CHRISTMAS 2013 ROOM 5 HIKURANGI SCHOOL NORTHLAND NEW ZEALAND
This Saturday is the Hikurangi Christmas parade. Since the year dot Hikurangi School has had a Christmas float in the parade. This year will be no exception. The theme this year is 'Winter Wonderland', not exactly meteorologically correct for Aoteraroa New Zealand at this time of year but we have done the jandals / beach / pohutakawa theme before. So lets just say this year is a nod towards our Pakeha cultural hertitage from the northern hemisphere. The colours for the 'Winter Wonderland' theme are red, black, white and silver. I am sure on the day the float will look as awesome as it has done in years gone bye. These black trees (above) is Room 5s contribution to the parade.
I thought it would be great to have a big Christmas tree in the classroom but then I felt it would be nice for each child to have their own traditional Christmas tree to decorate and take home at the end of term. These are the childrens efforts. They brighten up the our room well and I hope they will brighten up their homes for Christmas in a couple of weeks time.
