Term 4: Week 6 Hauora


Wiki tua ono!

 The tauira have been working each day on basic facts, Pāngarau, Tuhituhi and Pānui but the main focus is our hauora. In room 16 tauira we have been doing our best to stay connected to students who are not yet back at school via meets twice a day. 

We have found that some days are better than others but that is okay as well. If is really nice when new students come back to school and the one thing we can be sure about is that things are always changing! 

In our akomanga and kainga we have been doing our best do activities to look after our whare tapa wha: Here is Hikitia te hā.
