Working together to make shapes

We have been learning about geometry. We made shapes out of string. We had to work together to do this and do lots of discussing and problem solving with each other.


This is how we made a triangle. Each person held a corner. We had to decided who was going to hold the corners.

This is our rectangle
We were learning to work as a group and talk to each other about how we would create the shape.

This is our trapezium


We were using a lot of the Habit Of Minds in this activity. We had to strive for accuracy, persist and problem solve!



Term 4 Habit of Mind awards

Well done James and Kania for being nominated for the habit of mind awards. Kania got her award for always striving for accuracy and James got his award for questioning and problem solving!!

Researching Flags


We used Google Images to research flags that belonged to countries in the Rugby World Cup.

We then got really fast at copying and pasting the images onto a Google doc.

Tycho's Tadpoles

We are lucky enough to have some class tadpoles in Room 7. Tycho found them during the school holidays and has brought them to school for us too look at and observe for the term.
Here are some YouTube videos about  tadpoles and how they turn into frogs. This is known as their lifecycle.
