Wolf Descriptions

We have been learning to write descriptions. We listened to the sound of wolves howling and looked at images. Then we had to describe what the wolf looked like and how it might act. We published our descriptions on Book Creator - click on the link below to go to book creator to read it.

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.
