Term 3 Room 10

We began Term 3 by celebrating 100 days at school.
We brought our collections of 100 'things' to school and displayed them in our class.  We looked at all the Junior School displays and many middle and senior classes saw our displays. We also had a shared lunch and a mini disco.

























We continue to learn our basic facts as these are the basis of all our math learning.
If we know that 6+4 =10, we also know that 4=6=10
10-6=4, 10-4=6, 
40+60=100   60+40=100
100-40=60  100-60=40

This term we will be learning to use 10's and 1's when adding and subtracting.
                                  eg      34 + 20 =?
                                            34 +10 +10=54
                                        or 30 + 20 + 4=54

                                  then    34 + 52 = ?  
                                             30+ 50 =80+4+2 =86
                                      or   52+ 30 =82+4= 86



Welcome to Term 2 in Room 10

Welcome to Term 2 in Room 10


We began this term by celebrating 50 days at school !  We are half way to 100 !

During the holidays Mina made a very special video and book about her visit to the Dentist.
Room 10 really enjoyed watching the video and reading the book. Thank you Mina.

A few days later William also made and shared a video with us.

We have began a science rotation with the other year 2 classes. We got to do some experiments which show 'Cause and Affect'

Paper darts were lots of fun :)


Mixing colours was really interesting



















We have been to music with Mr McLay, 2 times so this term. we get to practise on many of the instruments.



Cross Country day was lots of fun. We all tried to run as best as we could. Everyone participated really well.


We had a teddy bears' picnic on the same day as cross country. Our teddys enjoyed their day at school. Some bears came back on other days as well. 

On Friday of Week 5 we had Pink Shirt Day where the message is "to speak up to stop bullying. " This is a very important message.
In Room 10 we are "Bucket Fillers"

We were all looking very pink :)

Our Pink Rose apples were very yummy :)

Pyjama Day is always a highlight. It is so much fun learning in our PJ's.












In week 9 we hosted Whanau time with Room 20. 
We presented poi, songs, rakau, and matariki art.
We are all very proud of our Whanau time.

We finished term 2 with a trip to Waitakere Gymnastics.
We had an awesome time testing ourselves on all of the equipment. At first some of us were a little nervous, however after a few tries we gained confidence and gave everything a try.
 It was 'hard fun'  :) and a great challenge !






























Room 10 participated in many and varied fun learning experiences during term 2.

                                                We love to learn to lead.
