Kia ora and Fakalofa lahi atu
This week we have been still working hard in our reading and writing and maths.
In reading we have been learning about the jigsaw effect.
The effect is having all the groups work on pieces of a topic and come together as a group and put the information together. They were able to work independently and then work collaboratively.
In Writing we have been working hard on our speeches. Learning to present their speeches using good posture, eye contact, and engaging the audience.
Next week he class will be presenting their speeches to their teachers and the two high scored children will be in with the finals and present in front of our judges Miss Turu and Pae (Principal of Rongomai School)
So watch this space next week.
And our biggest challenge this week was practising our Dance for our production. Not only to dance but to be quiet while waiting and walking on and off the stage with the given time.
We can't wait til we perform in front of our families.
And lastly we had a production team come in to visit us.
The Production Play house.
‘Red Riding Robyn Hood’
BLURB about the Show:
King George has lost the plot! In his never-ending quest to build bigger palaces, giant walls and enormous statues of himself he has raised the Land Far Far Away tax rate to 101%! Jack and Jill can’t afford to get a pail of water, Little-Bo-Peep has to sell her sheep, and even the Princess is so hungry she ate the pea.
When even the bravest of Knights are too scared to stand up to him, the Land Far Far Away cries out for a hero to put a stop to the madness of the King.
Luckily their cries are heard by a mysterious red hooded figure with a bow and arrow, a basket of goodies and some very unlikely ‘Big Bad’ backup.
As well as a performance that will have you laughing all the way through, the play will challenge your students to think about traditional gender roles, bravery and standing up for what's right.
