Sarah Johnson's book signing at Books for Kids

Room 10 were privileged to be asked to create artwork inspired by Sarah Johnson's book the Bold Ship Phenomenal to display in the Books for Kids store in Hamilton East. We would like to say a huge thank you to the lovely ladies at Books for Kids who were generous and gave us a free book if we visited the store. Happy Birthday Books For Kids.

Room 10 performed as the Young Farmer's Club in our school production of Wooden Arms by Sarah Johnson. We practised and practised and practised! It wasn't easy dancing swan lake in gumboots :)

Haka, written by Patricia Grace

You will have noticed we have been reading Haka as our shared book. We talked about why the haka is so important to New Zealanders and how it is an important part of our culture. We also realised the haka, and there a many, have been handed down from generation to generation. The purpose may have changed for some over time, but its importance remains.

Pokemon Enlargements

Room 10 has been busy learning about enlarging Pokemon images. We found it a challenge to get the squares exactly the same, but we persevered with great results!

Minecraft Selfies

For maths we have been learning about area and perimeter. Once we created our selfies, we then calculated the area and perimeter of our images. We used a variety of  strategies, including addition and multiplication strategies. We also needed to find the fraction of each colour we used in our mini mes.





Thank you Mrs M (aka Miss Atkins) for the great idea. http://r9sminions.blogspot.co.nz/search/label/math



Brain Matters

Our artwork comes from the idea we can grow our brains. After a discussion about this, we were inspired to create a zentangle hiding symbols of how we learn and what motivates our learning.
