We are Learning about Hauora and to support our Well-being

We are Learning about Hauora and we can support our 


Our first inquiry topic for this year is Hauora, Hauora is a Māori philosophy of health unique to New Zealand. It comprises taha tinana, taha hinengaro, taha whanau, and taha wairua. The concept of well-being encompasses the physical, mental and emotional, social, and spiritual dimensions of health. 

Check out the posters we made to show our understanding- there is loads of ways you can love and take care of yourself. 

We were inspired by the work of Andy Goldsworthy who create amazing sculptures and art using only things he find out in nature. we went outside to find materials to use. Let us know what you think!

At Tamaki Primary School we have been learning to swim everyday for the past two weeks. It has been awesome, at 10.30 we jump on the bus and head to Swim Magic. We then separate into three groups with the swim teachers. We have learnt so many new skills and practiced how to be safe when boating. Check out the slide show to find out about Harley,  Saia, Boisi and Jairus's  experiences below!

Coronavirus... What on Earth is it?


Coronavirus.... What on Earth is it?

All of a sudden we are back into lockdown level 3 and Room 5 is embracing online learning once again. We thought it would be a great idea to research exactly what a virus  and specifically what coronavirus really is. There is some very interesting scientific language used when learning about viruses and we found this to be challenging.

Here is Cheldyn's wonderful slideshow, he has shown great understanding and has written some awesome explanations all about viruses! 


We particularly enjoyed looking into street art that has popped up all over the world, the task was to think about the messages these street artists are trying to share by creating this art.

Then we designed our own art piece on google draw or on paper at home. Check out the slideshow!

AT Art Competition 

Here are some of Room 5's entries for the Auckland Transports art competition. We are hoping to see these on the wall of the brand new train station. They blow the art onto tiles and decorate the walls.
We love New Zealand's beautiful native birds such as the kereru, kiwi, tui, hawk, ruru and kakapo, they were our inspiration for this art. You will also notice the native trees including kauri, nikau, rimu, tī Kōuka and harakeke.
