2019 Welcome Back

Kia ora koutou, Annyong haseyo, Ni hao ma, Greetings. Welcome back to 2019. We hope you all had a great summer holiday, enjoying the beautiful sunshine. 

Our students have been getting to know each other and their new groups through sharing a little bit about themselves. We had lots of fun writing an 'I Am' Poem. Check out some of these below. 

We hope you enjoy watching our learning journey continue this year.

Cupcake Fun

We thought we would end the year with some yummy cupcakes. Some of Mrs Schischika's and Miss Fenner's groups joined together to make the cupcakes for all our ESOL students to then ice and decorate. 
It is amazing how much learning happens through hands on experiences like baking. 
We looked closely at what a recipe was, including ingredients and utensils. Through baking we can also build an understanding of measurement.  

When we iced the cupcakes we had a go at using fondant. We learnt that fondant is a sugar paste that you can eat. The students had so much fun molding the fondant into a decoration for the top of their cupcakes. We started out exploring more 2D shapes and then realised we could make more intricate things in 3D shapes. This was so much fun!
