Dr Suess's Magic Dough - Maths Time - Room 1

Today in maths we looked at measuring solids and liquids.

Room 2 Mathematicians at Work

Room 2 mathematicians created this great work of mathematical art on their floor.  Luckily our usual cleaner was away that day. 😅

Maths class today: We covered transformation, symmetry and reflection, as well as introducing degrees and compass points.  Well done room 2 mathematicians! Good work.

A Poem by Maya

"Walkies!"...I call in my highest pitched voice
and his legs go all silly like they haven't a choice
and his tail waggles madly as he scoots across the floor,
winding around like a rudder til we are steered out the door.

Then the cool morning air hits his nose and without a sound,
he vacuums it up as he sniffs all around
and he just can't decide on the best way to go.
So I have to say "Here boy!" to show that I know
and sometimes he runs off to hunt down a scent 
and I huff and I puff just to see where he went.

And I have to be quick because I know he has forgotten
that Mum doesn't like it when he rolls in things rotten!
Then when we get home I collapse on the chair
and he gives me those eyes like to say it's not fair
and I tell him that walks cannot go on for ever
and I know that he knows because he's terribly clever.

Technology Shoe Challenge (ShoeTec) - Discoverer's 1

On Thursday, all the students in Room 1 and 2 were put in teams of 3 and challenged to make a shoe!  The shoe had to stay on when walking across the deck, then it had to stay on when running across the deck.  It was judged on functionality, manufacture, and special features, and an extra point was awarded for team work.

The winning teams were in equal first place:

James, Maya, Isaac
Kai, Adelle, Oliver
Morgan, Madoc, Louise

Here are a selection of photos of the creations.

Dear Rosie

Hi everyone

Unfortunately, it appears that dear Rosie has come to the end of her stay with us.  We have spoken to the children and explained that 9 is very old in bunny years and to think about the great retirement she has had with us up here.  She has given and received so much love from the children and visitors, and has been such an amazing character.  We have appreciated all the support, vegies, and love from your homes as well.

Thank you for your understanding.

A Poem by Eric

The Cat in the Hat by Eric M

Yesterday I saw a cat
and guess what?
It was in a hat!

You'd think it was probably sad, 
but it turned out it was
with a rat.

They told me
they were friends.
And now this ends.
