Great to see a number the Panthers at the fete on Saturday. Good fun. Below are a few pictures from the day.
On a very hot day I was quite glad to be in charge of the water activity. Here are a few photos from the event.
With a promised performance at the mid-summer revels, we have little time to get this right! The class will be giving a titi torea performance which is a traditional Māori stick game designed to develop hand-eye co-ordination. Below is a video from a class in New Zealand. Practise at home.
This will be different! Not many children will do a study of New Zealand. It just so happens to coincide with the Lions rugby tour of the country. Funny that. We started looking at one of the myths from the Maori that explained the creation of the world and the formation of the two islands that make up New Zealand. Below is the video that we watched and made notes about.
We also practised a short song to help children pronounce Maori vowels correctly.
It is our hope to perform this song at the mid summer revels as well as a poi performance and a Maori stick game. First practise today - not too bad. If children want to practise at home they can roll up a couple of magazines, bind them together with tape.
We're a class of year 3/4 children from Kenninghall in Norfolk.
