Tennis Ball Maths!

Mrs Rush was given a whole lot of tennis balls by Koru Tennis Club.  She had a problem that she needed our help with.  She wanted to know how many tennis balls there were so she could work out how many to give to her teacher friends.

We started to count them in ones but there were so many, and we got interrupted and mixed up.  We problem solved and decided to put them into groups of ten. We all took turns at making groups of ten. Mrs Rush helped us to count in tens. There were 232 tennis balls!

Over the last couple of weeks we have been learning about insects.  Look at what we have been up to!

It's My Bread!

This week we read the books 'It's My Bread', 'The Little Red Hen' and our shared poem 'I Like My Bread.

On Friday we made toast. While we waited for the toaster we chose our topping. Then we spread the topping on the toast. Next we sat with our buddy and ate our toast. Yum!

There will be more photos displayed in Room 7 next week.

'Rumpus at the Vet'

Over the last couple of weeks Room 7 has had an animal care area set up in class.  This was based on the books 'Rumpus at the Vet' and 'Greedy Cat and the Sneeze'.

A big thank you to Mrs Rush's daughter Melissa, who gave us many of the resources for this activity.

Leaves, Leaves, Leaves!

Room 7 had such fun at school today.  Mr Parnell (caretaker) took time out of his busy Monday to make a huge pile of leaves for us to play in. Afterwards we drew and wrote about our experiences.
Thanks Mr Parnell!

Tui Friday Afternoons

Most Friday afternoons the whole Tui Team participate in Play Based Learning on the field.

The children enjoy the opportunity to interact with other Tui children, use equipment in different ways, and generally have fun.  What a great way to finish off a busy school week!
