End of term 4!

Today we celebrated winning Kiwi-Can for this term!

Thanks Miss Lily for our pizza!

We have all worked very hard this year, and moved up lots of levels in our learning!

3 students were celebrated at whole school prizegiving
Hevani - school value award
Paula - most improved award
Lydia - academic excellence award

However the teachers thought we all deserved an award.

From Miss Ashley - I am so proud of you all, have a great holiday!

Sierpinski fractal triangle

Today we made a sierpinkski fractal triangle using 3d pyramids we made from nets.

A sierpinski fractal triangle  "is a mathematically generated pattern in which self-similar shapes are repeated across different scales in a never-ending feedback loop. (I think I got that right.) In layman’s terms, the same shape is repeated in different sizes to infinity."

This was a unique way for us to practice making 3d shapes from nets. 
We then we could also decorate our classroom with Christmas stuff!

Inquiry 'create' - making our own games!

As part of our inquiry into Traditional games, we had to make our own games out of everyday objects.
Here are some of our games!

Today in maths we talked about polygons as part of geometry.
First we talked about the names and shapes for shapes with 'x' amount of slides and corners.

Many students didn't realise that the first part of the word meant a number (e.g. octogon has 8 sides because oct means 8).

Then we talked about different kinds of triangles, because we all didn't know there were different kinds!

Lastly we talked about parallel and perpendicular lines. Miss Ashley had put tape on the carpet in this way so we could sit in parallel and perpendicular lines.

Christmas Party

Last Friday we had a Christmas Party. The wonderful Miss Park organised this for us. 
We wrote letters to 'Santa', and we received presents from 'Santa'.

All the 'Santa's' also put on a sausage sizzle for us and we had a whole school shared lunch.

Here are some pictures from this awesome day.

Thank you to the kind and generous people at Vero who bought us all presents!
We really appreciate it.
