Making Rockets with Balloons on PhotoPeach
One of the activies at Dicovery was to make a rocket.  For this activiy we had to find a buddy to work with.  Can you see how we needed to read the instructions, comprehend (think about what we were being asked to do), work together, solve problems (reason) and persevere to make our balloon rocket work?

Sam has his hair shaved for Child Cancer

Sam is having his hair shaven to raise funds and an awareness for child cancer.

Mrs Abrahamson's nephew is a survivor of cancer and he shaved Sam's head.  He goes to Hastings Boys' High School.

Millie received the Principal's Award and was able to shake Sam's hand.

We are all very proud of you Sam.  You are living our school values of Aroha, respect, resilience and excellence.  Sam raised over $1000 for child cancer.  Thank you so much for your support.

Face Sculptures

Our Face Sculptures on PhotoPeach
Look at the wonderful face sculptures we made using junk and collage material.  We tried to find objects that had a similar shape to the features on our faces.  At times it was quite difficult gluing on the smaller bits and pieces but we persevered and didn't give up.  We think Picasso would be impressed with our works of art.

Abstract Faces

Abstract Faces on PhotoPeach
We have been learning about different styles of art through the artist Picasso.  These pieces of work are based on our faces but they look quite different to our self portraits.  We had to be very brave and not take our pencil off the page when we were drawing.  The important thing was to still think about all the features on our face, so when you look at our work you will see eyes, noses, mouths, eyebrows, cheeks, ears and hair.  The faces don't look real but they do look like faces. We used different colours to shade in each shape.  These are abstract pictures of our faces.
