Our Wall Story

Howick Historical Village

Howick Historical Village
Room 13 had a fabulous morning at Howick Historical Village. We went back in time to the 1800s. We played outside games, looked at the old toys, went to the school house and walked through some of the houses and shops.

Outside Games 

Log Walkers

We played 'Graces" a popular game with boys and girls in the 1800s
Most of the games we played were made from wood

The School House

We had to write on slate

 No writing with your left hand!

 We had to bow and curtsey when we said 'Good morning" to the teachers.

Art of Aotearoa Exhibition
Room 13 went to the school hall to have a look at the fabulous artwork, done by the children at VAS. 

Room 13 have been looking at the work of illustrator Elizabeth Fuller. She has brought to life the loveable bear in the stories by Diane Noonan. We have focused on blending and shading with coloured pencils to add texture and character to our bears.

Great Job Everyone!
