We have been learning about how to create kowhaiwhai patterns. Everyone had to make a stencil which they then used to decorate the handle of their paddle.
Inside the paddle we did more kowhaiwhai patterns and also wrote words which say how we are going to contribute to Room 19 being an awesome place to be.
The paddles may end up decorating the class waka we are building but for the moment, they are residing on the back wall of the classroom. Please come and visit Room 19 for a closer look!
