Thinking like Historians, we found an old item to research. After finding out about our item we shared these interesting facts with our classmates. We compared the olden day item with what we would use today. We learnt so many interesting facts from each other.

Once again, well done to the children who presented their “Olden Day” item to us last week. We learnt about, and compared items such as games, diving backpacks, money, clothing, brushes, houses, toys, books and irons. Thank you for the efforts you have gone to in preparing the items for us. The children have been fully engaged and it is exciting to see them driving their own learning. We look forward to the last 4 presentations this week. I will update the blog with all the presentations after Wednesday.
As you are already aware to celebrate the success of our “Historian” theme we are inviting Grandparents, or older friends, to join the children who will share their learning and entertain, with some singing. Grandparents can then stay on to have lunch with their grandchildren. This is being held on Thursday 24th May from 11.30- 1.45ish. (Lunch eating time is 12.45-1.05.)
This is our last week for discovery learning as Mr Hastings will be back in week 6 teaching football skills.
Remember to view our wiki page http://rimaroom.wikispaces.com/ and class blog http://hnpsjarvis.blogspot.co.nz/. This is a great way to get the children talking about their learning. We would love you to post some comments on our blog.
Homework Tasks-reading, essential spelling words, mathletics, numeracy knowledge ladder and handwriting.
Have a great week, Sue

Autumn art or Maths...how about them both! Fractions, halves, quarters, repeating patterns, symmetry, balance, equals, same... we had so much fun creating these art works.

We are learning to think like Historians. It was so much fun visiting the Waipawa Early Settlers Museum. We were able to "have a go" at using so many "olden day" machines and tools. We all decided that life 150 years ago was very different to today.
