Hi from Renwick School in Marlborough

We are some of the cool kids from Renwick School.  We are enjoying reading the blog and finding out all about children from all around New Zealand.  We also love reading and loved listening to "The Kuia and the Spider".  We have done some talking about who we thought was the best weaver and we have had a go at making some turtles using our weaving skills.  We can't wait to find out more about the book, weaving and everybody else who is taking part in the Read Aloud.


  1. Hey Renwick School! Look at all your beautiful faces and your wonderful turtles! I think you are all very clever and I am so happy to hear you are enjoying the read aloud! Thank you so much for taking part and I look forward to seeing what else you discover and learn about. See you again soon cool kids from Renwick School :)

  2. I love your turtles guys! This is another idea for us at Kaipara Flats School. We have done some paper weaving and now we are keen to have a go at some flax weaving. Was it hard to weave your turtles? Did you need a little help?

  3. It wasn't too hard to make our turtles but we did have two Mum's who came in and gave us a hand. Once we got the hang of it, it was easy and fun.

    1. Thank you for the link. We would like to try this.

  4. Awesome weaving Renwick School! We think you are clever at weaving and love your colourful turtles. We think we would like to have a go at this during Wā Tahi (our Together Time).
