Onomatopoeia !!!

BANG, STOMP, WHAM, ROAR, DRIP, SLURP, BOOM, SSSSSS, ZAP, FLAP, WOOF, BOING!!

These are all different examples of onomatopoeia. 
We had a lot of fun learning about onomatopoeia. Make sure to ask your child what it means!!

Onomatopoeia is word that describes a sound, and it is amazing how often we read it in books or even say them when talking!



We wrote a sentence using our favourite onomatopoeia and did some art! Come and check them out in class!!

Papakura Marae


What an amazing experience we had on Papakura Marae. 

It was very special how they called us onto the Marae, and we slowly walked forward.
We had to take our shoes off to go into the Whare. There were so many amazing carvings in the walls and old photos of ancestors. 

Click on this link to see a slideshow of our photos from the Papakura Marae.

Book Week!


What an action packed week we had around Book Week! 

Each child was dressed up so uniquely and with great imagination to their costumes! 

We enjoyed reading a variety of books, having fun activities following books we read, reading to puppets and Liz (Ms Frizzles chameleon.)
