Today Rohan brought his 2 new bunnies to school. The children loved having these special visitors in our studio. We had to make sure that we kept noise levels down and we used very gentle hands when they came close to us. Thanks for bringing them along Rohan!
During reading time we love to read with our reading teacher. But there is also a whole lot of ACTIVE play going on! We love to play with the lego, build our own bey blades, colour in, dress up, play teachers and offices (with old computers), build huts, play in the sand pit, make puppet shows, play with the barbies, paint and use the dyes, build marble runs, make stuff with play dough, build with the 'Blue stuff' and so much more!

The Whio and Tī Kōuka children made a big mural to show we are all part of Huritini.
Whio studio and Ti Kouka studio all used our handprints to paint the blue river and then drew a picture of ourselves to stand by the river.
We are very proud of our 'We are Huritini' mural - please come and take a look next time you visit.

This week we read 'The Tree Hut Treaty'. In the story a group of children build a tree hut and decide they need a list of rules for how they will use the tree hut. They called it a treaty. We linked this to Aotearoa's Treaty of Waitangi and decided that we could have our own Whio Treaty to make sure we have a positive, safe and happy learning environment.
Each child made their own named Whio duck to show they agreed to the treaty and added this to our studio wall.
