Miss Tait

Miss Taits hair flicks threw the air as she chuckles with laughter,her stubby earings move with her lips
as she yaps all day long. Her long dark jeans move around as she jumps high in the
air, her boots are now thumping and crashing on the ground as the music plays.

Water Tension

Room 17 have been partaking in more spectacular science.  Stay tuned for instructions on how to make a paper clip float on water, and a brief report on what surface tension IS.

Rangoli Art

As we were studying diversity and geometry we decided to combine the two.  Looking at Rangoli art from Indian culture we noticed most of them were symmetrical (the same on at least two sides).

Using a template that we created ourselves by folding paper into quarters and then cutting out, we used bright pastels to complete our own pattern onto black paper.

Those Rangoli patterns have been backed onto MORE bright colour that we chose, and added to our walls - come in and see them!

Fish Fighting

I see a Rarotongan woman rushing through the water and looking for fish.  She is thinking about getting fish, it is her duty.  Even when a shark attacks her!

She dodges the shark by putting her hand on it's neck and back and back flipping behind the shark.  Her heart pounds as fast as a car engine as it's razor sharp gills cut her hand, but she keeps going.

She grabs a bunch of fish, including me, and she rushes to the surface.

I'm slowly cooked for the good of others.

Acting Safely

At Reremoana we have been looking at the ABCD's of behaving for best learning.  The first was, of course, A - Act Safely.  Here are some of the ideas we came up with:

Using drama, we portrayed these qualities.  We captured our facial expressions and body language using imotion (frame by frame).

Over the last few weeks we have been looking at the faces, vertices, edges and nets of geometric shapes.

After designing our own geometric 'people' using polygons and plane shapes we then looked at everyday shapes.  Maths really is EVERYWHERE!

A cube with 6 faces.
Understanding edges and vertices - this cube has 8 vertices and 12 edges.

This rectangular prism (also known as a nut bar carton) has 6 faces - like a cube.

This cylinder has 2 edges and 0 vertices.
