Visit to the Kowhai Satelitte at Heretaunga Intermediate

Today many of the students froom Room 2 had a fabulous time visiting the Intermediate students at Kowhai school. It was a wonderful chance for our older Central students to become familiar with the Intermediate classrooms. There were fun minibeast crafts to make and the school put on a fabulous morning tea for students and staff. It was great seeing students interact so well with each other and we are keen to visit again.

A big thank you to Kowhai Intermediate for hosting us!

Hastings Boys' High School performing Arts

Today C2 and the other classes from Hastings Central attended this amazing performance from Kapa Haka and Pasifika groups from Hastings Boys' High School students. It was inspiring to watch such talented young men perform with such passion and skill. It is wonderful for our Maori and Pasifika students to see their culture valued and expressed. A big thank you to Hastings Boys' for performing for our students!

Topic Science - Mini Beasts

Barry made a beautiful Spider out of salt dough for our mural.  

The students enjoys creating spiders this week.  They made savoury spiders using noodles and cheerios.  Then they made sweet spiders ensuring that they had two body parts, eight legs and between zero and 12 eyes.  The students are very motivated and really enjoy this way of learning.

Topic - Minibeasts

Room 2 are learning through art and food this term about our topic.  We have two focus questions that we are asking about each minibeast we study each week.  They are where do they live?  And What do they eat?  The children are really enjoying this topic especially when it comes to Friday and we do our cooking.

Room 2 went to the Aquarium.

This week we went to the aquarium and the students were really engaged interacting and looking at the different animals that were there.  We learned lots of interesting facts. It was really good to see the animals close up instead of just seeing them on a screen.
