Our Buddies

We love having buddy hub with Pohutukawa every week! Miss Plimmer shared some great photos from last Friday's session. They show the rich interactions of our tamariki, learning together, from each other. It is a real joy to be a part of.

Batik art

Last week, we looked at Batik art and had a go ourselves using paper, crayons, indian ink and our crumpling paper skills. Come in and have a look. The effect is really interesting.

Rimu Architects 2

Our second STEM challenge was a simple one, yet it involved loads of learning muscles. The focus was on Making Links and Reasoning. The challenge was building columns and finding out which shapes were the strongest. Watch the video below to see our architects in action.

Our groups showed good collaboration skills. Here is a great example from Mac, Benji, Amanjot and Jordan S. They continued their collaboration in completing their presentation to a high standard.

Crime Scene

Watch Bella-Marie, Kaydence, Halo and Amie in another entertaining detective video. Some wonderful acting on display. These girls have strong powers of Reasoning!

Warning: gruesome scenes may offend.

These detectives have been stretching their Reasoning Learning Muscles. They make a good case! They have also included some advertising - it's all about monetising these days! Well done Karamea, Rain, Piper, Maia and Lauryn (camera work)!
