GYM GYM GYM!

Today we had our last gymnastics session. We had so much fun and learnt so many new skills. We want to thank our wonderful parent helpers that helped us out over the past 6 weeks!



Parachute F-U-N

Yesterday was a beautiful day! After our exhausting school cross country, we headed out into the sunshine and played some challenging games with the school parachute! What a hoot!



Mad Scientists!


As a part of our oral language homework last week and this week we have been task with sharing a science experiment. This meant we had to research about an experiment, write it down, and then share this orally with our class to ensure we are practicing our oral language skills. Some from our class even decided to share these crazy and exciting experiments! Check it out!











Statistics

 For our last three weeks of the term, we are looking at statistics and probability. During our first week we had to decide on a question about the traffic outside our school and conduct a statistical investigation around it.





To answer our question, we needed to collect some data. To do this we took a little walk to the front of our school and collected some data. To organise this data, we use a frequency table. Check back here to see how our statistical investigations turn out.






Polyfest!


After working hard all Monday (learning a brand new Samoan song as well as working with four other schools), our Samoan Language Nest performed at the Christchurch Polyfest 2016. What an awesome job they did representing our school. Two students from our class Peter and Tara were a part of this group and we are so proud of them!

Stations of the Cross

For Holy Week, our class along with room 6 presented to our school and our parish community the Stations of the Cross. As a class we had to learn about Jesus' last days here on earth and how this is reflected in the Stations of the Cross.

In groups, we learnt a different station each and practice how we would present these in an engaging way. It was awesome to be able to work alongside room 6 and we did a fantastic job.
