Making tukutuku patterns

                                              Tukutuku patterns

Last week my classmates and I were making takutuku patterns. First I used my plain white piece of cardboard which is called a loom. It had 10 thin lines on it which I had to cut along very carefully.  I took my black and red paper strips and weaved it through the white paper until I got a clear and vibrant pattern.
I had to stick down the ends so I didn't lose them. Then I gave my mat a 'haircut.'
Ms.Agnew took a photo and here is my photo.

Smart Relationship Qualities

Today Ms.Collins taught us Smart Relationship qualities like 
Interesting, joyful, beautiful, smart and positive.
I was with Desiree and we had to decide how we could win the competition of building the tallest tower.
We started by planning for ten minutes how we could use 12 pieces of spaghetti sticks and 8 marshmallows.
After morning tea we had to actually build the tower. Ours was 17cm and it stood without falling for 3 seconds. 
After that Ms.Collins took pictures and we could eat the  marshmallow tower. It was a good activity to do to show how strong our friendship is.

Matariki slide show


We have been learning about Matariki and then we had to make a presentation to share with the class. I thought it was very interesting to learn about why this time of the year is important to Maori people. Enjoy my presentation.

Catholic schools' Day

On Tuesday it was the Catholic's Schools' Day! 
I was so EMBARRASSED because I had to read in Mass in front of so many people! 

We went to the church and the readers had to sit on the long seats on the left hand side. At church I was the reader. I was the first one to read because Sister Evalesi thinks that I'm really good at reading because I've done it many times. Also children from St Pius X and St Ignatius schools read too. I was really nervous because I had to read in front of 400 people. 
After that we all had lunch. St Ignatius and St Pius children sat under the canopy to eat but we sat inside our classroom.
After the bell rang the other schools went back to their buses because it was raining and we couldn't play sport together. Then Mrs Agnew came into the class and we had a choice to play Lego, blocks, drawing, reading books or typing club on our chrome books. We had the best day EVER!
