Last day of term!

It was so nice to get out on the field today for some Team 5 Sport in the sun. What was your favourite game?

Have a safe and happy holiday Room 5! See you next term.

Number Talks with Mrs Madden

We were very lucky to have Mrs Madden come into our classroom yesterday and show us how to have 'Number Talks' in Maths.

She gave Room 5 the problem 18 x 5. Look at how many strategies we came up with. I wonder if our friends or whanau use any of these strategies or perhaps they have some other ones. It would be interesting to find out. Post any other strategies you can come up with in the comments...

This term, we have been practising Mindfulness with Mrs Driver, and learning how to focus our thoughts and breathing to feel more calm and relaxed during stressful times. We are getting pretty good at it. Here are some of the activities we did today. If you would like to find out more, just ask someone from the Room 5 team.
