Lights, Camera, ACTION! (nearly)

We are getting ready for the first ever Ako Hiko Film Festival. This week we have been reading some expert tips from Michel Mulipola. Then we wrote our own strories and planned how to turn them into films using different angles and shots. Stay tuned to watch the videos next week. Here is one group's plan. Well done Anaseini, Toe'umu, Lillian and Angelica.

100 Word Challenge

Room Three have signed up to the International 100 Word Challenge. Each week we get a prompt and have to write exactly 100 words about it. Here is John's mysterious piece about a door. I have sent it to the organisers and it may be chosen as a winner for the week!

This term we are designing different places where students can go and work. This week we talked about having caves. These are quiet places where you can go to work. We also have mountain tops and swamps. Can you guess what they are for? Here's is Lillian's poster for our caves.

This week in Maths we have been gathering and analysing data. Here are some charts we made based on the population of New Zealand (thanks Andrea - you might have to scroll across). This gave us the idea to collect some data for our own school. Stay tuned to see what we found out next week...

3, 2, 1.... BLASTOFF!

Today we launched our rockets. We changed the amount of water in the bottle to see how high the rockets would go. We found out that the less water you put in the bottle the higher it went. Can someone from the Kea team explain why?

Volume and Capacity

This week we have been learning about volume and capacity. We pretended we were trading with the island of Smati who use dribbles, plops and sloshes to measure liquids. Then we bottled up some water using their units of measurement. Here is the activity on NZ maths.

Toru TV Episode 9

This week's behaviour of the week is being responsible by acting safely. Here are some members of Room 3 acting safely on the courts. Can you think of ways you could act safely in other areas of the school like on the deck, in the bathroom, in class or on the field? Leave us a comment if you can. Also let your teachers know if you see someone acting safely this week so that they can give out tokens!
