Glenbrae Kids Visit

Yesterday my class and I walked to Glenbrae Kids, which is a kindergarten named after our School. It was only like a 2-3 minute walk. When we got there, we sat down somewhere and sang a Maori greeting song called "Toro Mai to Ranga" to them. Then we had to choose a little buddy to play with, look after and get to know each other.

I chose a little girl named Madison. She had blonde hair and such beautiful eyes. She was so cute and she liked talking to me about the Elsa and Anna dolls. We played with them for a bit, then we took a little trip outside to play on their playground. I also took Madison for a ride on a bike.

I had so much fun playing with Madison and the other kids there. I hope we go back real soon.

Kiwi Sport - Tennis

This morning was our last day of tennis with our coach, Campbell. I didn't play, but it was still pretty fun to watch them play. It was really funny too. 

One of our students had a 10 shot relay, so that was pretty impressive to us and Campbell. Hopefully Campbell comes to teach us again in the future this year, because I like how passionate he is about tennis, he loves to teach us new skills and he also loves to tell us stories about tennis, especially about Serena Williams ha-ha. 

Again I had fun throughout the whole tennis sessions this term, and grateful we got Campbell to teach us.

New Math Strategy

This is a new strategy I learnt during Math.

144 ÷ 2 = 72 (half)
72 ÷ 6 = 12
72 ÷ 6 = 12
12 + 12 = 24

The problem was "144 ÷ 2 =" so you have to half 144 and that makes 72, then you divide 72 by 6, twice. 72 ÷ 6 = 12 and since you divide it twice, you get 12 twice too. So add 12 + 12 and the answer is 24.

That is a new strategy I learnt. I hope you understood the strategy and how I explained it.

Context Brainstorm - Maze Game about Sustainability

This is a context brainstorm about a maze game that I am going to create about sustainability.

The brainstorm tells me what sustainability means. The brainstorm also tells me what I should include in my maze game.

Air Pollution with Miss Sigamoney

As part of Science Intensive on air pollution we went outside, wiped objects and surfaces with a paper towel. This is what I found.

I wiped the border of the playground.
