We can hardly believe we are into Term 4 already! Where has the time gone?
We have begun our new topic of inquiry "Nurturing Nature" and as part of this we are exploring the harbours of Porirua and our part in keeping them clean and healthy.
We talked a lot about the nature around us which led us to talking about harakeke and how it was and still is used by many people in New Zealand. We discussed its importance to the maori people and decided we would like to use it to create something special.
We used strips material to learn how to plait and over the next couple of weeks we will begin using harakeke to create some special pieces.
If you, or anyone in your whanau, can help us with harvesting of harakeke and work with us during the process we would love your help - please just let Ms. Bonsey know.
