Sharing our art...

Today Room 7 shared some art that we have been creating this week. We got a big, "WOW!" from the audience and that made us feel good! The art used the technique, action painting, and was fun to do. The art was to represent the galaxies that we saw on our trip to Expressions. Some of us used pastels and some used paint. We really want to do it again.

Making a nebula...

Wow! We couldn't believe our eyes when we walked into Expressions on Wednesday and were suddenly surrounded by stars!
We have been finding out about light this week and by visiting Expressions to see the solar system exhibition, it really got us thinking. We want to find out more about our universe! 
We really enjoyed making the galaxy jars which look like our very own nebula. 
A HUGE big thank you to all of our parent helpers. We could not go on these awesome trips without you.

Learning together

What an awesome start to Term 3 we have had! In Kea Hub we've had a big focus on how we learn together. Do we take turns and let others in our group have a turn to speak? Are we being respectful of other people's opinions? What does learning together look like? 
All really deep questions! But Kea Hub took it in their stride during this "fishbowl" activity where we all observe a group working together and then give them feedback on how they went and anything we needed clarifying. 

Ka pai Kea Hub! Working and learning together is so important and an important skill to learn.

When Fergusson came to visit..

We had so much fun this morning when some students from Fergusson Intermediate came to take us for tinana (physical education/well being). We learnt a lot about how we can get moving quickly and move to other rotations to keep our tinana fun and exciting. Thanks Fergy for coming to visit us!

A snapshot of Kea Hub Maths this week...

Tuesday was maths with someone for the first half everyone had a partner or more and were playing maths games, writing questions for each other and showing working out to each other. A lot of people we’re in workshops learning with the help of Mrs.C and Mrs.G. After maths with someone, maths writing is where you go onto a device and look on maths hub to find your WALT and learn it using books full of challenges and maths problems from stage 1 to stage 8 and all of the stages in between - AC

We had a visitor today!

We were lucky to have a canine visitor to our class this morning. Golly was very well behaved and got lots and lots of pats. We had a talk about dog safety as well - we should ask the owner first before patting a dog, show the back of our hand to the dog by placing it by their nose so they can sniff it and then gently pat the dog. 
Thanks for coming to visit us Golly! Thanks Rachel and Charli too for introducing him to our class.
