Class 6 - Whakapapa Boards

Class 6 - Whakapapa Boards from Team 1 PES on Vimeo.

Towards the end of last term and during the beginning of this term, Class 6 have been working very hard on their Whakapapa Boards.

Students had to research designs from each of their parents/caregivers culture and choose one that represents each of them.  Their third design had to depict something from 'Aotearoa'. 

Their first designs were drafted onto paper and coloured in with coloured pencils.  They then had to transfer their drawings onto particle board.  They learned a new painting techique called 'cutting in' which took a lot of patience and perseverance.

Students were very happy with their designs and most of them have decided to give them away as koha for christmas to special whānau members.  Ka pai tamariki o karaihe ono!

TKOTW - putiputi/flower

Our talented tamariki from Class 12 have been at it again. Our school focus for the term is 'Art Attack' so we brainstormed some ideas of how to create Te kupu o te wiki snippets through art. Chastyti and Julianna have produced this wonderful little 'speed art' movie for you to all enjoy. Ka pai kōrua ANO!
