Learning about life in Japan.

Sana's mum, Megumi came with her friend, Junko to tell us about life in Japan.
She shared some Japanese children's games with us.

Using Chopsticks!


We challenged ourselves and built up our resilience by trying a new difficult task.
Sana showed us her training chopsticks and we all had a try then we tried to 
pick up small things with real chopsticks.

Then our challenge was... we were allowed to eat a marshmallow
if we could pick it up with chopsticks.  
Guess what?  We all managed to pick one up.
We didn't give up.  We showed perseverance!

Making Sushi


We washed the rice,
We cooked the rice,
We spread the rice.
And we ate the rice on seaweed with veges.

It was sticky on our fingers and tasted yum!

Maori Language Week

It is Maori language week this week. 
Our favourite new word is Aroha which means love.

We have been looking at materials and their properties.  We had fun designing a bridge for the Billy goats that was stable, and earthquake/wind/rain proof.

Rebecca and Alivia brought their bunnies in to show us.
They were soft, cute, fun, and they hopped away from us.
We had lots of cuddles and pats.
