Jarred's and Emily's Maths

This Maths activity was given to Jarred and Emily to demonstrate their learning. They had to work independently to work out and explain their thinking in how to correctly order  five numbers from  the fhighest to the lowest.

I probably didn't explained the ordering well. However, the movie demonstrates how both students can use an abacus for work out the Place Value.

There is so much more learning than maths in this video like working together, speaking clearly and using ICT .

Awesome work!!
Very proud of you both

Mr Thurlow


Samara conquers Mount Cook

As a part of Room 2's Writing programme, the students have been asked to write a diary recount on different New Zealand's famous landmarks and tourist spots. Here is Sarama's diary entry for Mt Cook.

Dear Diary

I am finally back home from Mt Cook and it has been a month since I have back.

Now I am going to tell you about Mount Cook.

I woke up on a Tuesday very early and started to climb on the steepest part of Mt Cook. I found base camp.

I put up a tent by myself. After that I got my pick axe and started to climb. I threw down my rope because I went to high!

I did reach the summit, and at the summit I had a beer and chocolate cake. I felt very proud standing at the summit.
