Local Historical Knowledge

As a class we have researched what makes a good poster. We decided on a criteria and have made our own posters sharing the knowledge that we learnt about our School Houses, Pourakino, Aparima, Longwoods and Takitimu. Here are some completed posters which include images, colours connected to our houses, new information that we discovered, a large title and a Maori connection.


Another great week in Room 6! Here are our most recent Maker space (Technology) creations: Casey Flett’s army tank (Karsten Tyler helped), Harper Morris’s sleigh (Santa’s), Karsten Tyler’s maze, Jean-Luc Joubert’s rocket launcher, Rylee-rae Manahi-McColl’s rabbits and Emilee Andrew’s xmas themed owl tree.
