And we are DONE for the term!

Wow! That term went by so fast. We've had some great fun. Some of the highlights were definitely the Culture Festival and the Art Exhibition (including the lead up to the big events). Goal Setting Night was a great chance to meet with whanau and Swimming Fun Day was epic and we're all looking forward to what craziness we get up to in Term 2.

Art Exhibition

Bitmoji ImageWe had so much fun looking at everyone's art this week, so much so, we had to go back again for another visit! Have a look to see which pieces were our favourite.

Make sure you check out our individual blogs to see our reviews on our favourite pieces.

Art Exhibition

We had our very own Art Exhibition. Today we got to go back in through the exhibition with Room 10 and choose our favourite piece. 

One of our favourite art piece is the diorama, especially the elephant one.  It's one of our favourite because it was very creative. I liked that the diorama used lots of colours and it's made by Wint.

Here is some writing by Josephine titled, I hope kindness can come around more.

GTS Powhiri

Today, we had our first powhiri for the year. We have a powhiri every term to welcome new whanau to our school community.

This powhiri was extremely special because we had our very own Savanah and Josephine step up and be leaders. They were 2 of the 3 kaikaranga for our special day.

They both did amazing jobs at their karanga. So confident. So proud.

Imagine you are an astronaut

Today for writing, we read a fictional diary entry of an astronaut and his daughter. While reading, we thought that they were both enjoying themselves in outer space.

For our writing task, we had to imagine that we were in outerspace with our dad and write a diary entry for the following day.

Have a read of Catherine's diary entry and let us know what you think.

Take a look at the photos and let us know what you think

Myat shared some photos with us of her family and of Kindy
Carlosi shared with us a special pounamu shaped as a dolphin because his Nan loves dolphins 

On a visit to Fiji, Ben returned with this awesome souvenir! So coo1! 
Catherine, sharing a picture of her grandparents with us.
