Juice making, Popcorn and where does fruit come from?



We are cutting up the fruit to make juice, we also learnt about sweet and sour. 

We had to squeeze the lemons really hard with our squeezer.  The juice came out.

Our Outdoor Art Exhibition 2017

Wow, what a day, between rain and wind all week, the sun managed to break out for a few hours on Thursday 28th September.  We showcased some beautiful installations of colour, craft and skill.  Every student in the school contributed in some way to our art exhibition.  Below are some examples of what students created.
Thank you Hamilton East students for all your hard work and enthusaism toward the arts in our school.  



Books made from blocks of wood which went into the letter 'T' in Tu Tangata! Tu Maia!

Intricate weavings

Games for the playground





Every class in the school was responsible for a letter.  The letter formed the words of our school moto, Tu Tangata! Tu Maia! Stand Tall, Reach High!  Students from each class presented their letter in a random order to make the moto.   


Hanging kites, the best day ever hanging and installing artworks!


Our Rainbow Playground!

The snuggly tree!




Room 6 and fairyland

Making Fairyland

We were very excited to make Fairyland in our playground, first we had to make fairyish sorts of things, toadstool houses and blooming flowers needed to be planted.  Katerina, one of our teachers even made special little houses around the school for hobbits and fairies.
