All About Room 6

We worked collaboratively to make slides that introduce us. We wanted to share it with out Tuhi Mai Atu classes and everyone that looks at our blog. Our families also helped us during Talanoa Conferences!

As you can see we had some challenges. Some of us were absent, some of us wrote on other peoples slides and some of us were designing our page for a long time.

In the end we found that we could all post a photo, shapes, do a background and be respectful of other peoples work.

We hope you enjoy reading the ones that are finished and we would love you to ask us some questions.

Ooblek slime!

We are learning to write a recount about a time we made ooblek slime

Food colouring
Ice creme container
Cups or jugs

On Friday the 9th of February  we Made some oobleck. The first thing we had to do is we grabbed the cornstarch and put the food colouring in the cornstarch. Then we put the water in the cornstarh with the food colouring. Next we mixed it together and it turned green and when I touched it it felt like glue that was dry and then it was wet. It was a solid then a liquid. That is it and it was fun.

The end

Hoiho fun day

For our last trip.of the year the Hoiho team walked to the Wesley Community Centre. We had a walk through the markets, played at the park and had a picnic. We also did fun races and athletics on the Lovelock track. We had long jump, sack races, shotput, discus, relays and egg and spoon races! Thank you to our wonderful helpers. We had an amazing day and hope you did too! 

Diwali rangoli patterns

This term our inquiry is Light and Colour. We enjoyed celebrating the Indian Festival of Light known as Diwali by creating ranging patterns with Room 7 and 8. We enjoyed being buddies with them, helping them and being awesome role models.

What a fun day gardening, harvesting and making kale muffins!


We have been reading the myth and legend - In the beginning. We created plays, character descriptions and poems. The poem UIRA in Junior Journal 44 is about on of the sons from the myth and legend. We created a response to the poem using the Maori words we know. Check out two different responses below - A poem and a story!
