It’s been a great start to the 2020 school year.
In Art, we have been learning to design characters. The students drew their own creations for our Wētā character and then shared with us why they chose certain design features. We narrowed it down to 6 or 7 different student’s designs and chose our favourite features to combine into one character.
The result: Wilbur the Wētā He should be a key character in some of the narratives we write this term. You’ll be forgiven for still finding weta’s a little creepy. Wilbur knows it…he just doesn’t care!
The Members of Wētā Class
We’ve been learning to use efficient strategies for adding and subtracting such as “friends to ten”, “doubles”, “counting up” and “subtracting in parts”.
