Olympics: Bringing It All Together!

Term 3 has seen a focus on the Rio Olympics as our Inquiry.

We decided to share our learning on a poster.  We have brought through the key values, key vocabulary and ideas.  We also included literacy (similes & metaphors) and maths (tessellation).

To see each of these posters clearly visit our student blogs!

Distance From The Sun....

In Room 10 we are learning about Planet Earth & Beyond.  Today a group of students went about the task of working out which planets were closest to the sun.  

Below you will find a video made by the students sharing their findings.

It's hard work this measuring business!

Big thank you to Whaea Jess for supporting the student's learning.

Number Strategies.....

In Room 10 we are always looking to see which is the best strategy to use when solving a problem.

We have to remember to go back and check out answers.

Can you work out what the missing numbers are?   

Have a go, then read on to find out how we managed to answer the question.....

We had to work together to solve this challenge.... it took us awhile but we got there!

Place Value Practice...

In Room 10 we are practising and consolidating our knowledge of 'Place Value'.    

We can expand a number, for example:  

542 is the same as 500 + 40 + 2  =  542

500 = 5 groups of 100

40 = 4 groups of 10

2 = two ones

This knowledge is really important because. it helps us understand the meaning of a number.  If people just used numbers randomly, no one would know which numbers people meant.  You need place value to understand the order of numbers as well.

Below this picture you will find links to cool 'Place Value' games.

We support each other with our learning, developing our ability to collaborate with others and share our knowledge.

Here are some links to practice 'place value'

Maths Challenge - Plotting Coordinates!

Today in Room 10 Group 3 we were learning about how to plot coordinates on a grid and join these to make a 2D shape. 

After some discussion, instruction and a little practise the team decided two of the boys would go head to head, to see who could complete the challenge first.... 

At the end of the challenge they realised they hadn't read the part that asked them to make the shape symmetrical.   Once they realised this, one team was able to quickly turn their shape into several triangles.

Watch the video below to see how it rolled out.

The team on the right at the last minute was able to make their shape symmetrical.

As part of our session on statistics today, students were asked to analyse data represented in a bar graph and pictograph.  Kaleb and Izzy were keen to share their findings with you on this particular activity. 

We love receiving feedback, so let us know what you think by leaving a comment in the box below.
