Term 3 Week 4
Lots of maths challenges and games this week. We will have a daily estimate challenge. At least 2 children who estimate the correct answer or are the closest will be entered into a draw at the end of the week for a prize.
L2 really enjoyed being the audience for the year 2 show; There's a sunflower in my supper. It was very entertaining. The teachers and children did a wonderful job and it was great to see all year 2 children had the opportunity to participate and shine.
Friday was a little crazy again with all the bells and a delay in the lunch orders, but we survived and no-one missed out. We trialled getting together with L1 for a shared activity (making kites) to help build friendships. It went really well, so we have decided that we will do arts and crafts together each Friday from 10am until morning tea.
On Thursday Ms Steidinger set up a STEAM CHALLENGE (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) at lunchtime. Challenge 1- Build the tallest tower using marshmallows and spaghetti, which a few of our L2 children took up.
Maths, maths and more maths. Each morning we will start with a daily estimate challenge and complete the tasks on the maths week web site. We will also be playings games and doing maths activities centred around what the children are currently learning.
Craft with L1 on Friday will be making model wharenui's, so could you please bring in any cardboard boxes.
Year 1 & 2 school cross country will be at 1pm 24 August.
