We are racing through Term 3!

Out topic this term is about Poutini the Taniwha who swims up and down the West Coast.
The children produced some great Taniwha art work to brighten up the classroom. 




We also co-wrote a poem about Poutini snatching Waitaki and running away from Taamahua.


Our sharing is still continuing to be very popular with the children. They look forward to their sharing each week.



Last week Mrs Ealam took both Room 1 and Room 2 on the teachers CRT day. She and the children worked hard on a beautiful mosaic art mural about pollution in the sea.






The year is zooming by in Room 1!

We ended Term 2 with some cool rock creations thanks to Mrs Lockhart. Here are some of the lovely creations.





We had a visit from two very cute rabbits, they gave the children lots to talk about on how to look after them.



Our topic for term 2 was to finish learning about our school. Room 1 interviewed the teachers about their jobs, their interests and how long they had been teaching at Awahono. We all learnt how the school was formed and which buildings were the original ones before Ahaura, Totara Flat, Moonlight and Ngahere combined to form Awahono. Room 1 ended their study by making a mural of the school.


Sharing in Room 1 was a highlight each week with the children looking forward to their sharing day. We had some clever ideas for the letter and blend each week.
