Our family went up the mountain today. We went on a walk to Dawson Falls. It was very fun. We got some water out of the river and drank the water. It was the best water I have ever tasted!!! We then had lunch at the cafe and then went to the visitor centre. We also went and saw the Dawson falls power station that was awesome!!! It was a fantastic day!!!!
This is a fantastic picture Katelyn. It looks like fun and I reckon that water would've been great tasting. I might have to take my family up there one day.

Thank you to Emily, Lucas, Brylee, and Meg who came into Room 4 during our writing lesson to help some of our students complete their recounts. The group helped edit our writing and assisted with posting onto their blogs.
On Sunday we went to Macy's 4th birthday party. Macy had a ladybird theme. She had a bouncy castle and heaps of cool friends to play with. We had a fun day.
This is a photo of the delicious ladybird cake and my friend Macy.

Tivaevae on PhotoPeach
Room 4 have been learning about the Cook Islands and specifically about tivaevae. Tivaevae is a special quilt that is used in many Cook Island ceremonies such as birthdays, funerals, and special hair cutting ceremonies. For art we are making our own class tivaevae. Students learnt about the designs on tivaevae and about the Cook Island Hibiscus flower. So far we have made a draft of our tivaevae on paper. Next week we start painting on individual calico squares which will then be sewn together to make our tivaevae. Thank you to Mrs Turnbull who cut out the calico squares.
