Cloak Of Dreams

 Today in our Te Rito Toi sessions the children explored the idea of someone having their "Cloak Of Dreams" torn. Once we had discussed what cloak and torn meant we all contributed our own dreams to a new cloak. Here is the Room 7 Cloak Of Dreams.

Freeze Frame Time.


Another exciting task in our exploration of "The Emperor and The Magic Goose" was to put ourselves into the roles of members of the town where the main story takes place in this legend. As you can see, the children enjoy exploring this story through actions. 

Level 2: Back Again, With Te Rito Toi

 On our return to school last week, our students began working through "The Emperor And The Magic Goose" as adapted by Professor Julie Dunn and Professor John O'Toole. During this unit of work our children were asked to visualise key moments in the story and draw them as a group to share with others. Here are a few examples of their work.

Gotta Move!

 This term we have been so blessed with having our P.E. sessions in the Church Hall in association with Groovit Dance Studio. Our children have really engaged with our wonderful tutors and enjoy putting their bodies to work to music.

Using Drama To Understand What We Have Read

This past week, students in Room 7 have been exploring the events detailed in "The Green Children" a myth adapted by Professor Julie Dunn, Griffith University and Professor John O’Toole, University of Melbourne.

The below video documents the children's first day at school in the village. Groups have put themselves in the shoes of various people involved to help them understand what was going on during this time.
