We have been learning all about how the mighty warrior Kupe journeyed from Hawaiiki and was the first person to call it Aoeotearoa 'The land of the long white cloud' as that was what he saw on his arrival. They also learned all about how other islanders have voyaged here and with what. They have done a fantastic job of their drawings, animations and writing. Well done Room 6 keep up the good work.
Sateki has done a really creative job of turning his bad pirate into a good pirate. See if you can see his pirate in your head using his words. His goal was to slow down while he was recording. Something he finds very difficult to do. He has achieved it in this recording. Well done Sateki.
In Term 3 Room 6 are learning all about mighty mariners. They are learning why people moved, how they moved and what qualities make an adventurer. They will be learning all about Kupe, Abel Tasman, James Cook and Peter Blake. We will also be visiting the Maritime Museum. In writing we have been looking at characters and their personalities, and learning how to write paragraphs.
