Matariki at our Whare Mātauranga

Throughout this week, Helen has been encouraging our tamariki to create a star or a feather. The stars are for the Matariki display and the feathers are for the Korowai that will be proudly displayed in our Library. Both projects are not yet finished, so I will make another post about these two beautiful projects next week.

Drawing day in the Library.

As a teacher I really love being in the Library when it's drawing day. Our students show great Manaakitanga, Manawanuitanga and Kaitiakitanga when engaging in this activity.

Manaakitanga = They are kind, caring and practice sharing.

Manawanuitanga = They focus and work hard to complete their drawing/masterpiece.

Kaitiakitanga = They use both sides of their paper, put it flat in the recycle box and they tidy up the drawing equipment before leaving.

There is also another reason why I like being present for drawing day................

I get given some FANTASTIC pictures!!!!!!!!

Come along on drawing day, I would love to see your artistic talents.

May the fourth be with you!!!!

May the 4th is Star Wars day. One of our student librarians celebrated this day by dressing up as one of the characters from Star Wars. Do you know what character she is?

It was also drawing day, here is one drawing that fitted in with the theme.
