Happy Birthday. Hope you have an awesome day.


How Long Is Your Snake?



Measurement 

We made our own play dough in our learning Inquiry, where we saw
ch, ch, ch, ch, changes when water was added to the dry ingredients.  
The dry ingredients combined to make a solid ball of dough.
We then used our home dough for measurement in maths.
We rolled out different size snakes and then we used a ruler to measure them.




Fractions With Pizza





Chips and Pizza 

Room 26 's reward for doing such a good job with fraction and 
an end of term treat.

Writing about Stella



Stella

  After showing Room 26 photos of my dog Stella in a cast (cruciate rupture to the knee joint) the kids have been wanting me to bring her into school so they could see for themselves that she was ok. 

Stella spent the morning with the kids they took lots of photos and posted on their blogs.

Our Amazing Art



Autumn Art

This is our amazing art. We had a square each where we had to 
paint what we thought autumn was. We used autumn colours such as brown, red, orange, 
pink and purple. We borrowed a hay bale from the farmer next door to school as 
part of our display and we had real autumn leaves. Miss Tumahai bought a 
basket of pumpkins and she glued our felt leaves on to our picture frame.

New Site Page



Our new sites page.

These holidays I have been working on a number of school related projects. Our class sites page has had a revamp and in doing so I have learned a lot. How to size and resize, making sure positioning is where I want it and my icons link to the right places, image or piece work that I want the students to see and do. I have also been looking at making links to articles and clips that relate to the students reading and found some really cool links to maths activities.

Fia Fia


Fia Fia

What an amazing night. My first Fia Fia, if someone was to ask me which cultural dance I liked, I couldn't tell you, I enjoyed them all. The whole night took my breath away.
From weeks of practices and the same song going over and over in my mind, I think I lost a kg or 2 practicing the routines with the very awesome and glowing Jump Jam team. 
Thanks to my wonderful colleagues Miss Szymanik, Mrs Stickland  and to the students, 
you made us so very proud.
