Ko te Wero o te Wiki - wero tuarua

For our Wero o te Wiki we made a type of waka rererangi - a paper dart. We had a wero to see whose dart could fly the best. We used straws, bluetac, paper, and paperclips. We only had 15 minutes to construct it. This week we looked at showing Resilience. We showed resilience because it was a bit hard and we didn't give up. We kept on trying. The Wolverine rōpu won! Their paper dart flew 6 metres. Well done Nehsaun, James and Stevie. :-D

Ko te Wero o te Wiki!

This term we will be having a Wero o te Wiki (challenge of the week) every Rāpare. This week we had a wine gum wero and we practiced being good Participators. Being a good Participator is important at Hornby Primary School.
We had to see who could make the highest tower using wine gums and toothpicks. We let others share their ideas, we took turns, we were nice to our team mates. We had some fun. The Chicky rōpu won - well done Carlos, and Katene!! :-D
