Being A Maths Leader

Miss Fraser showed us a pyramid. It reminded us a little bit of the food pyramid except it is about how kids learn best. We learnt that the best way to make sure you've learnt something is to teach it to someone else. We had a go at this today in maths. We are teaching others about finding a fraction of a set. This is our first attempt at being maths teachers so please leave us a quality comment so we can improve our skills. Check out our videos!

How to Write a Quality Comment

In Waka Whanake, we watched a video by a teacher in America called Mrs. Yollis. She had some very good tips for writing a quality comment on a blog. We love her tips and practice them when we are blogging. We loved her video so much that we decided to have a go at making our own. Thanks for the inspiration Mrs. Yollis!

Sensational Swimming

For the past two weeks, we have been having swimming lessons at the A.C Baths. 
Our confidence and skills have improved heaps! 
Every day we would practice floating, kicking and different strokes to help keep us safe in the water.
On the last day, we had a very fun day! There was A LOT of splashing and laughter but we also learnt how be safe if there is an emergency in the water. Check out the photos of our last day at swimming. 

What was your favourite part of swimming? 
What did you learn? 
Can you remember the tips to be safe in the water?
Room 19 and 20 - can you leave a quality comment about swimming?

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day

Have you heard of food revolution day? We looked up the word revolution and it means a big change. We joined Jamie Oliver for his Food Revolution Day. He says it's important for all kids to learn about food in school and we agree. 

Here's a video of what we got up to on Food Revolution Day. We took a cooking class with Jamie and made Squash It sandwiches.
