Well the concert arrived and we performed really well, the caterpillar was ready and off we went, it was so exciting. We also sang purerehua and did our haka which we really like doing.

We made a caterpillar for the Maori Pacific Island Festival at the Edgar Centre. We sang Noke Niki Nuku and the caterpillar walked infront of the children while they sang. Then we sang Purerehua, it was really difficult because we had to walk on our knees.

It was so much fun today experimenting with colour and patterns. We created designs on the table with paint then placed a piece of paper on top to transfer the pattern to the paper. What lovely patterns we made.

Today we took advantage of the strong windy day and took the children to the local park. We tied plastic bags onto wool and had such a great time watching them blowing in the wind.

The Trip to Chancala Farm

Our big day out was so much fun. We woke to a fine morning and everyone was so excitied.
After we climbed off the bus, we were all given a bucket with bread pieces in it. Off we went around the farm feeding the animals through the fences. Some children were very brave especially when the huge tongue of the cow scooped up the bread.
The sheep were very tame and poked their heads into the buckets to help themselves to the bread.
We must go again another time.

We had cherries for morning tea today. Cherrries are sweet and juicy - only the stones and stalks were left.
