Wow! What an incredible week

We have had such an incredible past few weeks.
I will put some of the highlights below!

We have been working on our art exhibition pieces which are inspired by Tom Schulten 

Here are just a few of our pieces

We also performed our sasa for middle school assembly last week as well

Even though Mrs Waterworth was away sick she was super proud of the effort we put into our performance.

We even had a surprise visit from Miss Lu and she recorded our sasa to show Mrs Waterworth:

Talofa Lava and welcome to Samoan Language Week

Talofa Lava. Today was the first day of Samoan Language week.

This year's theme is:
"Ma’au i lou ofaga. Maua’a lou fa’asinomaga” –

“Keep your identity alive to thrive”

Today we were learning how to say hello in Samoan. Our challenge was to use Talofa Lava in a creative way.
We decided to role play using Talofa Lava when we were shopping.

We hope you enjoy our videos =)

Amazing Art & Lovely Literacy

This week has been another amazing week of fun learning. 

We have completed the next steps in our artwork. 

We are so proud of our effort!

We have been studying Dr Seuss for reading and writing. Last week and this week we focused on the Cat in the Hat. 

We created our own Cat in the Hat craft and wrote descriptions to go with our craft.

Below is one our extraordinary pieces of descriptive writing:

The Cat in Hat

Just then… the door flew open with a CRASH, and a fluffy black and white tabby cat, that was very jumpy, bounded in. His long tail (which, by the way, was black and white) was swinging so violently that it almost hit me in the head. He was wearing white gloves and a hat. He was also wearing a weird bow-tie.
“Let’s have some fun!” he shouted happily.
Then as he ran past me, some of his fur rubbed against me. It was the softest thing I had ever felt. When he reached the end of the hall he said,
“Come on! What are you waiting for?”
His voice sounded like a boy’s voice. I was so surprised that I couldn’t move. Suddenly, I smelled a terrible odour. It was just then that I realised, that the Cat in the Hat smelled of dead fish. YUCK! The smell was so overwhelming I could almost taste it on my tongue.
