Post of the Week (Week 8)

We all know what a sunset is right? But not all of us know what makes the sky red right? Well now  your about to find out. The atmosphere scatters light, not all light though. The atmosphere is better at scattering blue light away which means that blue light gets dispersed all throughout the sky pretty easily. But red light is more likely to pass right through,which is why things appear redder on the horizon: More of the bluer light gets scattered away, while the red light comes (mostly) through to you.

This is also a great post Teague. Well done on researching information about sunsets. Great post.

Post of the Week (Week 8)

On Saturday I went to the Hurleyville pumpkin festival. There was a lot of things there but the one thing I liked was the coconut throw. I had to throw strong balls at four coconuts and what ever I hit I get.

So I lined up. The ball was in my hands and i threw it and it hit it! "Wow" said Dad as he handed me my next ball. "Nice job."

I threw my next few balls but I didn't hit it again. "Nice hitting said the lady as she gave me my coconut."Wow thats heavy" I said as I heaved the coconut over to mum.

That day was a day I will never forget. Well done Mackenna. I am really impressed at how well you have aligned your 4 photos. That is an interesting way to open up a 'nu'! Great post.

Post of the Week! (Week 7)

This is a great picture showing Katelyn E going on the Flying Fox.

On Saturday I went to Pukekura park with Nana, mum, dad, Grandad, my cousins and my two sisters.  I went on the fast flying fox, the slippery slide, the big climbing net and the bouncy tramp.

This is me on the fast flying fox!

Every week in Room 4 there will be A 'Post of the Week', where Mr Tai will go through all Room 4's students blogs and see which Post he likes.

String Cages

Today Room 3 and 4 have begun to make string cages. This is similar to making paper mache but instead of paper we use string. Today the students have started this art project by first blowing and tying their balloons, and then cutting string, covering it with glue and wrapping it around the balloon. Over the next week we will continue to post about our progress with creating string cages.

Maths Strategies are 'alive' in Room 4

We have finally begun creating Aurasma videos for the maths strategies. Here Katelyn S, Ryan, and Jordan watch how Mackenna uses reversibility to solve a subtraction problem. Come in and see how the students are using maths strategies in Room 4.
