We have made some great artwork that we call 'Rainbowland'. We were inspired by an artist called Fredrich Hundertwasser who painted bright colourful artwork and designed very cool buildings. We designed our own buildings in our own Rainbowland and painted them very carefully with dye. What do you think? We think it would be cool to live there!

Earth studio assembly!

We had a great assembly last week with 3 fantastic children from LZ6 leading the way! Caleb, Dorothy and Brianna were amazing speakers/leaders for the assembly - well done!

We also got to show off our Rainbowland artwork and our certificate winners were Michelle and Riki for the awesome effort they are putting into everything they do!

Kelly Tarlton's!

In week 2 we went on a trip to Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World.

We went as part of 'Setting the scene' for our term 2 focus of 'Think Blue - Water'.

We saw lots of cool sea animals like sharks, fish, stingrays, penguins and an octopus!

Fancy feet parade!

Last week we held a 'Fancy Feet parade' to celebrate the official signing of our Travelwise plan. All of us got to dress up our feet in whatever crazy way we could think of. There were jandals and slippers and wheelies and flippers!!! Max the pukeko from Travelwise came to our assembly as well as lots of other important guests! It was lots of fun!!

Life Education Caravan!

We have loved visiting the Life Education caravan over the past week! Celia and Harold the giraffe have been talking to us about what it means to be healthy. We need to have a balanced diet, keep ourselves clean, do some exercise, drink lots of water, have good air to breathe, a decent nights sleep and love from our family and friends to have a healthy mind and body!

Ratty Tatty Cats!

Sorry it has been a few weeks since our last post - been rather busy all round and our poor blog has been neglected!

But never fear, we are back and look at our awesome art! We read a big book called Ratty Tatty Cat and decided to make our own cats using chalk, crayon and dye. We had to be really careful with the chalk to make our lines big and bold. When we coloured in it was important not to go over the chalk and then the dye went over the top of it all. It was like magic because the chalk all turned black. We think we did a great job!
