I don’t know who is more excited in Nikau the teachers or the students! Our learning focus for term 2 is Space. Space will flow through English with explanation writing, myths and legends and poetry being the types of writing we are learning about. How far is the Moon away from Earth? What is the mass of the Moon? Luckily we are looking at measurement this term so we can figure out what measurement units we can use to measure these; we might need a few more rulers though.
Once again Caroline returns to school to enhance our Art programme, we are going to dismantle old computers, videos and other donated bits and pieces. Then create some amazing kinetic art out of these cool things.
We will be creating other great pieces please come and have a look.
PE is moving away from the round ball and learning about the oval one. In Health we will be running the ‘Kia Kaha’ programme in conjunction with Officer Dan so we can be strong with ourselves and be nice to others.
Space Art using line, colour and space to create our own SPACETASTIC ART with pastel using different techniques such as rubbing, cross hatching, crumbling and crushing to create different effects.
Does your shadow fall in the same place at the same time everyday? We created a sun dial that would cast a shadow. At 1.45pm twice a week (or when the sun shines) we go out to the exact same place and rule a line to show were the shadow has fallen.
