We 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!
