Poetry Work

Kauri 3 wrote poems in response to poetry written by a very young NZ poet- Laura Ranger (she has an anthology of her poetry written at ages 6-9). We wrote using the same structure as her poem "The Sea" Have a look and a listen to our versions. Leave us some comments please.

Music lesson

We worked with Miss Christensen and in a short time were able to identify notes and read music, play the notes on tuned instruments and perform short pieces in a group. Thank you Miss Christensen. Enjoy!
