Eating some Raw Fish

We have been learning about Cook Island culture and some of their tradition food.  We read a story "My Dad's Raw Fish". This is an account of how a Cook Islands Māori family prepares a meal of raw fish. Many cultural practices are discussed throughout the text. For example they need to eat all the fish and in the past the oldest had first pickings.

We decided that we would make and eat some:

The verdict: It was delicious/yummy/average/I didn't like the coconut!!!!

Film Festival

Today the Kauri team were very lucky as we were able to go and see 12 short animated films at the Civic.  The films were from many different countries and were all extremely interesting, usually with a great message.

I enjoyed watching all the films. They ranged from songs, dramas and comedy.

My favourite was a film called Awaker from the Czech Repulic because it had a surprising, almost magical ending. After collecting bells from all the households in the village, he invented a waking system, using the bells.

Another film I enjoyed was Boulle, where two fish had to learn to live together harmoniously in a small space.

We were very grateful to be able to watch these films in the stunning setting of the Civic Theatre.

Board Games with our buddy class.

To finish off Term 2 Room 7 and Room 20 (our buddy class) enjoyed getting together and playing various board games.  There was Twister, Jenga, Checkers, the Headband game, Snakes and Ladders as well as cards and building blocks.

Everyone really enjoyed playing a mixture of games and getting to know different people. Well done!
