Five year olds.
As part of our focus on cultural art, the five year olds explored the origins and use of the ponga's koru in Maori art. The children made koru shapes on large practice pages before making one on black paper and cutting it out. They made repeating koru patterns after seeing Maori kowhaiwhai panels. They made black marker pen korus on red card, which they coloured with white wax crayon. In groups, the children filled a page with all the korus they had worked with during the day.
