Food Gathering

What did the Maori use to carry food away from the river and ponds? This was a long time before supermarkets and plastic bags. They used the harakeke that grew by the river to make kete. We were lucky to be able to learn how to make our own kete. Does this mean we'll never have to go to the supermarket again?

Thank you to Pam or showing us how to weave harakeke.

Geometry Fun

We have been very busy learning all about geometry for the past three weeks in team Pohutukawa. Here is a picture of some of our brilliant children designing their own 3D shapes using nothing but sticks, blutack and determination!
