Holiday Learning

Welcome back to the final term of 2020 everyone. We have a busy term ahead with pets day, colour fun run, boxing, powerhouse workshops, swimming, book week, just to name a few! 

We had a literacy and numeracy challenge happening over the holiday break and it was pleasing to see so much home learning happening. Below is a presentation sharing a few of the wonderful projects that were happening. We will continue to add to this as more come in.

Calendar Art

This year to help fundraise for our school trips we are selling some products containing our children's art work. The children had two art sessions with Miss Wilson to produce the art and attached is a sample of your child's art work. Go through the slideshow until you find your child's art work.

You can buy a calendar for $12, a set of 8 blank cards for $12, a mouse pad for $14, a sketch pad for $14 and a diary for $14.

Your child has been given an order form and we require all orders to be back in by Friday the 16th of October, which is the Friday of week 1 term 4. Delivery will be November so these make great Christmas gifts.

Thanks in advance for your support.

The team at Awahono School.

How To Make A Quality Blog Comment...

We have been learning how to write quality blog comments on blogs. We know that we need a nice friendly greeting and share what we loved about the blog post. Next we could share something that we know about the topic (this shows the reader that we have read their work and are interested in it). We can then offer something helpful, for example we could say: Maybe you could... (and offer something about their learning where they could deepen their understanding or learning). Lastly we finish with a question to find out more information. We practised writing a quality blog comment on a fridge activity. Check out our google slide below to see how you can be a quality blog commenter like Room Two.

Amazing Bucket Filling Ideas

 We have been learning about how to bucket fill in our classroom. Bucket filling is doing and saying kind things to other people. When you bucket fill you fill your bucket and somebody else's. It makes everybody feel really happy to bucket fill! As a class we brainstormed ideas about bucket filling and how we could each fill our own bucket and somebody else's. We have shared the ideas we came up with on a google slide below. See if you can comment on other ideas on how we could fill people's buckets...

Amazing Wearable Arts Costumes!

In term two we planned how to make our very own wearable arts costume. We spent the term gathering recyclable materials to make our costumes. As the term went by we created our costumes. They started to look very good! On the second Friday of term three we walked around the catwalk a couple of times in front of our families, friends and judges to show off our wearable arts costumes. Some students got a certificate for the most creative, most original, most backstory, and most recyclable costumes and they received a prize. Have a look at some of our costumes we created on the google slide below.
