Friday Reflections

On Thursday, Room 10 went to the Grey Lynn Library. We walked for 10 minutes to get there. When we got there I was so excited to use my library card. There were two ladies there who helped us. I got out a rhino book for my report. We stayed there for 30 minutes and looked around the library. Then we walked back to school. I felt happy on the way back because I had a good time. I liked going to the library because it was so fun and I learned lots about animals.By Ethan.

Nearly every day this week we did art. For art we have been learning to do scraffito. We also did drawing and painting. My group painted a lion. The colours we chose for our
scraffito background were pink, purple and green. It looks really good. The part I liked most about it was the drawing and painting. I only sort of liked scratching because the black paint got under my fingernails. I really really liked painting because our lion was so big that we could choose lots of colours. Art was great this week.

The thing I enjoyed most this week was PE because I liked playing tapawai which is a traditional Maori ball game. We won 2:1 after we had split our class in two and challenged each other. I scored one point and the other point we got because the defender knocked over the cone. My favourite position is shooter because I am good at it. In total I've scored six points but two didn't count. I felt really happy playing tapawai.

  1. Good writing Ethan.
    I LOVE Libraries.
    I'm glad you had a happy time there.
    I think Mrs Hamilton spends a LOT of time there.

  2. Hey room 10 we think that your class has been busy working hard. We love reading the reflections of Art and P.E. Our teaching is looking for good ideas for our next Art focus. I hope she looks into your class. Well done room 10 kids. Room 16

  4. Kia ora Ethan, Amy and Matt
    I really enjoyed reading your Friday reflections. I love going to the library and reading lots of interesting books too. Your art looks amazing, we might and try that later on and we haven't played Tapawai yet, it sounds like lots of fun. Keep up the great writing Room 10.
