Room 14 - Learning through play at Waterview Waterpark

On Tuesday we went on our trip to the Waterview Waterpark. Everyone had a great time and a lot of fun was had! We enjoyed splashing around in the water area, challenging ourselves on a tall playground and rock climbing wall, and having lots of fun sliding down a huge tunnel slide! Here are some photos from the day.


In Maths, we've been learning a lot about Place Value and we have also started practising the Two and Five Times Tables. We've been using the videos linked below to help us learn about Place Value and to get better at our times tables. We're enjoying using music to help us learn about maths. Check out the links below and see what you think!

Kia ora from Room 14!

We've had a great start to the year and have really enjoyed getting to know all our new classmates!
We've been learning a bit about Chinese New Year and as part of this we worked together to make a Chinese New Year Dragon out of coloured cardboard, paper plates, red fabric and staples. We think he's pretty cool - what do you reckon?
(Do you know why the Chinese New Year is in February? Hint: it's about the new moon).

We've also been learning a lot about Growth Mindsets. We've learnt that scientists have found that the brain is a muscle that we can make stronger by trying things that are challenging. We've been thinking about times that we've had a growth mindset and how it's important not to give up. 

Here are some links to videos that we've enjoyed watching to help us learn about having a Growth Mindset.

That's all for now.
Ka kite ano!
