Stained Glass Effect Art

Stained Glass Effect Art

In Room 4 we have been doing some cool effective art that really stands out.All of us kids really enjoyed doing such a bright and colourful activity. 

Steps on making our stained glass art.

  1.  We choose a subject then drew a outline of it.
  2. We covered the outline with colour flow to make it appear like a stained glass border.
  3. We painted the inside each area with dye so that the art had bright colours. 

















P.S We even discovered a secret recipe on making Colour Flow.
Hope you like them.

Honesty, Perseverance and Respect.

All of us in Room 4 love getting merit awards for at assembly. When we follow the school values by showing special qualities we are rewarded. Our goal is to one day get enough a teacher and principal certificates to get a MERIT AWARD. 


Mrs Zieltjes is funny at assembly and also generous with award prizes when we are chosen for 'Let's Go'.  But we do have to deserve to be in her draw by walking, scootering, cycling, biking or catching a bus to school. Too many cars dropping off children makes our school street to busy and dangerous, also we need to be fit because we are sporty, energetic kids.

AMERICANA comes to Oakura

We love the day when all of the old USA cars pass by the school corner. Some are unusual, some are colourful, all of them are shiny but they all make lots of noise from their V8 motors and old horn sounds. Here are some of our choices and thanks Regan for taking photos on the iPad.

A Community Service with Outdoor Education since 1972

For 45 years Oakura School has kept a tradition of a village and beach clean-up morning, which leads on to a picnic, social gathering, river swim and games time.


We are lucky to have extended family/whanau support to help supervise the walk, swim, sausage sizzle, games and chats. 

Thanks to all the people who helped us to help others and enjoy ourselves. R4 blog team.

Buddy Research For Our Class Gardens.




We have been researching about types of plants that will be suitable for our gardens at this time of the year. The inquiry research is being put together on Google Slides. Our class is finding out about using the internet to make sure our garden has the best conditions to grow and plants for our present climate. Autumn is not far away so we want them to harvest the produce to feed our classes with salads or soup later this term. R4 blog team.
