I think Rūma Tahi may have a couple of life long Hundertwasser enthusiasts!
We had lots of fun looking at wiggly lines, funny houses, bright colours and mistakes aren't mistakes! It's all part of the art. 

Hundertwasser was an Austrian born artist that spent some of his time living up north in NZ! He was the mastermind behind the famous Kawakawa toilets.

My goal is to keep my head straight doing sprints at athletics. My second goal is to not hit any hurdles down.  My last goal is to have fun! Josh
I hope I get in the top three for both of the sprints and for rob the nest I want my team to get the most bean bags! Kiarn
My goal is to give it a go. Also, don’t switch lanes in the sprinting because I always switch lanes when I am going fast. Benjamin
My goal is to win the sprints so I can get in the finals. In the finals I will just do my best. In the high jump I think I will win because I have been practising at home. Louie
My goal is to beat Neitana and get in the finals in the sprints. My other goal is to get at least six balls in rob the nest. Logan

Once upon a time there were two boys called Makaea and Lachlan. 
It was a sunny day when Te Puna School at Room One there was a boom! Anahera, Makaea and Lachlan were gone.....
Lachlan, Makaea and Anahera were at Hogwarts! They saw... Professor Snape, he said "Go back to Gryffindor now please!" so they ran. They saw HarryPotter!!

Playing with poems

Along the lines of The House That Jack Built, we read The Nut that Atu Planted


The tipa reading ropu came up with our own version
This is the pipi
that sat in the sand.
This is the ika
that ate the pipi
that sat in the sand.

This is the seal
that scared the the ika
that ate the pipi
that sat in the sand.

This is the rubbish
that annoyed the seal
that scared the the ika
that ate the pipi
that sat in the sand.

This is the silly killy
that dropped the rubbish
that annoyed the seal
that scared the the ika
that ate the pipi
that sat in the sand.

This is the life guard
that growled the silly killy
that dropped the rubbish
that annoyed the seal
that scared the the ika
that ate the pipi
that sat in the sand.



And Makaea made this one!

This is the worm that was wriggling around.
