Room 2 Angels

Room 2 were inspired by the "With One Loaf" project and this raised the word poverty. We had a class discussion about poverty and what it means and who it affects.

The class decided we could sell our art and give the money to the people who may struggle over Christmas because of going through a hard time. Our class talked about what it would feel like to be a kid on Christmas morning and not have anything new or flash to open.

We looked at charities and decided to give to the City Mission and become City Mission Angels. 

We made Christmas decorations and then made invitation and invited our families to a pre- Fia Fia Day sale. 

We had a friends and family sale and lots of family visited our classroom and generously bought our decorations. 

We made $363.50 for the City Mission. 

How did we feel about helping people?

Jed - It makes me feel like I want to help the whole world." 

I think that sums it up. Room 2 angels - you are amazing!

Greenstone Tiki

Today we has a specialist art lesson with Lucille's mum, Dianne. She is a high school art teacher. 

Dianne talked to us about the art we were going to do and the meaning behind it.

What we Learned:

We learned that greenstone can only be found in the South Island. 
It is also called pounamu. 

Sometimes the Maori put paua in the carving for the eyes.

We painted our tikis using dark colours first and then chose lighter colours like green and greenish yellow to make the tiki look like it's been carved. Dianne then let us choose paua design eyes and she hot glued them onto the tikis for us because hot glue is very hot.

Then Andrea's daughter tied the green strings on and Theo, Andrea's son took our photos. 

Our tikis might be Christmas tree ornaments or we might hang them on our walls. 

Thanks Dianne for a great morning.

Rotoiti

On Friday we went to Rotoiti with Jamie and Rio. On the way there we got Subway in 
Matamata. Matamata is one hour from Rotoiti. On the way there we broke down because our car didn't like our boat. We had to get a tow truck to tow the car back to Matamata. Mum went with the tow truck and we got a rental car - it was a boy racer. Luckily our friends were behind us so we could get a ride. Jamie and One(pronounced O-nay) had to hitchhike to Matamata. 

The first day we tried wake-boarding, none of the kids could get up. The next day I tried water skiing and I got up the first time. Dad was in the water with me and we left him behind because I was zooming away from him. 

On the same day at the hot pools I was walking down the stairs and I slipped on a boogie board and scraped my hand and elbow down some concrete. It hurt a lot. 

The last day it was scorching hot and we went for a few hours of wake boarding, water skiing and biscuiting. We did lots of big jumps on the biscuit.

On the drive home. most of us went in Emma's car and me, Jamie, One and dad went in One's car and mum went with Mila in the boy racer and then picked up our Ford Escape -that's our car.

Luckily our car didn't break down again and we went home nicely.
