Today we had Kelvin and Kate from Sports Taranaki: Skills4Life come to school. Kelvin and Kate will be working with our class every Wednesday for five weeks. We look forward to learning some great skills and activities with them.
For Calf Day next Thursday one of the categories is a piece of artwork. We looked at some artwork from the artist Piet Mondrian. After viewing his work we have started creating our own version. Here is the beginning of our work. If you want to see our finished product then please come and view the work on Thursday afternoon (23rd October).

This week for Maths we are working on a measurement unit and converting between mm, cm and m. To help with this we have made some rockets. Today we had our first launch.
Over the next few days we will make changes to our rockets and see if we can make them fly even further.
What changes we will see?

We have hit the ground running for our first day back.
Today in writing we watched a video clip about a boy travelling to the moon in a rocket. We began discussing what holiday we would travel back to and throughout the week we will be sharing our diary/recount with others. Lets see what the week will bring and where in the world we will travel back to.
In the afternoon we began creating our own rockets. We will be using the rockets during maths to record how far each rocket can travel. We will be looking at mm, cm, and m.
Who will create the best rocket?
Below are some photos showing the process of making our rockets.
