P1070443P1000331We have been learning about friendships and we love doing things with our buddies from Room 2 and 5. First our class painted pictures of our buddies. Then we worked together to make Autumn leaf prints and Koru block prints.  Later our class cut them out and made them into our clothes.  We also wrote similes about our buddies.  We hope you enjoy them!P1070441P1070178P1070439P1070195P1070436P1070224P1070440P1000332P1070438P1070192P1070437P1070204P1070434P1070209P1070435P1070213P1070433  P1070188   P1070442P1070214P1070527

What Has Been Happening This Week In Room 6, Matahui Primary School?



Phoebe Robertson is currently working on her Gold Project, which is to design and build a new “spaceship” play structure for the juniors. To help fund raise for her Gold she is selling Waffles to students on Fridays at lunch time.

Here are some photos of Phoebe and her team making waffles for the hungry students.

Room 6 have been holding a barbeque every Friday after full assembly. The delicious sausages have proved to be very popular! The money we gain from the sale of sausages is going toward the new technology workshop or future school camps.

In our first class post we would like to celebrate the wonderful success of the Year 7/8

Amazing Race team who WON this years competition. This is true testament to the

ability that Matahui students have to work well as a team, think flexibly to solve problems

and thrive in education outside the classroom.
