Last week we began our study of birds. We tried to look for birds in the playground and even tried to be very quiet. But sadly we didn't see any, so it was back into class to search some common birds on the ipads.

Eventually will be designing bird feeders and finding out what food or seeds birds like best. During our bird observations a sparrow flew into our room. It hit the window hard. Mrs Watson, our teacher, carefully took it outside but we weren't sure if it would live. 😔 

Luckily it recovered, did a poop and flew away. 🥰  Mrs Watson was really impressed that everyone after just one session of researching birds knew what type of bird it was.

If anyone has different types of birds they could bring in to show us and tell us what you feed your bird we would be very excited.

 Reading Rocks!

We are learning how to complete follow up activities for the text we read.  Today we wrote about our favourite part of the story.  Then we illustrated our page.  At the end of each session we share our work in our groups to the whole class.

 Understanding the Treaty of Waitangi

Room 3 have had discussions about how the Treaty of Waitangi was formed.  We talked about the barriers that would have happened over the English not being able to speak Māori and the Māori not being able to speak English.

In class we created our own Treaty and korowai - a Māori cloak.
