Hope this movie will convince you to eat healthy by including lots of fruit and veges to your daily diet and less sugar.

Matariki Celebrations with our Teina

On Friday, Room 10 and Room 1 got together for a Tuakana/Teina day.  We worked together on arts, crafts and kai, as well as singing songs of Matariki.

Matariki is a time for sharing, learning and getting together and we enjoyed celebrating Matariki with the youngest students in our school.

Here are some photos from the day, including a video of our Matariki Macarena on the last slide.

Kūmara for Matariki!

Today Room 10 made kūmara wedges as part of our learning about healthy eating and as part of our Matariki celebrations!



The kūmara chips were oven baked and the skin was left on for extra fibre.  That's what makes them a better choice than hot chips from the takeaways which are fried in a lot of oil and have less nutritional benefits.

We paired them up with a sour cream and sweet chilli dipping sauce and they were DELICIOUS.

Hari Matariki koutou!

Our Sugar Songs!

Today Room 10 had to perform their songs/raps that we had written in response to our learning from watching That Sugar Film.

We were entertained all afternoon and we were amazed at the creative lyrics that different groups came up with.

If you would like to watch the videos - you can!  They have all been embedded in the Google slides below.  Enjoy!

Making Hanawiti - Making Sandwiches

Room 10 have been learning about making balanced choices with food for a healthy life.  Today we made hanawiti (sandwiches) to show how easy, balanced and filling healthier choices can be.

We made sandwiches with ham or luncheon, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, carrots and wholemeal bread.  Our oils and fats group was mayonaise and butter.

Some of us grated carrots for the first time today!  Some others tried to sneak in a sandwich with just the tiniest bit of lettuce, so we were challenged with our taste buds as well as our thinking about nutrition!

Check out some of our creations below...he namunamuā ā mātou hanawiti!
