa parahi. 

The kids that won!!!

How we won these is we had play a game. The game that we play is we had to shoot a ball into the netball net and try to get as many goals as we could.

Papatuanuku reading group

 Today our reading group read a story called "Das Piano" by Bernard Beckett.  

We had to read carefully stopping at the full stops and pausing at the commas.  

"we did this so that we slow down when we read" Cooper Nichols

"We need to make sure the story makes sense by using the punctuation"  Connor

After we read the story we had to create a padlet about it.  Here is Leah's padlet.
