Samoan Language Week

This week we celebrate the rich texture of the Samoan language, Gagana Samoa, and culture through events and celebrations happening throughout the country. A BIG thank you to Faalua Panini (Vice's mum) for coming to class today and teaching us how to count in Samoan.

Our learning

We have been learning about what symmetry is, as well as how to measure weight and volume.

 For our symmetry learning we created a name alien, where we made a mirror image of our names using a symmetrical line.

 For our volume we measured and compared liquid in different containers to determine which had more and which had less. It was interesting to see how the different scales work to measure weight.

Duffy Role-Model Assembly Term 1

Room 2 with our Duffy role model Peter Fa'afiu and our Warehouse sponsors. He shared with us how he came to NZ as a young boy, not understanding any English and how reading books helped him. And now he is a CEO of a successful business and a leader in his community. We love reading our Duffy books.

Get NZ Writing Initiative

Room 2 participated in a countrywide initiative from Warehouse Stationary. We had to complete a poster about who we are, draw a map of our classroom, write a poem and colour the postcards that created a poster. We all loved doing our bit and was super excited to post our special parcel to Nelson, on the South Island. 

After 2 weeks of waiting, Evergreen School, sent us a parcel with everything they completed. See the photos below. 

We looked on Google Map where Nelson was. We are so happy to be able to connect with people so far from us, and yet we have so much in common.
