Length Area Perimeter

We have been learning how to measure length, area and perimeter using standard and non standard measures. This was a fun and engaging unit as the children were able to work with a partner and go outside to measure parts of the court. They also measured items inside the classroom.

Our Mihi

We have been learning our mihi this term. We have been practicing our pronunciation of the Māori language while saying our mihi. We have used Google Slides and Screencastify to add our voice to our mihi slide. We are proud of who we are and where we come from.

Creatures in the Ocean Report

We have been learning how to write an information report using a writing plan. We have also used descriptive focuses for each paragraph written. Each paragraph needed to have 2 descriptions of what the sea creature was and 1 action. Some have more. The children used their own ideas and then researched information about their selected ocean creatures. Most of the children used their own words and included some of the information from the research also in their own words. Some children found this difficult. We hope you enjoy reading our information reports about ocean creatures.
