Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

This week has been Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori. We have been looking at many aspects of the Māori language and te Ao Māori. We have worked in groups to have a korero in te reo. We also all made a waka huia from a template and selected Māori designs to use. We had to understand the meaning of these designs and explain why we used them. Here are some of the waka huia that we made.

Maths Evening

Here is the display from our class featuring some of the learning from the Financial Literacy Programme (FLiP) from Price Waterhouse Cooper. 
All the class made up a word problem for whanau to solve. There was much fun with families trying to solve these. Calculators were brought out to check answers and to resolve family disagreements!! Great effort Room 10 to challenge each other and your whanau.

Financial Literacy

FLiP - Financial Literacy Programme

Today we learnt more about borrowing and leading. We did some different scenarios and had to come up with how they might turn out. Were they responsible borrowers? Trustworthy = responsible borrowers. 
Who would you lend your special thing to?  Is that the same for banks?
