Hands-On Homework

Next week’s hands-on homework task is to visit the newly renovated Te Manawa Museum. Te Manawa is a fantastic educational centre that has only recently reopened after a major renovation.

I thought this would be a great thing to do in the school holidays. If you are really keen, Te Manawa also have a specially designed School Holiday Programme.

Anyone who visits Te Manawa and sends me a photo to my e-mail can have a dot when they return to school.

So what are you waiting for? Go ask mum or dad if they can take you!
