Fractions posters

This week Room 5 have been using some of their fractions knowledge to make pizza fraction posters.  They had to cut their pizza into equal pieces, add some toppings and work out what fractions their pizza showed.  These photos show some of our pizza masterchefs finished work!

Rippa Rugby games Week 10

This week, the Year 5 and 6 students who have been learning to play Rippa Rugby after school headed over to Marist Rugby Club to play a few games against other local schools. They had lots of fun trying out their newly learned skills. Thanks to our photographer on the spot, Dontalion for taking these great photos.

Transformation artworks

We have been learning about transformation in maths (translation, rotation and reflection). We have created artworks to show our learning. We had to choose an image and show rotation, translation and reflection. We drew each image as a tile using pastels. Check out our amazing artworks!

Auckland Museum GEMs

Today Room 5 walked to the Panmure Library for a session with some GEMs (Guest Educator Maori) from the Auckland Museum. It was awesome! We learned to use a rakau or a patu and we told a story about the creation of Mount Wellington. Then we made a clay imprint of a matau (fish hook). Visit our student blogs to read about our experiences.

Place Value Posters

This week, one of our maths tasks was to make a poster with a buddy.  We had to make a poster about the place value of a 4 digit number.  We could show the number using place value blocks, write it in expanded form or word form and unpack the number of ones, tens and hundreds in our number.  We had lots of fun designing and creating our posters and we had lots of good discussion about our number with our buddy.  Check out these photos to see us working and our final products!
