We listened to the book the The True Story of the Three Little Pigs a children's book by Jon Scieszkaand Lane Smith. Using this we had to decide the side we would take, the wolf or the pigs. We then wrote a persuasive piece of writing arguing for our chosen viewpoint. This play was adapted from the many different viewpoints we came up with as a class. Notice some of the persuasive language features used to convey the messages in our court of law!
We took part in instrument making and playing workshop with Jerome. We had the opportunity to make our own and learn the basic techniques to playing a ukuitangi and koauau. Then we wrote instructions on how to make our own Māori instrument.
