Rainbow Spot What?

We have been reading Nanny Mihi and the Rainbow by Melanie Drewery for our shared book lessons.

We made our own rainbow by collecting all the whero, karaka, kōwhai, kākāriki, kikorangi, and tawa things in our classroom and just look at our amazing rainbow!

Can you spot …

  • a karaka pooh bear puppet
  • 3 kākāriki reptiles
  • a whero ball
  • a kikorangi ‘E’
  • a kōwhai corn cob
  • a tawa aubergine

What else can you challenge us to spot? Leave us a comment.



Mindfulness week 7

We are very lucky at Rāwhiti to have our own mindfulness teacher who comes to our studio almost every fortnight. Erica is from – Mindfulness in Schools Ōtautahi. Erica visited us last week and introduced us to ‘belly boat breathing’. We used paper boats and put them on our bellies to watch them rise and fall with our breath. Here are some photos from our session last week. 

Rāwhiti School Book Day…

On Wednesday 14th December we had a Book Day at Rāwhiti School.  A group of students helped to organise this event.  Thanks to Charlotte J, Olivia C, Freya, Morgan and Violet for all of their hard work behind the scenes.

We had activity grids to complete, face painting, a staff read around and Kahoot quizzes.
