HPPA Cultural Festival- 11 April

On 11 April, year 3-4 students took part in a Korean dance to represent Macleans Primary School at Howick and Pakuranga Primary School Cultural Festival. They used mini drums (sogo in Korean) as the dancers danced to the energetic song about a salt merchant who was a popular character in the end of 19th and the beginning of 20th century. The girls did a superb job in their performance. Well done!

Room 1- 11 April

Room 1 made three-dimensional Easter eggs on wood and they enjoyed the hands-on experience. Woodwork is a great way to develop hand-eye coordination and muscular strength.

First, they drew the shape of an egg and hammered the nails around it. After that, they put thread around their egg and decorated using pom poms. Their Easter eggs look very cute.

Play Based Learning - 11th April

On the 11th April 2019 the Bucklands Beach Kindergarten students came to visit the Year 1 classes to experience a day at school. They had so much fun engaging with the Macleans students during the Play-based Learning session. They completed their Must do activities and then moved onto their Wishing activities and thoroughly enjoyed it.




Room 2 - 11th April

Room 2 has been learning about the letter "Dd" and the sound that it makes so during the Wishing activities they made Dragonflies at the woodwork bench. Don't they look COOL!
