My Description of my Tukutuku mat (with descriptive words)
My Tukutuku mat is beautiful because the red and black squares that comes out with the white loom looks like a checker board.It is very colourful with the red and black. Maori make these for the walls in their wharenui.

Smart Relationship Qualities

         WALT Show Smart Relationship Qualities
   Mrs Collins brought marshmallows and spaghetti sticks to class today. She challenged us to build the tallest tower for ten minutes. We were in a group of three - Mikaela, Nikita and me.
                                           It was 19 cm.
We needed a tower that is:                            We                                                                       showed
Free standing                                               Trust.
x12 Spaghetti Sticks
x8 Marshmallows

We had to talk to one another and work out different ways of building the tower. After 10 minutes Mrs Collins measured all the towers and Sione, Sonasi and Jacob's tower was the tallest.
I learned that we have to be gentle and listen to one another to get everything to balance properly.

Jesus Respected TAPU In People Tika Pono Aroha


              We have been learning about how Jesus respected the TAPU (Sacredness) of people.
Jesus spoke to the woman at the well when he shouldn't have because she was not a Jew and she was also a woman. He showed respect and love and compassion to her. I show Aroha when I include people to my game when they have no one to play with.          When people have a fight or get bullied I stand up for them and make friends with new people.       I show Tika,Pono and Aroha when I listen to my teacher and care about the children at my              I show Tika when I confess my sins and do the right thing every day. I listen at the right time.
 I learned from Jesus that even though people are not the same skin colour or culture but you still have to be nice and kind to them, and one day you'll make friends!
