Grey Main Cross Country!

Every year we have a cross country, here is some photos of us running our little hearts out! We were super proud of Declan, Brennan, Junior, Byron, Rowan, Jacob for getting through to the West Coast cross country.








Swimming

This term we are lucky enough to go down to our local pool every Wednesday for lessons with the swimming instructors from the pool. Here are some snaps of us practising our swimming.










Learning about symmetry

WAL about symmetry and we have created symmetrical patterns to make a flexagon. They were quite tricky and we found that when we used felt it made the paper too floppy so crayons and pencils were best. Here is a finished one. We are going to try some bigger ones this week.

School kit Ice cream fun!

We had soo much fun making ice cream! We thought it was a bit strange making breakfast ice cream because we don't eat ice cream for breakfast but we loved it! Some of the flavours were very strange. We enjoyed learning about the different types of heat transfer and becoming mad scientists for the day. 
Here are some of our posters we made about our ice cream. 







Which flavour would you like to try the best???

Our first two weeks

Welcome to Mamaku 3!

We have had a very busy first two weeks of school and what a BLAST it's been!
In the first week it was SOOO hot so we took a break from our class and had an outdoor classroom.
We had fun learning some new games... (silent ball)
We were lucky enough to have the Crusaders and Hurricanes play on the field at our school and we were lucky enough to have the trophy at school.
We have worked well as a team and the year 6 students have been great tuakana to the year 5 students.
It was VERY exciting when the year 5's got their new chromebooks, we were lucky to have some experts to help us explore.

We finished the week of with a really fun egg challenge. We got ourselves into groups of 2-4 and planned and created a contraption to protect and egg while it is dropped of the playground. We invited our whanau to come along and it was awesome to see lots of them there. 
Check out our video!!!
