Term 1, Weeks 1 – 3

Feb 14, 2020 | Wētā - Year 4 blog

Hi Parents,

It’s been a great start to the 2020 school year.

Class Mascot

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!

Nothing like the smell of freshly bought flash cards

Chloe dials up the “Maths intelligence” dial that she keeps on her collarbone

“Is it time for PE yet?”
