New Zealand's Newest Actors and Actresses

This Monday kicks off arts week at Sunnyhills School and we are loving it!

The year 5's are doing an arts rotation where they will get to experience some dance, drama and creative arts.

For drama we started with a warm up of different walks to portray different people and things (this got us really excited and loud!). Then we played some charades where we needed to act out things like washing the windows while our team tried to guess what we were doing. Finally we listened to some sentence starters and had to create a freeze frame to show what happened in the sentence and then what we thought would happen after (carry on the story).

Here are some pictures of us being amazing:

Hi Harold :)

On Tuesday and Wednesday we were so lucky to meet Harold the giraffe and Pamela from the Life Education Van.

We learnt so much from them. We learnt about how the decisions we make can have negative consequences and, much like toothpaste, when you squeeze all of the good stuff out of a relationship you cannot get it all back in again no matter how hard you try.

We also learnt the differences of a good leader and a bossy boots.

Here are some pictures from our time in the van, we hope you like them.

Rhythm Interactive was a HIT!

On Friday we were so lucky to have Johnny from Rhythm Interactive teach us how to play on the drums. He taught us seven different rhythms which we then created into an amazing piece of music. At the end he spoke to us about how important it is to create memories through doing the things you love and hard work, he inspired us that we can do anything.

We wish he would come back so we can do it all again. It was so much fun we were even bothered by the cold!

Flapping Around

In preparation for our arts week project we have been practicing our fantastic sketching.

We first tried to draw a fantail with no picture and no help and then Miss Stuhlmann talked us through each step and we had a picture to help us visualize the fantail.

We did so well!!!

Check out our awesome fantails.

Our Wonderful Time at the Buddhist Temple

On Wednesday we had the amazing opportunity to go visit the Buddhist temple near botany. We were taken on a tour through the temple and were instructed on the values of the people who live there. We also got to practice our calligraphy and the police came to talk to us about how they help our community. It was such a fantastic experience and I know we all learnt a lot!

Here are some pictures from the tour:
