A busy Week 10. Thanks to Te Pouahi!

We had a very busy week in week 10! The whole school visited an expo that Totara Syndicate held to explain their proposals for the student council. It was really noisy and hard to hear. All the children voted for their favourite proposal at the end of their visit to the expo.
The highlight of that week for many was our visits to Te Pouahi (Rooms 15, 16 and 17). Te Pouahi children took workshops and taught groups of us new skills and information. There were workshops on turtles, string games, sign language, cartoon drawing and many more. Thank you to Whaea Trina, Whaea Jo and Whaea Carly and to all the tamariki in Te Pouahi. We learnt lots and had lots of fun.

Each Thursday Room 3 goes to the art centre for Music with Bridget. The year 4s had already been there last year. So far the class has had 4 sessions and we will have more next term. We learnt some words to do with Music, beat, tempo, pitch and dynamics. We played this game that we had to copy Bridget what she did the sound when she did low that person had to do low. We can't wait to have more music sessions!
