The Fidget Spinner Muddler

Tamsyn, Tayla, Aaliyah and Payton working on the last clue.
So close girls!
We had a page with all of our suspects and we had to use our Mathematician and Detective skills to eliminate different names till we found our suspect.

We had 6 clues, which we had to use our tens and ones knowledge, measurement knowledge, basic facts knowledge and times table/skip counting knowledge to help us answer the question and get our clues.

Nirtika and Haru are using their 10s and 1s knowledge
 Tell your parents who you discovered was the Fidget Spinner Muddler!

Paige and Kathy are trying using their tables
 and skip counting knowledge

Helping our community: The Coast Guard

Mr Griggs showing us how we can keep our
 electronics safe when we are on a boat!

Putting on the right life jacket
We have been learning about how people help our community. What they do that make our community a safer and nicer place.

Today Mr Griggs came into Reremoana to talk to us about how water safety and how the Coast Guards help our community.

He taught us about life jackets and different types of life jackets there are, also why it is so important that life jackets fit us.

Kainoa from K3W and a few people from K2 helped Mr Griggs show everyone why it is so important that a life jacket fits you.

We even got the Coast Guards to say Hello to Reremoana on their radio!

Thank you so much for coming in! We are going to have to write about what we learnt tomorrow.

Air New Zealand

Air New Zealand came into Reremoana to talk to the Kiwi team about how they do Good for the community. We learnt about how they have a Green Plan where they recycle the rubbish from their flight. The amount of rubbish they recycle is the same weight as 18 elephants!

Wow that's a lot of rubbish!

We learnt so many things about Air New Zealand and some people even got to strut their stuff on the Reremoana catwalk! Then we did a lolly relay - class against class...well done K3A! Who were the lolly runner winners!

 work on their Diwali activities
Thank you to Mrs Gopi and Ms. Alee for coming in and giving us Henna Tattoos. We had a fabulous time and we were so excited to show everyone. K3 really enjoyed having you and want to thank you sharing Diwali Henna Tattoos with us!

We learnt that Diwali was a festival in India where they celebrate good triumphing over evil. I wonder what stories we'll be able to write tomorrow about Good Vs. Bad.

What a fantastic time we had at the at Science in a Van. We learnt so many new things! We had bubbles fly over our head and learnt about how if our bubble has helium in it it will float because of the density of the air and helium.

We went back to class and talked about how the dots (molecules) in helium were further apart then the molecules in air so our bubble floated.

Talk to your Mum and Dad about what you loved most about the science van.

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.
