As a part of our Matariki learning the students of Te Kahu were given the task to research, design and create their own Manu Tukutuku (Maori Kite). Everyone worked in pairs and communicated well with each other. They all problem solved and were sustainable with the resources they used. I am so proud of how their Manu Tukutuku came out. How do you think they did?

For our STEAM challenge this week we focused on Engineering. Our task was to design, build and test a parachute to save Jack as he jumped from the top of the bean stalk. In our case, Jack was an egg. Everyone worked together and used their 21st century skills such as communication, creativity, critical thinking and collaboration to construct their parachutes. We had 6 pairs who successfully saved their eggs. Check out the video below!!
Last week we celebrated Father Larry's birthday by creating a video for him. Everyone in our class contributed, we then shared it during our safe at school online assembly. Father Larry loved all of the birthday wishes he received and his cards from each of the different classes here at PCS.
