Term 2 Week 2

First of all lets take a look at our Maori focus for last week and the month of May. The whakatauki for May is:
Our word for Week 2 was  akomanga or classroom. An example of how to use this in a sentence would be: Haere ki te akomanga. Go to the classroom.

We had lots of fun thinking about green , which was our colour for Week 2 some of our friends from other classes also joined in.

We were very pleased with ourselves for completing the challenge of finding 100 green objects, including a real live praying mantis!

For our rich task in maths last week we explored making a repeating patterns by adding objects into the  carriages on our trains.

Our handwriting continued with a focus on the rather tricky formation of the letter ' b'
In Discovery Time we thought some more about the digraph 'ai' we had been learning by making our own train track. When you watch this clip you will also see how well we did at hockey and big ball skills.
