Book Week

We have had a very fun week at Marshland School, we have been celebrating Book Week!

This week has been full of lots of exciting things. There has been a door display competition between the hubs, a dress up day on Thursday where we came dressed as our favourite book character and had a parade through the school. All of our learning has been based around fairytales as that was our hubs theme. 

Hope you enjoy these cool photos from our great week!

Epro8 Excitement!

This week we have begun our builds for the Epro8 challenge. Two teams have completed their build and we have one team to complete theirs next week. This year's challenge was to build a mechanical animal measuring 1-2 metres. It had to have a moving part that could be moved using a crank handle.
One team built a crab with a moving arm and the other team built Eric the eagle. Well done! We can't wait to see what our last team creates next week. What animal would you build if you were entering Epro8?

Cycle Safety

Kia ora,

We are so happy to be back at school and to be back into the swing of things!

This week the Korimako year 6's have had the chance to take part in Cycle Safety lead by the Christchurch City Council. This is a two day programme that teaches students the road rules for when they are out cycling as well as basic cycle maintenance.

A highlight for the students has definitely been the opportunity to ride around the Prestons neighbourhood. It has been the perfect practice ground as they have been able to learn how to ride through roundabouts, make right turns and learn how to use the traffic lights.

Korimako Art

This term we have been completing an art rotation every Friday. Students have had the choice of 3 options:
- Tangled Letters - Learning about doodling and learning how to shade with pen
- Colourful Koru - Researching different koru designs and using pastel colouring techniques
- Funky Portraits - Using Romero Britto as inspiration and using bright colours to make our portraits pop!

Students have enjoyed this rotation as they have had choice over which art piece they would like to complete.

Here are some of our fantastic pieces!

Korimako Day Trips

Last week in Korimako we had two amazing class trips to The Groynes & Spencer Park. Our activities ranged from Sports Games, to Bivouac to Beach Sprints & Sand Castles. This linked in perfectly with our Term's Inquiry of Relationships. We hope everyone enjoyed their time outside the classroom, took new risks and made new friends.

Here are just some of the amazing pictures taken during our two days!
