Week 5: Singing

Do you enjoy singing? Miss Fortes underestimated how much we like singing. She thought we wouldn't like this song because it was about a little girl called Moana... we proved her wrong! The girls sang beautifully and the boys really carried their voices through with so much pride. We are going to introduce this song at our next Hay Park Way assembly so the whole school can sing it.

Do you have any favourite assembly songs you like to sing?

Week 4: Basketball

This term we have been lucky enough to start basketball coaching sessions.  Here is a short video of us practicing a jump stop.

After our lesson we went back to class and brainstormed some of the new vocabulary we learned and put these into a google slides presentation so we can refer back to them before our next lesson.

Week 3: Tuhi mai, Tuhi atu

Hello blogging world

We have been working on a short presentation to introduce ourselves to our new Tuhi Mai tuhi atu family.  We created this video using iMovie and our beautiful faces. 

Grab some pop corn, take a seat and enjoy meeting Pohatu class.

Week 1: First blog post for 2017

Welcome back to a new year of exciting learning in Pohatu class!

Today was our first day back at school where we had loads of fun learning and getting to know each other. We did this by working in groups to scan QR codes Miss Fortes had put up around the room. Each QR code had its own question - Christian and Bob found the QR codes that were hidden under a table and shelf.

The questions helped us find out that the overarching theme for 2017 is Hononga (connections) and our context this term is 'identity'. They also helped us remember a few other general knowledge questions.

One of the questions was about acting out the 'Hay Park Way'. Instead of just acting it out, our groups decided to create short films demonstrating the Hay Park Way. It was really exciting to watch our videos together on the big screen.

Thank you for reading our blog post. We look forward to you joining us on our learning journey this year.
