Here’s a photo of the awesome Room 9 kids rocking their super cool star headbands before our performance assembly on the last day of term. We sung ‘twinkle twinkle little star’ in both Te Reo and English, plus a ‘catchy’ song about planets, to go along with our learning about the solar system this term. We’re sure everyone who attended enjoyed our Piwakawaka performance!
We hope you have a lovely, safe and happy break from School! See you in two weeks!!
Today Room 9 have started the next stage of our inquiry learning by looking at the planets in our solar system. We looked at different pictures of the solar system to see the order of the planets, then coloured in the planets and glued them into our activity books in the right order.
Take a look at our learning in action!
If you missed our showcase assembly last Friday, here are some photos of the Matariki artwork we shared! You will also be able to find our artwork on display at our upcoming Matariki Hangi.
On Wednesday, Ena showed off her amazing maths strategies to solve a hard problem with two 2 digit numbers! She showed Miss Smith how to solve 43 + 21 by breaking the numbers into tens and ones.
Take a look at her working…
We are so excited to have Mathletics up and running in Room 9 now! We’ve had lots of fun this week learning how to log into this awesome maths website and have a play around on some of the brilliant activities available. Logins will be sent home later next week once we have mastered the use of the website in class, this way we will be able to practise our maths online at home as well as at school!
As part of our inquiry into the seasons this term, Miss Smith set up a sensory inquiry exploration table. We have had heaps of fun doing the different activities in the inquiry area, such as writing words in the sand like we are at the beach, looking at autumn leaves and shells up close with magnifying glasses, and make beautiful pictures with natural objects in the sand.
Take a look at Room 9’s little inquirers!
