This week the focus is on celebrations. We are going to share with the world, the celebrations and festivals that are important to us. We should learn a lot about other cultures as we explore other blogs – exciting.
Here is the link to the instructions for this week. Note there is also a google form for you to fill out where you select the celebrations and festivals you take part in.
I have approved so many wonderful comments on our blog posts since we have started. This week would be a great chance to make sure you are reciprocating – spend time responding to comments and making new comments on participant blogs.
This week we have been writing about our holidays – sharing our news. But, rather than write just boring recounts, we were inspired by Marci Ridlon who wrote a lovely poem “That was summer”. We used this as to share our holiday news. Then we published it in a collaborative google slide.
I was so proud of Room 5’s performance at assembly this afternoon. They performed a waiata in preparation for next week being Maori language week and then to acknowledge Tongan language week they did a hiva. It is not easy doing this in front of the whole school – they were very brave.
