Maths Learning

In Maths this week, Ropere had a challenge to see how many different shapes they could make with four unifix cubes.  They took some photos of the ones they came up with (and there are still more they could have made!)

Friday Poetry Challenge

Each Friday we read a poem together.  First, Mrs B reads it to the class and we discuss what it's about and clarify any new words.  Then Room 15 echo read it - Mrs B reads a line and then they read a line back.  The next step is for different students to read a line each.  Finally the whole class read it together, focussing on reading in unison, at a steady pace and with good intonation.  We then go away and illustrate the poem according to it's content.  We always choose 5 poems that have interpreted the message in the poem the best and then we vote for our favourite!! Here's a selection of the best poems from the last few weeks.

Pick of the Bunch Recount

Leal was given the top vote this week.  Here's his recount:

"Oh," I yawned as I got out of bed.  Then I went zooming down the stairs.  I went to watch tv then when everybody got downstairs we had breakfast.  I ate as fast as a cheetah then we went to our cousins house. We played tennis and we went to the park.  First I went on the slide, it was massive like the Skytower.  When I got up I went down, it was very fast.  I felt as if I was in a rocket.  After that I went on the spiderweb.  It was big.  When I reached the top I felt like I was King of the World! I was wondering how to get down but then I figured it out.

Team Trip!

Yesterday the Tipa Community went on a trip to the Millenium Institute of Sport and Health.  The 3 classes were mixed across 5 groups and got a chance to practice skills that are vital to the smooth running of a community - teamwork, communication, risk taking and having fun! Room 15 had a blast!  Thanks to the great instructors who ensured the day ran so well.

Pick of the Bunch Recount

Well done to Olivia who was voted the winner of our recount challenge this week.  Here's her writing about Go-Karting:

On Sunday I went to Rosebank Road to do go-karting.  We had to get up at seven o'clock, it was tiring.  My dad came in to my room and checked I had all of my stuff again then he took my bag and put it in the car.  I got up and walked in to the lounge.  Dad handed me a plate of scrambled eggs with bacon on the side.  "Eat up," he said.  Mr Woofles jumped on my lap and took some of my bacon! He ran out the door with the bacon.  "Mr Woofles," I said.  I ran out to get him.  Then we had to go.  My dad lifted my mum out of bed and put her in the car.  Zoom, we were gone.  When we got there dad lifted out the kart.  It was a good day and on the way back I got McDonalds.
