We are entering our daily steps(using our pedometers) into the soccer website and travelling around South Africa on the web. If you want to look at home go to and put in your own name and password(these are in your homework books).

Week 4

This week Room 17 will be interviewing Isaak's Grandma Annette, who has been in Queenstown for 40 years. We have written our own questions and will record these and her answers to send to the Arrowtown museum. This is part of the Arrowtown Museum's "Speaking of Change Exhibition" which will be showing in July. If you or your family have anything that would be of interest to do with this topic, we would love to hear or see items that may help us learn more about life in the Wakatipu 40-60 years ago.
News this week is sharing something from the last 100 years. It can be from anywhere in the world and on any topic.
Homework is a maths sheet, spelling words and reading each night.
Don't forget your Relating to Others tasks and our homework blog page.

Kahura Dance Group

The Kahura Dance Group performed for our school on Tuesday. They showed through music and dance the journey of the Maori people through the Pacific Islands to New Zealand. See if you can explain to your families which Pacific Island each of these costumes comes from.
