Beeswax lunch wraps


During term 3, Room 11 and their buddy class; Team 8 discussed how we could 
make a difference and help our environment. 

After much discussion, we decided that we could help by stopping using plastic 
wrap in our lunchboxes and use an alternative like a Beeswax lunch wrap.

We had to research how to make them and find out what we needed.
Mrs Nelson ordered the beeswax pellets all the way from Geraldine and Mrs Turner sourced the material and pinking shears.

Next we had to work out what size the lunch wrap needed to be and measure them 
out on the material - this was trickier than we thought!

After using the pinking shears to cut out the lunch wraps we got busy making them with our buddies - this was the fun part!

Watch our slideshow to see how we made them.

SVA Community Guardians


This term, Team 5 are volunteering their services by taking part in a community project. We are in the 'Get Thinking' stage of the inquiry process, where we need to FIND the perfect project we can go forth and make a change in a community with.

We are interested in hearing from our families and friends and the wider community to find out what they think would be a good project for us to do for our community.



Please feel free to comment with any ideas you or your family come up with below. Let's make a change together!

Fractions & Pizzas


As part of Maths week, Room 11 have been looking at fractions so what better way to put our learning to use than to measure, mix, make and share our pizzas among our group.

There were some very yummy and interesting creations, but all were devoured and enjoyed by the budding chefs. Well, mostly!

Take a look at our delicious creations below.

Making music with Ti Rakau sticks


Room 11 spent the afternoon learning to follow the song 
and patterns using ti rakau sticks.

First we made the ti rakau sticks by rolling newspaper or magazines tightly 
and sellotaping them together.

Next we had to break the song down into patterns and learn each pattern separately before them altogether to perform the song. Some patterns were harder 
than others, but we got there!

Watch our awesome performance below.
