Learning Skills for Wearable Arts

Hi everyone if you kids haven't already told you we are doing a Wearable Arts Show on The Rambustification day on the last Wednesday of the term (13th December). Our theme is going to be based on our studio Guardian Tawhirimatea focussing on  'The Weather'. 

We have been busy learning sewing, making different colours with paints, painting on different surfaces, weaving, plaiting, finger knitting, using different materials for different purposes, cutting, sticking different materials together, using hot glue guns. You name it we've been learning it! Check out the photos below.

More photos to come.

Golf in Schools

We have been having golf sessions this term from Golf in Schools. We have thoroughly enjoyed it and this week we attended the Rawhiti Golf Course where we practised our putting and then played 3 holes. It was awesome. Thanks to the parents who came along and helped us.

This term we have been practising for the athletics at least 3 times per week. We have all really enjoyed learning the different events and practising our technique along with enjoying the sunshine! Check out this big jump from Edwin....

Check out us enjoying our Golf in Schools Programme! We are getting better every week and we are looking forward to playing a Rawhiti Golf Course next week.


Kindness Week

Last week was kindness week at Rawhiti School. We made kindness rocks to put around the community, practised giving compliments, learned and practised the school kindness dance/routine and we also had our own random acts of kindness buddy. Erika and Johanna from Mindful movers also took us through some mindfulness which was awesome! We are all on such a high from all the kindness that has been happening around the school!

Below is Willow being given compliments from all her lovely studio mates! Look at that smile 😃

Here's a video of us doing the kindness dance/routine

Year 4 Overnight Stay

Last Tuesday the Year 4's from Tāwhirimatea, Tāne Mahuta and Pāptuanuku came back to school and enjoyed dinner with their families. Then their families left and the fun began. We tucked up in our beds, watched a movie and enjoyed some supper before going to sleep. The next day we went to Orana Park which was incredible! We got to see the new attraction, the gorillas. They were amazing to watch. Everyone had a blast. Thanks anyone who helped with the organisation or supported at Orana Park we couldn't do it without your help!

Now the Year 4's are ready to go for camp next year! Well done everyone :).

Pen Pals

This term and last term we have been writing to a Pen Pal within school. We wrote to them each week which was a strategy/programme that was put in place to help us improve our writing. Everyone was really excited to meet their Pen Pals and we enjoyed some kai after the long wait to see who our mystery Pen Pal was!
