Our Amazing Cats!

Today we finished our Laurel Burch inspired cat artworks. 

We think ours look terrific. We used warm and cool colours to dye our pictures.  We really like how the colours have merged together. Please come into our classroom and have a look.

Can you think of any words that rhyme with cat?  
Next week we will add some to our display! 

 Laurel Burch was an American artist known for her very colourful paintings of animals. You might like to  check out some of Laurel Burch's fantastic cats too. Click here.

Today we had rain!

No school today and so much rain!

Good luck to Sophie who is a finalist.

Fantastic Friday

Whaia Krystal works with us every Friday helping us to  learn te reo Maori.   We love singing and dancing with her.
We have been learning our personal mihi. These are a greeting that tells people who we are - our names, our school, the place where we live, our mountain and our river using Maori sentences. 
We are getting really good! Ka pai!
 Thank you Lachlan for taking these great photos of Hunter and Deacon who are making cat masks. 

Today we also farewelled Joshua from our classroom.  Good luck at your new school, we will miss you!

Watch out next week for our fantastic Laurel Burch inspired Cat paintings.  They are beginning to look awesome.
