Diwali

Last week we celebrated Diwali across the curriculum in Rm 17. Stazia and Eashwar brought in Indian sweets for us to try and Keira and I received Henna tattoos.

For literacy Room 17  wrote an information reports about Diwali. They also researched and answered a range of comprehension questions about Diwali and the 'Story of Diwali'. We learnt about Rangoli Patterns and had ago at drawing them. Each child chose their favourite pattern and painted it on paper plates.


Swimming

For the next 8 weeks,  Tui Team will be participating in the 'Field Of Dreams' swimming programme. Here are a few photos from Lesson 1.
