This term our inquiry question is
 "How do we make a kite that will fly?"


We will be looking at design, problem solving, sharing ideas, helping each other and having lots of fun. We will also welcome Matariki (Maori New Year) into our inquiry making traditional Manu taratahi (Maori kites).

Maths

Today in maths we had the pleasure of having some year 8 student from Room 3. 
Amira and Tawana are learning multiplication with their visitor.

Leonora taught Siose how to play slide maths.

Jin learned subtraction with his visitor.

Sapphire's visitor helped her with counting backwards from 70 to solve subtraction problems.

Tawana's buddy helped her solve word problems in her activity.

Lyall's buddy helped him count backwards from 80 to solve subtraction problems.

Thank you so much we enjoyed having you all in our class and sharing our knowledge of maths.

Author Melinda Szymanik

ROOM 26 Would like to thank author Melinda Szymanik for sharing her love of books with our team. What a lovely lady.
Melinda read one of the books she wrote called 'Were-nana
which had the students so engaged and anxiously wanting to find out what was going to happen at the end.


Thank you Melinda. Room 26 had some questions to ask but we ran out of time. I thought they were very good questions.
Tawana wanted to know : What inspires you write?
Jin: do you have a favourite place where you like to write?
Ella: Do you have a favourite author
