This week we have been writing about issues that are
important to us. This is Lucy's issue.
Did you Know? 40% of homeless
people are Employed. Shouldn’t work be
an escape from poverty?

How did you become homeless ? You can get
homeless By you havingno money and you can be
homeless from you parents Because if your parents
were homeless then you might be homeless too.

Why is Homelessness a problem? I think it is a big
problem because if you have kids how can you
buy food for your kids. And if you are homeless
you don’t have a house and you don’t have any

How can we help? we can help by giving them
some money like when you walk past a homeless
person the you can give them some money in there
hat or there money bag and you can help by giving
some food to eat.

Why is homelessness a bad thing? It is bad because if
you have kids then how can you look after you kids
they are going to be starving how can you buy food
for them.

Fraction of a set!

Today Room 4 maths were practicing finding the fraction of a set. We noticed that there never seems to be an even amount of each colour MnM in a pack of MnMs.

First we had to find out how many MnMs are in a pack. This told us what the 'whole' is; how many MnMs make up one whole. Then we found out how many MnMs were of each colour.

Kelly noticed that 4/16 is the same as 1/4 as 4 x 4 = 16.  That meant 1 quarter of the pack were orange.

Tread Lightly

Today Dominique from Tread Lightly visited our school to teach us about recycling. We have introduced new recycling bins in our school to help us be more tidy kiwis. This production reminded us why it is important to recycle and how litter affects our environment.

The production involved Hone, Bobby and David who acted as characters. David was a turtle who was affected when he ate a plastic bag (Hone) which he mistook for a octopus. This reminded us that our litter often ends up in the sea where it can potentially kill sea animals.
