Last week being book week, we had to dress up as one of our favourite book characters, here is a short presentation of what we dressed up as.

In writing we have been learning how to write the perfect paragraph to go along with our explanations and some us have made a stop motion to display our new learning, here is a few examples of work.


This term we have been looking at how rubbish is disposed from a lollipop wrapper to Kate Valley Landfill in Canterbury.

Learnz has taken us on a journey from your rubbish bin to the dumps around the South Island. Here is a short presentation of our new learning.

 Certain kinds of rubbish takes a long time to break down. Here is what Harrison and Alvin found out

For the Art Soiree Totara has made Tie-Dye T Shirts we will be screen printing them but so far here is the product.

In art for the last couple of weeks we have been focusing on what makes a good Logo as well as Protest art

Zoe’s learning on protest art.

This week we began to learn how to ride unicycles. Here is a short video on our progress.


  1. Kia ora Totara 3 It's Heidi from Mamaku hub.
    I really liked this post because it shows that you should not litter and if you do it could take a lot of years to break down.
    This reminds me of when i did something like this in class.
    How did you find out how many weeks mouths and years it takes for the rubbish to break down?
    haere rā (bye) Heidi

  2. Kia Ora Totara 3 It's Ruby from Mamaku 2.
    I really liked your slideshow about how long it can take for plastic to break down. I also liked how you did a slide for Reuse a slide for Recycle and Reduce and what you wonder.
    Did you find out what you wondered at your Virtual field trip at Kate valley?

  3. Hi there my name is Izzy and I am a year 5 student at Waikowhai Primary. I really like the 'this slideshow is rubbish'. It looks really cool. It made me think about when a man came in and talked about rubbish to me and my group. next time you could maybe make it so people can read the words better. here is my blog:

  4. Hi there my name is Joyce from Waikowhai Primary School.
    I love your "this slideshow is rubbish" it taught a lot about rubbish. I am part of the student panel in our school and last week we learnt about rubbish too. Maybe next time change your text colour to a darker colour for the slide with the cigarette background. Make sure you come check out my blog.

    Blog ya later,

  5. Hi there, my name is Amie and I am a student in room 8 at Waikowhai Primary School. I really like how you added two slideshows. It made me think of when I had to go to molly green to pick up rubbish. Have you thought about Making the colours of the words not the same so people can read it properly ?

    If you would like to see my learning,my blog is http://wpsamiem. Thanks for sharing this with me Room 14! Blog you later!

  6. I really liked this post because the slides talked about how long the break down of the rubbish takes. Like how aluminium cans take 200-500 years to breakdown. This is a really interesting post. If you want to visit my blog just type in
