Learning about the friendly island of Tonga

Malo lelei , we have just completed an awesome inquiry topic - Tonga! It has been very interesting investigating the unique Tongan culture. These are some of the traditional foods from the Kingdom of Tonga. A lot of us have tried it for the first time today and wow did we love it!

We had some visitors that have also studied this inquiry topic.

Kain looks like he's enjoying that lu sipi and talo.

It was definitely a new and different meal from what some of us normally have. I hope everyone enjoyed it!

Malia, Joanlisi and Mary-Ruth brought some beautiful colourful outfits to celebrate the occassion.

Farewell Dominic

Displaying IMG_8040.JPG

On Wednesday the 31st of May 2017 Dominic left our class and our school. It was very sad to see him leave. We loved him so much. He was the coolest friend ever, if someone was sad he would help to cheer them up. He was the brightest person I have ever met. He was cool, amazing, funny and he absolutely loved the Lord.

We will miss you soo much Dominic!
I wish you luck at your new school and have fun.
Enjoy your life the way you want and take care! We will miss you.. a lot!

Edit and check!

We have been learning to become a strong writers and to edit and check our writing thoroughly. A lot of the time we miss mistakes and don't realize it. So here we have completed and checked the writing of a peer. This is helping us understand how we can help others improve their writing and also help us spot the mistakes we see in others writing and miss in our writing.
