Buddy Time - Art

Today our big buddies showed us what they have been learning in class. They have been learning how to paint with water colours.
We had lots of fun learning some new techniques. 


Our Korowais - Cloaks

This term's topic is Hauora (well-being). We have been talking about what makes us feel happy and safe, and what makes us special.


On our korowai (cloaks) we have written words that describe what makes us feel happy and safe. 
Inside our korowai  are words that describe our personalities .... like “happy”, “friendly, “kind”.
Around us are the things we are good at and the things that we enjoying doing.
