Drift was in charge of making the rat traps on the Island.  Skylah says she enjoyed decorating the sides with art. Nivanna found she had to use teamwork and argued the whole time with Drift. Taungarangi enjoyed using the screwdriver. People let each other have a turn which was good aroha!

Graham describes his experience of planting trees as extreme. He struggled putting his gloves on! William tells us that we need to learn how to make sure the hole is big enough for the plant to fit in and to pull the grass away to do this. Taungarangi found it fun and learnt how to use the GPS!

Room 11 are experimenting with some magazine pictures. We are learning to find and make patterns to tell a story we can see. Yesterday during coding we learnt it was important to be able to see detail and changes in patterns to debug our programs. This artwork helps us look at everything on a page and pick bits we want to focus on.
Nivanna: In my first one I only looked at one thing in the picture. In the second one I picked out lots of interesting objects and made these all stand out. I was a lot more creative and saw more.
Aurora: I did the same and found I really liked the second try.

Room 11 students were off to various meetings this afternoon so Room 10 children came to and did some art. They learnt how to blend and scratch pastels on black paper. They pinned their work on the wall so they could stand back and see what else they might add before they were finished.
