A morning of learning with Taj



Share the morning with Taj and see what learning he achieved at home.                 

Taj made an ANZAC wreath. "It was a lot of fun".

Taj practises writing 'look at' for roll call.













Taj made some potions at home  - "I put some ink and some ice in it and then I put some glitter and then I mixed it"





"It looks like lava that the sun burned on it, shining!"

"My cat watched me do the potions.  She jumped up on the table and watched me mix ink".


Taj watched Bhavana read 'Capsicum, Capsi Go' by Toby Morris and then practised writing the letter 'C'.  He used his CAT as the object he found at home that begins with the sound 'c'.

He enjoyed the video of making a forest scene at home with leaves, bark and other treasures from your garden. His picture has a 'fern tail bird' designed by Taj himself.  



Thanks so much for sending us the photos of your learning Taj - we really enjoyed seeing what you have been up to at home.

The learners in Koru made the most of all their learning opportunities during week 3 of Term 2. They practised phonics, designed and built huts, and constructed amazing creations from Lego, amongst other things.  Many of them helped with cooking and also EATING!

Rothko's letter
Rothko has listed 3 things he has been doing in the lockdown. Thank you for your letter Rothko.

Leaf art from Lucia
Look at the amazing colours and the variety of leaves Lucia used for her leaf art. Autumn is a great season to find colourful leaves to make leaf art.

Whilst out on his walk today, Tom did some nature collecting. Look at how he turned his nature treasures into a forest.
