Creative lines from Emma Martin on Vimeo.

Today the children were given pieces of paper with a black line or shape on. They had to use their imaginations and creative skills to make it into a  picture. Take a look at their wonderful ideas!

Super heroes!

Mrs. Bennett worked with the children last week and they had to describe a Super hero. They illustrated them and they are now published on our Writing wall. This gave me an idea about what it takes to be a super hero and how we can make small differences at school. More to follow with this idea ...

Mini me's

Take a look at our finished people that we shared at Celebration. These are now on our classroom wall. The children had so much fun making them and worked independently learning new skills. We also learnt a body parts song in maori which we shared at Celebration.
