Kia ora. We are a bunch of Year 6, 7 and 8 kids at Mahana School. Our theme to start the year is Manaakitanga - caring for each other and our environment too. We are looking forward to sharing our work on this blog.
Please leave us some feedback in the comments.
Kōtuku have been researching how plastic affects our environment and what we can do about it. We plan to gift each school family a 'kit' of items that eliminate the use of plastic. Here are some action shots of our productivity.
Today we made shapes out of string. We got put into groups of three or four, then we got a piece of paper with some shapes we had to try to make. Some of the shapes were a square, cube and a star. The 3D shapes were hard and some of the group did not complete them.
Today we had No Child Left Inside but it was raining so we did it inside. We did a really cool activity where you had to make a hula hoop house and crawl through it. Also we made a huge tower with three on top of each other.
And here are a few photos of our Rugby team that hit the ground running at a Year 7/8 tournament this week. Plenty of smiles and enthusiasm for doing it all over again next year. That's a winning effort!
