A lovely waiata to sing at our salmon release into the Mataura River on Friday...

Some maths 'tricks' to get you thinking...

My favourite is the Japanese multiplication method - something different to try!

This week for writing...

Today's writing motivation for free-choice writing (though always aiming to show the range of our writing skills):

Click here to read about, and watch a video about, the 'rocket man' - maybe you would like to imagine YOU are the rocket man and describe your record-breaking flight.

Read about an important goal that Fonterra have set - maybe you would like to write to Fonterra to thank them for making this change to help our environment, or you might like to write a personal opinion about why we need to care for the environment.

Perhaps this amazing robotic dragon will inspire you to write about a dragon....

Wooden Spoon Puppets


We have been creating our puppets for our puppet theatre plays, in which we will be retelling some Filipino myths. Don't they look cool?! ('skirts' still to come, to cover our hands as we hold them)

Watch this space for the videos of our plays - we are busy with rehearsals and will perform them in a couple of weeks!
