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.

We used the Tiki and Kiwiana patterns and designs for our multi-media masterpieces.

Harold comes for a visit!


This week Harold from the Life Education can came for a visit to teach us what things impact our decision making and what a good leader looks like.

First we had to complete a group challenge and un-tangle ourselves without letting go of each others hands. It was tricky but lots of fun!




We learnt about making choices and what influences our decisions.
We had to choose to go to LA, the Gold Coast or Queenstown and make lots of decisions during the morning when we were given new information about each place. 

 


We talked about what a good leader looks like and what attributes they might have.

 




Then we got to meet Harold and tell him about the things we learn't.

Harold told us a funny joke...

Why was Harold running around the bed at night?


Because he was trying to catch some Zzzzzzz's....!
