Week 7 Term 4

Thank you to all the parents who came in and shared a story with us at the end of school this week. Great choices and our very first Christmas story of the year! There are still places left on the sign up list outside the classroom so don't miss out.

In our Popcorn Shop Inquiry topic we sampled 5 different flavours of popcorn. Tracy did not tell us what each one was we just had to decide in our inquiry groups if we liked it, hated it or somewhere in between. We then repeated this survey again with our buddy class later in the week. Our favourite flavours were "marshmallow and chocolate" and "cinnamon and sugar". Next week will be designing a logo for our packaging.

On Thursday we were entertained by the Nelson Intermediate Roadshow. We a wealth of talent from Kapa Haka, to students who could play the ukulele behind their heads. It was an inspiration to us all especially our own Room 11 budding ukulele players.

In maths this week we started our topic on 2D shapes, learning the names and properties of circles, triangles, rectangles, squares and hexagons. Keep a look out for these shapes around your home.


On Friday we shared dragon making with our visiting friends. I was very impressed with the enterprising ideas for adding legs, wings and spikes with the left over paper rather than throwing it away. Well done! Our poem was also about a dragon and you can hear it on this clip.
