Distance Learning Ruma Hihi and Ruru
Well this is something that we never expected to be doing, but we are prepared for this and know that this isolation is the best way to contain Covid 19 and save many lives.
The most important thing you can do initially is take care of yourself and your family. Be mindful, take time to talk about how you are feeling and be kind to one another.
At this stage we are unsure how long it will be before we see you all again, but we are here for you and are happy to chat via email/classcraft/google classroom, if you would like to communicate with us.
Take care and enjoy this varied learning programme below. Remember there are loads of other practical things you can do which we have also included for some easy day to day tasks.
Kathryn, Caron and Tara
Write a diary/journal of your day to day activities/feelings.
Spelling notebooks - words put in last week then topic specific words based on ‘Under Water’ theme.
We have been learning how to draw sea animals on Youtube. You can carry on practising this. When you think you are confident, you can make your ‘scratch art’. - Colour in an A3 or A4 piece of paper in rainbow colours and then paint over this with black or blue paint (this is the sea) and then scratch in your sea animals that you have been practising. - Good luck, I would love to be sent a photo of your finished copy.
Your art is based on pollution of the sea. Some inspiring sites to look at are:
Google images - artworks on ocean waste
Be creative! Use what you have around the house, in your recycling bins, sheds, garage. We can have an art exhibition when we return.
Exploring the Deep - Investigate one of the following shipwrecks
The websites shown to the right are examples, however there are plenty more websites/videos you can find this information from.
