Optimist Yachting

Last week we went to Pandora pond in Napier and had a go at Optimist Yachting. We had one of the yachts at school before we went to learn how to rig it and how to sail safely.

It was a great day at the pond and many of us would love to go back and have another go!!

Technology Taster at HNI

On the last week of term Room 3 went to Havelock North Intermediate to have a go at some of their technology options. It was a wonderful experience and a chance for us to see what intermediate is like.

Maths Board Games

We used our maths knowledge to make board games. Each board game needed to pose questions for children to answer about different aspects of maths knowledge. We enjoyed being able to create a track and ways to keep the game exciting.






Homework

Jonty chose one of our homework tasks to make up your own theme park ride. There was a great variety of ideas and some amazing rides created. Jonty made a model of his ride, take a look! 

The Tempest

This term we have been working very hard on our production. Every one had a role. If you weren't performing or singing, you had the job of doing artwork and making props. If was a mammoth effort and one we are very proud of!

Artists Investigations

We have been learning about different art forms and different artists. We chose one artist to find out more about.

We found out about their family life, what kind of art works they made, what materials they use and their motivation for producing art works.






Maths - Algebra

We have been learning to write algebraic equations. We did an activity where we had to make up new paint colours and write the equation of how we mixed them.

Have a look at our examples!
