Kids Teach Time Travel

We are investigating 'Time' and today shared what we already know and what we want to know about time. One of the things we talked about was time travel! Here's a video of some kids explaining Stephen Hawking's theory about Time Travel!

Creating Toys

Over Term 2 Tumeke 12 learnt all about the Design Process through exploring toys. We had been finding out lots about Haiti and what it was like there for kids.
So we used that as the 'problem' for our design process and we made toys for the kids of Haiti that they could make easily from bits of rubbish and things around the house.

In this video you can see some of the things we used to make our toys with. We collected all these things from our house and saved them from the rubbish bins! After this you will then see our finished toys. They are pretty amazing!

Kia Ora Tumeke 12 and our global audience!

At the moment we are on holiday but we have a few tricks up our sleeves and there will be some new work posted shortly.

Tumeke 12 - I hope you are having a fabulous break before we head into a very exciting term 3! If you thought Term 2 was good... it's going to be even better!
