Class 6 - Whakapapa Boards
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!
