Maths Holiday Challenge

In case you are looking for homework this holiday, check out this homework task created by Megan Clune who teaches Maths/Science at the University of Auckland.

You have five thousand dollars to go on a trip around New Zealand. You can either plot your trip on Google Maps - My Maps, or make a slide show/ poster showing where you would go and what you would do. Will you spend all your money on the most expensive hotels or do some wild tourist activities like sky diving?


Room 4 Role Models

 This term we have set up our class treaty and have taken the opportunity to get to know each other better. However, Mrs Stone recently shared that there was a member of the class that we hadn't met yet, because she is hapū. 

As an end of term celebration, we decided to have a cake to reveal the gender of Mrs Stone's baby. We first did a survey and we were quite split about what it would be, so anticipation was high to find out who was right! 

Another reason for the celebration is that Room 4 are the baby's first role models - the baby can already hear them and learn from in the womb! Mrs Stone is very grateful to have such a beautiful class who are already teaching the Pt England way to the next generation.

Lest We Forget

Today Room 4 discussed the significance of Anzac Day. We first revised who the ANZACs were and learnt a little about their time in Gallipoli. Next we considered why it is so important to remember those who fought for us in WW1. To support this remembrance, we created artwork with images of ANZAC soldiers and poppies.


We used tea to dye the back of the artwork, made a collage poppy and then stuck the various parts together and used paint to add highlights and create one final piece.
