Marvelous MERC

In Week 4 the Kea team (Room 3 and Room 4) went to Long Bay to participate in marine education. While we were there we persisted with activities like kayaking, body boarding, abseiling and raft building. We had to show respect, collaborate with others and try to participate in all activities.

Proving what we've learnt!

This week in Room 3 we are doing lots of assessments. Sometimes they are challenging but we are excited to show everyone what we have learnt this year. To help us with these assessments, we made Google Drawings to show how we can be respectful and responsible. Here is Nila's poster:

Genius Hour

This term we have started a new genius hour project. We think of a question about a problem we have noticed and then do some research about it. Later in the term we will create something to try and solve the problem.

This is Krisina and Losaline's project:

Minecraft Superheroes

In Maths we designed superhero characters based on Minecraft. We had to calculate the area and perimeter of our characters.

(To be sung) Who lives in a pineapple and was made by Room 3? Spongebob soft plastics bin!

In Technology we have been looking for problems in our school to try and solve. We noticed there was a lot of soft plastic waste that we had no way of recycling. We decided that this was not very sustainable. So we designed 3 bins to collect soft plastics (the one that collects the most will win a prize). If you had some soft plastics to recycle which bin would you choose?

Team Spongebob? Team Wheels? Team Slam Dunk (no actual dunking allowed)?

Jagged Smackdown

In Room 3 we are all jagged. This means we are all good at different things and need to work on different things. Last week Room 3 students got advice from their families, friends and YouTube to work on their jagged goals. They then had 60 seconds to present their findings at our first ever Room 3 Smackdown!

We've just finished our two weeks of swimming at New Windsor. We learnt some important information about how to stay safe in the water. Wesley students leave some comments to share what you learnt...
