In Room 3 at Waituna West this week we have been making a Puriri Tree. First we made the bark for the tree.
Second step was to join Room 2 at our school to make lots and lots and lots of leaves and some Puriri pink flower.
Can you see our leaves drying on the steps. Aren't they such a sparkly bright green.
Our teacher stapled the leaves and flowers to the tree. We have over 120 leaves on this tree. Our tree looks amazing - doesn't it? Can you spot the creatures from the story Pepetuna on and around our tree?
Look below to see some of the creatures from the story.
This term, we are learning about how plants and animals are connected. With a buddy, we have been watching clips about the pūriri moth and monarch butterfly and finding facts about them after reading Pepetuna.
We have used words or pictures to collect our ideas.
We have compared them to find out how they are different and the same using words or pictures.
We have also been writing about the life cycle of the pūrir moth, using some of the great words and sentences from Pepetuna.
Hi there! Today I managed to read the story to one of my students, Kestle. She shared her favourite part on this flipgrid: https://flipgrid.com/ab7b85 Feel free to share your favourite part there too! We're looking forward to finding out what you liked. Kia ora koutou, Mrs Whyte
