Room 1 Museum Visit:

Room 1 is visiting the Museum on Thursday 23rd of October. We will be leaving at 1:15pm on that day. We will be travelling by bus.

We are going to hear the story of the Horouta Waka, how the Kumara came to New Zealand, all about Kiwa and Paoa.


Room 1 will need some help with their homework next week. We will be learning our Pepeha and learning about our family tree. With the family tree we would like the students to bring it in and show the class. They have to have the first and last name of the person they are talking about, it is their choice to  add the date of birth. The students must go up 3 or more generations.
