Nicky visits us from the ASB bank

Nicky visited us today.

Nicky came to St Patrick's school today and she also came to Room 6. She came to teach us about money. She came from the ASB bank. We need money to live and buy things we need like food. She taught us to practice to save up your money to live and she asked us "what is your dream?" I told her I want to become a body builder. She said that  dream can come true.

making tukutuku mats

Over the past few weeks my classmates and I have been making tukutuku mats. First I got my plain white paper which had lines on it. I had to cut carefully along right up to the top.

Then I got some black and red strips of paper and I put them under, over, under, over across the white loom. First I did a red one and then a black one. It made a good pattern. I had to stick the ends down so then the strips wouldn't fall out.

In the end I cut the pieces that were outside the loom. Maori people have Tukutuku patterns on the walls in their meeting houses. They're pretty cool. Mrs Agnew took a photo and here it is:

My Digital foot print. by Alex

My digital footprint is 50% which Mrs Collins says is good. We started this learning last term and we  coloured around our foot. Then in Term 2 I started to think about my digital foot print and if it's good or not so good. A good footprint means I use the internet to help me learn and not play games all the time.

Tika, Pono, Aroha

We have been learning about how Jesus respected the Tapu                                            [sacredness[ of people.

               Jesus was talking to the Samaritan woman at the well but he was a Jew and wasn't allowed to. He also helped the man with leprosy but they were also hated by people because they could get sick from them. Jesus shows us tika (doing the right thing) pono (being fair) and aroha (love).
I show aroha when by helping other people when I see them        alone. I will say "come and play with me."
I show tika by justice -  telling the truth and not lying by when I break something. This is also pono because I was choosing to own up and say sorry. I look after my friends when they are sad or feeling left out of a game.
