We are a class of year 3-4 children who attend a semi-rural school on the outskirts of Tauranga in NZ. We are excited to be learning to use a blog to share our experiences and learning at Tauriko School. Check back regularly to see what we have been up to. We have a load of fun in our class and would love to share it with you!

Here is a task for all Room 6 kids: do you know what it means? Post a comment with the meaning of heihei. If you get it right you will go into a draw for a prize on Friday. Comments will not be seen on the blog until Thursday night so noone will be able to see what anyone else has said.
If you put te kupu ō te wiki into a correct sentence you will get 3 entries in the draw!
This term we are looking at the Technology of the Māori. As part of this we will be visiting a local marae and are currently preparing ourselves by learning about protocol. We can't wait to look at the carvings and kowhaiwhai patterns - we are even going to make some of our own. We are reading books by Warren Pohatu. (We will soon be looking at his stunning art.)
Here are some interesting links to look at. More will be added as we go along so check back in case you miss something cool.
Wow! Ngahuia went to the Best of the Best competition because she had done so well at the recent Y3/4 gym competition at Argos gym. She came second in the Springers Novice Y3-8 section at the Best of the Best! We are so very proud of her and her coach, Mrs Logan. Well done.
Mrs Severinsen shared this song by Boney M with us. We can sing the song to help us to remember the order of the months. This will help us with our learning in Maths: Time. Listen to the song. What do you notice about the lyrics?
We are looking at different strategies to use when solving problems with groups. We can use skip-counting, repeated addition, grouping and multiplication. Look at Mutu and Poppy's ShowMe and see which strategies they used with their page from Amanda Bean.
