It's all about Practise!

Room 16 has been working hard on their basic facts and improving their speed. 

We have joined Sumdog Maths which is a fun way to practise all maths. When we get enough points we can go into the online shop and buy fun things for our character. 
We have also entered the Sumdog contest where we will challenge other students in Auckland. It starts on July 5th.

We have also started using, Are you a Maths Magician site to practise our times tables. In Year 3 we need to know our 1,2 and 5 times tables automatically.

We will report how the contest goes after July 12th.

Stardome and Cornwall Park

Here is an iPhoto slideshow of our trip. We did observational drawing in the park, played on the playground and then went into the Stardome and learned all about Space.

Planet Roll Call

Here is our poem of the week. Read along and see if you can find the rhyming words!

Planet Roll Call
Eight planets around the sun,
Listen as I call each one:
Mercury? Here! Number one,
Closest planet to the sun.
Venus? Here! Number two,
Shining bright, just like new!
Earth? Here! Number three,
Earth is home to you and me.
Mars? Here! Number four,
Red and ready to explore!
Jupiter? Here! Number five,
Largest planet, that’s no jive.
Saturn? Here! Number six,
With rings of dust and ice that mix.
Uranus? Here! Number seven,
A planet tilted high in heaven.
Neptune? Here! Number eight,
With one dark spot whose size is great.
