Maths in K3

Liam and Naren matching fractions cards









Naren using the cards to help him create shape
We have worked really hard to identify thirds, fourths
and halves.
K3W has been looking at different ways you can identify these fractions!

We have been using our knowledge of shapes and symmetry to help us understand halves of a shape.










Making shapes can be a lot a fun, but when we only have an aerial, side or frontal view it can get a little tricky!

Great job K3W, we have started exploring what shapes we can make with the information we have been given!





Isaac using a geo-reflector to help him draw the other half
of his shape.



K3 have been looking at fractions and geometry. We have been using geo-reflectors to help us understand symmetry, symmetrical shapes and asymmetrical shapes.

Inquiry - Technology


Inquiry Survey


Today K3W went around to the Pukeko Team to ask a few questions about a product they want to sell at Gala. 


A group went to Room 11, 12, 13 and 14 to ask everyone if they would buy our product and what colours they would like their slime to be.


We were learning to collect information


To do this we needed to:
- ask a group of people questions
- record what people said
- say our questions in a clear voice


K3W did a fantastic job and had to concentrate so they remembered to look at the people they were speaking so everyone could hear them. 
We had a few very interesting responses and I think it will are going to have a lot of information we have collected.

Our PB4L focus this week was to focus on our learning. When we are on the mat and during our learning time we need to remember to move away from people who distract us, make good learning choices and ignoring people that could distract us. Our PB4L Superstars for this week are Amber and Hana from K3A, and Naren and Aaliyah from K3W.

There have already been a few amazing students in K3W who have moved away from distractions and really concentrated on their learning today! Fantastic work K3W

The last celebration is K3W won Cuddles the Kiwi again this week in our assembly for being respectful. K3W is on a roll, Keep up the great work guys!

K3W at Tip Top


K3W in front of an old Tip Top Truck - we were told it only went 35km so all the delicious Ice-Cream melted. Do you remember what happened to the Ice-Cream that was shiny?

The Kiwi team went to Tip Top today and had such a great time. We got to see inside the factory and Vanilla Ice-Cream being made, we also got to smell different flavours and guess what flavours the smell were.

We went on a tour around the factory first, got to choose a delicious ice-cream to eat and even saw a batch of bad ice-cream being looked at.

Then we were able to play on the Tip-Top play ground after we ate our morning tea. What was your favourite part of the trip?

Friday came to school


Friday the baby Lamb

On Monday we were lucky enough to have Friday the lamb come visit us before our PB4L assembly. We learnt about what lambs eat and drink and responsibility. When you are looking after a baby lamb you need to make sure you clean up after her and feed her. It was great to see and her the kids talk about responsibilities they have at home.
