Term 4 Week 2

Kia ora and welcome to our Room 10 Blog for Week 2 of Term 4.
It is great to see reading going on in so many different ways in and outside the classroom, with teachers, with reading buddies and in our reading rotation groups.

Our Rich Maths task with Sam looked at how many carriages would be needed for different numbers of passengers. We used a variety of different ways to solve this problem.

 The weather stayed dry for both our tennis lesson and our high jump training this week.
In Art we have been learning  how different fabrics are made by first of all deconstructing them and....
 ..then having a go at making our own weavings using paper.
As part of our writing focus on narratives we worked on a 3 part retelling of the big book: Bubble Trouble. First Shaelea modelled what to do,,,,,
 ....then we did our own versions of the story.....
...and finally we shared our stories with the rest of the class.

As always Discovery Time on Friday was buzzing with role play, creativity and lots of relating to others.
