Our new class name - He Puna Whawha

Class Logo
LI: Can we create a class logo for our new name that shows a Puna - spring, the new name and what Whawha means (being hands on learners and becoming more independent)

First we looked at why we thought we had a new class name. Then we used the Maori dictionary to look up what the words puna and whawha meant. Miss Nation then challenged us to come up with a logo for our class. We looked at our school logo and decided what we needed to use for our logos. Then we drew our idea on a piece of paper. When we had done that we used google drawing to create our finished product.
