Finding Treasure

Today some pirates visited Ti Kouka and left treasure lying all around our studio. We went on a treasure hunt to find all the treasure. We counted the treasure and placed it on a graph to see how much we had found.

We had to work together in a group. That meant we had to take turns, share the gluesticks and listen to what our friends had to say.

Sorting it

This week during maths we have been deciding how we can sort different things.
We sorted by shape.
We sorted by colour.
 We also learnt how to use a Venn diagram to sort information. 

T14 used a venn diagram with their buddy to find out what they both liked.

Tī Kōuka's Studio Treaty

Last week we read the Tree Hut Treaty. In the story, the children decided it would be a good idea to come up with some rules for their tree house that they all agreed on. They called the rules a treaty. We talked about how New Zealand also has a treaty- The Treaty of Waitangi. We decided it would be a good idea to have a treaty for Tī Kōuka so we can all be happy and safe in the studio.

The rules we decided we wanted on our treaty are:
Use an inside voice
Tidy up before I go
Keep our hands and feet to ourselves
Use walking feet inside
Listen to who is talking
Try our best

Instead of signing the treaty we coloured in our hands to help make our Tī Kōuka tree.

We are Huritini...

Our Learning Centre is called Huritini (Who – rree – tee – knee)
Huritini is the original name of parts of the Halswell River. It means "many turns".

We made a mural to welcome you to Huritini. 
We had fun using our hands to paint the river.
