Term 2 Week 7

Everybody in Room 1 came to school on Wednesday and Thursday! Mrs Bingham bought us some chocolate fish on Friday to celebrate. 

We have been learning about Matariki this week. First we wrote down all the things we already know and we knew a lot! Then we asked some questions like "How did Matariki begin?" and "How old are the stars?" We read some stories about Matariki to look for answers. Our favourite is the Seven Stars of Matariki which you can listen to here: The Seven Stars of Matariki.

On Tuesday Mrs Bingham gave us some string and we learned how to make the 'Cat's Whiskers'. It was quite tricky to learn but we all felt proud when we finally got it. We took our string home and learnt to make lots of other string patterns:


We watched a cool dominoes video just for fun. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

  1. I have enjoyed reading about your Matariki learning. What a fabulous, fun thing to do.
    I can remember playing string games when I went to Kaikohe West School, a long, long time ago.
    Do you think you could show me your string game please?
