Real Art Roadshow

Te Puna School have just been visited by the Real Art Roadshow.  Room 7 enjoyed their visit to see the art on Thursday afternoon.  We were wowed by the quality and variety of art pieces - they were very cleverly created. 

 Our host Lyndsay invited us to select our favourite and least favourite pieces and to think about why we had chosen those pieces.
It was a great experience which we all enjoyed.  We are now able to understand a little bit more about being art critics. 

Check out the link below to see some of the art we saw.

ROOM 7's SPEECHES


Speeches

Room 7 have been working incredibly hard over the last 3 weeks getting our speeches written.

Our semi finalists were
Year 6: Ella Crichton, Alex Rennie, Tahlia Marshall
Year 5: Achilles Burne, Izabella Ritai

Great effort by you all


Our winning finalists both came from Room 7 which was very exciting, they were...

Year 6: Ella Crichton 
and 
Year 5: Achilles Burne

Ella's Speech was very thought provoking as it was about Child Poverty while Achilles took us on a journey through the galaxy which was very informative as well as fun.

These two students both went on to represent our school at the North Cluster Speech competition held at Matahui school on Tuesday the 8th of September.
