Easter Fun

With Easter this weekend we decided to do some eater things in class.   For writing we had to put cut up sentences about Easter back into order, before writing them down.  For maths we had to solve addition problems to help us colour in Easter eggs.  For Reading we had a shared book called Eggs, Eggs, Eggs.  It was lots of fun.

We also enjoyed this maths game below where we had to find the bunny which was hidden under the eggs.   We had a few different ways to play this.

Children in Room 5 for maths would simply be working on identifying the numbers.

Children in room 6 could choose to either practice their numbers before and after, e.g. is it the number before 19 (18), or by practicing telling others how many tens and ones were in these numbers, e.g. for 19 we would say... 'is it under the egg that has 1 ten and 9 ones?'.

These are things we have been practicing in Maths.

Hockey skills with Brad

Today we were learning about how to play Hockey.  It rained the whole time but we had so much fun!

We learn't how to hold our hockey stick and that we need to keep the 'hook' on the ground.  We had heaps of fun playing 'rob the nest' which helped us learn how to keep the ball close to our stick.

Project Energize - Athletics Practice

Today Gina (from Project Energize) came to work with our classes.  

We were learning how to throw different objects.  We practiced throwing shot-put, discus and Nerf (which is the same as a Javelin).  Some of us were really good at it, some of us think we need to keep practicing, but we all had fun.

Ngarino practices her spelling.

Here is Ngarino practicing her spelling words.  She is learning to recognize high frequency words like 'I' and 'am' and also her name.  She is very excited to be learning her name and as you can see from these photos she is doing really well. She is now trying to do this task with less Teacher Aide support.  Well done Ngarino.  Great learning!
