Rapare 19 Whiringa-a-nuku

Thursday 19 October

Kauri Dance starts tomorrow. Children will need light clothes as it gets very warm after 1 hour of non-stop dancing.

Happy birthday Adam!

Diwali started here in India and so did Anshu!

How gorgeous! Aaliyah and Anshu in traditional clothing.

The top I should have worn and a garland. They would have been made of marigolds and jasmin in India but are not commercially sold here.

Marigold, jasmin diva and decorations.

Reading was understanding why Diwali is important. Taken from the NZ herald.

We visited this site for stories about Diwali.

You tube taught us how to make Diwali lanterns

When we were done we could listen and watch other stories.

We used the coloured sand to make patterns on the floor to bring good luck. We also left the door open to bring good luck in.

James loved the stories.

We made our own or coloured mandala.

We made lanterns from card and paper.

At morning tea we had a sweet called barfi. Some of us loved it, some DIDN"T!

Lanterns drying.

Drawing and chosing the colours for the Rangoli pattern. This will go outside our door tomorrow to welcome everyone to school.

Birthday boy and lantern.

Our half finished rangoli pattern.

Term 4's Kauri newsletter. Look out for it.
