Day 3 with our Tamariki under alert level 2

We have been celebrating all that is precious about returning to school together. 

We have even spotted precious art, writing and learning that is adorning our classroom walls as a warm welcome home so everyone can feel the aroha in our school at this time. 

It has been an absolute joy to see the children smile as they walk pass the new displays of learning.

Even more precious today has been the engaging learning in our classes, fale, construction room and outdoor spaces with more children returning to school today. 

We are looking forward to welcoming the rest of our whanau back to Yendarra soon.

Nga mihi nui kia koutou katoa

Hokioi with Room 7

In Term 1, we looked at many different types of birds. We especially loved this Hokioi that is native to Aotearoa. These are the facts that we found out about the hokioi.

Hokioi used to be the biggest eagle to have ever survived living in Aotearoa. When he spread his wings, they were 3 metres long.
Can you find out how long 3 metres is in your home?

Hokioi loved to eat a huge bird native to Aotearoa. It was the Moa. He would use his razor sharp talons to dig into the moa so he couldn’t get away from the hungry hokioi.
