Today I brought in my swing that I built on Saturday 18 of November and showed it to Room 3. I built it out of Mecano. Mecano is parts and pieces that you can make stuff with like my swing. You use nuts and bolts to hold the pieces together. I got my set when I was four and I lost the instructions so I built it from my imagination.
Have you built anything like this before, can you share it with us?

The Pounamu is a rock found in rivers in New Zealand it is mostly made into necklaces but can be made into many other things as well. The first people to use it were Maori. Greenstones are very rare and has never been found in the North Island which is why the Maori name for the South Island is Te Waipounamu.
Do you have any information about other types of rocks?

This week Room 1 were learning about the Aboriginal culture. This cultural group is apart of Australia. Their visual art is made up of 100's of dots. The people of this culture used to hide special messages and stories in their visual art. We painted our own aboriginal art.
Thanks Room 1
