Buddy Class Conversations

We are learning about how to have a good conversation.
We've been practising asking good questions, looking at the speaker, saying 'uh-huh', nodding and asking little questions along the way to keep the conversation going.

We met with our buddy class today and practised our conversation skills.
It was a good challenge and afterwards we talked about what went well and what we could do differently next time.

Here we are in action:

Calendar Art

This year, our calendar art is inspired by our Term 3 inquiry into Icons of New Zealand.
We dyed our background using two colours.
The students then chose three icons.
The first icon was made using dye and line drawing.
The second icon was made by scraping designs in wet paint.
The third icon was made using 'scratch art': painting over crayon then scratching it.
We then took a photograph in a fun pose.

We hope you like them!
