Kia rere te Aroha Project

Image
In responding to the Christchurch attack, Room 32 initiated a project, on behalf of MVS, named Kia rere te Aroha, which means 'To fly with Love'. The aim is to fold 1000 paper cranes as a symbol of love and good wishes toward those who are affected by this event. 

We prepared a script for an advertisement on MVTV to promote this project. Mr. Gover filmed and edited the clips. 

Zoe, Ethan and Jimmy designed beautiful posters to be displayed in each classroom. 

We worked together and contributed actively to make this project happen. Well done Room 32!

Trip to the Auckland Museum

Trip to the Auckland Museum during term 1. A huge thanks to all the parent helpers for making this trip a success. Couldn't have done it without your support! 














Making Tree Huts

Image
At the start of the year, we learned about the value and significance of the Treaty of Waitangi. We read a story titled 'The Tree Hut Treaty' to investigate how a treaty is relevant to our learning environment. 

Students were inspired and were excited about the concept of making a tree hut. For Art, the students were given the brief to work collaboratively, to design and build a model of a tree hut. 

The students showed creativity in their designs and constructions. They were well prepared and organised to plan and source materials for their creations. 

Well done Room 32!

For PE, we have been working on team building. We are learning how to problem solve, and communicate with each other effectively, to achieve a common goal.
