Grandparents Visit

Grandparents Visit
To finish our inquiry unit on toys we invited grandparents and parents to visit us and see our toys. It was a lovely afternoon with grandparents from Wellington, Hamilton, Upper Hutt and Palmerston coming to visit. The kids loved seeing everyone and showing them what they had learnt.

Our Toys

For our Inquiry we designed a new toy and made it. We made games, juggling balls, soft toys, play houses and much more. It required lots of green hat thinking.

Te Manawa Visit


Today we went to Te Manawa to learn about toys and games of the past and present for our inquiry unit. We had a great time. We started at the Art Gallery where we drew art we saw. We then looked at the rest of Te Manawa before we went to learn about toys and games. We got to play with old things and new modern toys. It was a great day. Thanks to the parents who helped us and the teachers at Te Manawa.

Cup Game

Cup Game
Today we learnt how you can make, and have fun playing with something that doesn't cost any money. We first had to make our cups and balls. We then thought of different games we could play with it.
