Number Shapes

We drew a shape and put a number in it. Using blocks we spread them around the corners of the shape. Calculators were used to check our maths.

Here is Tamara's  quality work.

Junior Team Esplanade Trip

We had a great day at the Esplanade last week.  We used iPads to take photos, measured around trees, went on a scavenger hunt, had a bush walk and a big play on the playground. 
Here's a silver fern we found on the bush walk.
Having fun spinning around!
More spinning around fun!

Autumn Leaf Art

We made creatures out of leaves and added eyes.
They are all different. We used our Green Hats and were very Artsmart!

Jack and the Beanstalk

Here is some of our learning about Jack and the Beanstalk . 
We retold the story in our Draft Writing books and made pick a stories using interesting words. 
For maths we estimated and measured how many magic beans would fit in our hands. We measured in centimetres how long our foot is  and how big we thought the giant's foot was.
We had fun acting out the story. 
We even built a huge beanstalk with polydron blocks!

Here's the massive polydron beanstalk a group worked together to build.

Here are the leaves we collaged for the beanstalk. They lead up to the giant's castle in the clouds.

Here is the house where  Jack and his mother live. 

We made up speech bubbles for the people in the story.

We thought of lots of different words that we could use in the story. These are just some of them.You can make up your own story about Jack and the giant .
