Taniwha paintings

We used paint to create our own Taniwha's.  
We added natural materials to create pattern and texture.  
We then used a small paint brush to add contrasting colours and details.  
Check out the latest New Zealand artist's work!

Small Ball Skills

Sonja and Greg came to teach us how to throw a small ball.
It was a lot of fun.
We decided to practice with hoops on the fence as a target.
Step 1: Stand side on to my target and point where I want the ball to go.

Step 2: Use a muscle arm action

Step 3: Step into the pass
Step 4: Follow through arm moves down and across

Harvest Festival

Our School celebrated our wonderful class gardens 
by having a Harvest Festival.  
We made pizza with our special sauce recipe!

Ms Bobsien gave us a watermelon.
We cut it into ½’s  and then into ¼’s

Then we had the most terrible job.
We had to be taste testers to make sure the pizza and watermelon
 were good enough to eat!
Check out the smiles on our faces!

Eating!!! on PhotoPeach
All the classes took their food to the hall to share.
We got to taste all the different dishes.
There were lettuce sandwiches, potatoes, salsa, 
spinach bread and zucchini loaf.
What a feast!
