Our Te Puawai Whakangahau


Today Te Puawai had their Whakangahau. We shared our weather poems and were lucky to enjoy a performance by the Kapahaka group. Last Friday they were involved in a kapahaka competition, held in Waitara. Thank you to all of the  family and friends who were able to come and support us.

Solids, Liquids and Gases

Today Zoe and her two whanau groups tricked us all. They had been talking about the difference between solids, liquids and gases and how water can be in all three states.
They made a mixture of half a cup of cornflour and a quarter of a cup of water. They mixed this together and squeezed it into a solid ball. Something exciting happened when the kids passed the ball to a partner and they held it on their flat hands.
You could try this experiment at home and see what happens!

Welcome to Term 4

Today we had 3 Taranaki Cricket players come to school to teach us cricket skills.
It was great to be outside in the sun having fun.
We even got a prize pack to take home.
