Sharing Assembly Practice!

Did you know that in Week 7 this term it is Room 5's turn to share at Sharing Assembly!!  We are not going to tell you what we are doing but we will let you see a couple of photos of use getting ready for it.

We would love to see you all come along and see our performance!!!

WALA Fractions!

In Room 5 we have been busy learning about Fractions.  The Cat Woman have looked at what different fractions look like using different shapes.  Then we looked at what different fractions look like in groups of objects.  We even linked our double and half knowledge to this as well. 

We used mini whiteboards to show this understanding.  Mrs C was so proud of us and especially enjoyed hearing everyone explain their new knowledge.  Tino Pai Cat Woman!

We are learning about place value

Today Lucas, Ruby and Jake did amazing learning about place value. It is important to know about tens and ones in a two digit number. We find a number, make it with place value blockas and then expand the number. For example we wrote 38=30+8. Great learning- tino pai!

How tall can you make a tower?

During Week 1 our STEM Challenge in Room 5 was to create the towest tower.  These boys showed a lot of resilience when working on their tower.  It must have fallen down 10 or more times and they never gave up.  They were determined that their "Santa Tower" was going to reach the roof.  They used fantastic problem solving skills and Mrs C could hear them talking about stabilizing and reinforcements. 

Room 5 watched carefully on Friday as they measured their tower and it was over 2 metres tall.  We learnt that a metre is a standard measure because a metre will always be a metre. 

Mrs C loves to see her class working together to solve problems.  You guys are true ROCKERS!

Problem Solving is fun!

The Highflying Heroes have spent this week problem solving in maths.  We were focussing on making groups and our talk move was revoicing. Revoicing helps us to understand different ways to solve problems and it helps us explain our thinking to others. 

The Hulk and Spiderman group came up with 5 different ways of solving one problem.  They used materials, skip counting, repeated addition, doubles and basic facts.  Ka Pai!!!  Keep this up!
