Totara 2/3 Hanmer Camp 2017

Last week, Totara 2 and 3 went on camp to Hanmer. We had the most amazing time mountain biking, tree climbing, orienteering, playing Mission Impossible and we can't forget the Lolly Shop and the hot pools!

Although it was freezing, we all had a fabulous time learning outside of the classroom. A big thank you to all of the parents who took time off work to come on camp with us. You were awesome and we couldn't have gone without you!

Van Gogh Art

Because it was such a nice day yesterday Mr B and Miss Hines decided to take us up Arnott Heights to observe our town. We looked at the geographical features and talked about the Maori legend of the two tuatara drinking from the Grey River. We did some observational drawings of what we saw and from these drawings we are going to use them to inspire us to paint our own Starry Night in the style of Van Gogh. We really do live in a beautiful place!
