Every two weeks Tuakana Toru complete a STEAM challenge. We were challenged to design and build a brushbot to paint a picture using fractions of colour. It really was challenging.

Room 10 were privileged to be asked to create artwork inspired by Sarah Johnson's book the Bold Ship Phenomenal to display in the Books for Kids store in Hamilton East. We would like to say a huge thank you to the lovely ladies at Books for Kids who were generous and gave us a free book if we visited the store. Happy Birthday Books For Kids.
Room 10 performed as the Young Farmer's Club in our school production of Wooden Arms by Sarah Johnson. We practised and practised and practised! It wasn't easy dancing swan lake in gumboots :)

You will have noticed we have been reading Haka as our shared book. We talked about why the haka is so important to New Zealanders and how it is an important part of our culture. We also realised the haka, and there a many, have been handed down from generation to generation. The purpose may have changed for some over time, but its importance remains.
