My comic collage - by Jessie

When we were making a comic collage, we had to take photos of us doing these four steps. The reason why we had to do a comic collage was to make sure we will look after our chromebook safely. When we were finished our comic collage, we all had a look at them as a class and there were mainly photos of Malae!

Who has the longest perimeter?

To check what we know about measuring length, we each measured our perimeter.  We agreed that we would use centimetres as our unit of measurement. Most of us predicted that Bella would have the longest perimeter in Room 10 as she is quite tall.

We worked with two buddies so we could help each other.  First of all, while one of us made the biggest shape we could, our buddies drew the shape.  Next it was time to measure the four sides of the shape accurately.  We worked out the perimeter by adding the length of the four sides together.

After finding the longest perimeter in each group, we compared measurements to decide the longest perimeter in Room 10.  Yes, our prediction was correct: it was Bella.  She made a shape with a perimeter of 584 cm.

Tyrone has appeared on Homai Te Pakipaki and will be performing again in a semi-final. He has immense talent and big dreams. Tune in to Maori TV to support our local talent at 8:30pm this Friday evening. Kau ma te wehi!

"We're making clay pizza" by Leilani

My class mates and I were making fraction pizza out of clay. It was fun. We were talking about what toppings we were going to put on and who we were going to share the pizza with. When we made our pizza, we had to make sure that me and my buddy had the same amount of topping when we cut the pizzas into quarters, thirds and halves.  That's what we're up to with our maths.

or driving in a car and there is an earthquake:

Going to save the world! by Zion

This is one of the first Digital Learning Objects that we created and it was quite tricky.  I chose somewhere in the world I would like to visit one day.  Then I found an image of it on Google images.  Next, I cut around a photograph of my head using Pixlr so I could put  myself in that place.  Maybe I will travel there in the future in real life.

Whakarongo mai!

On the last day of Term 3 we enjoyed listening to the different speakers at the Year 4-6 speech finals. As well as Zion speaking about crocodiles, Tupouseini shared her knowledge of moa and Bella spoke in her first language, Tongan.  Next we were part of the audience listening to the Year 7 & 8 speech finals about rugby, friendship and goals for the future.
