The iMovie advertisements are finally here!

Room 3 has finally completed most of our advertisements and have decided to share them on our blog. It took a week and a bit of hard work using iMovie and the blue-screen function. We hope you enjoy all of the hard work and leave a comment on your favourite movie!

Here's number 4

Number 3 is up

Here goes number 2

Here is our first energy drink advertisement

Letters from Vonsild School in Denmark

Room 3 opened our letters all the way from Vonsild School in Denmark. The students were excited to learn all about things from other countries. They really enjoyed reading the letters and are going to write back to the students. Here are a couple of photos.

Shark Blog Spotlight

Sean has been making his student blog all about sharks. Pop over and check it out. He has researched and found lots of interesting facts about lots of different sharks, including The Great White!

Finding the median

Today Room 3 had to find the median of our stats data. To find the median, you need to put the values in order, then find the middle value. If there are two values in the middle, then you find the mean of these two values. Here are some students explaining it further.

Finding the mean of all of the packets

We have been hard at work analysing the data of our packets. Here we are finding the mean or average of each colour in all of the combined packets.

Collecting all our classroom data

Today Room 3 went around and collected up all of the other students results. The Smarties group collected up the data from all of it's members, as did the M&M group and the JellyBean group. We did this so we could analyse the data and work out the mean, mode and median.

Statistics investigation

Over the next week Room 3 are conducting a statistical investigation into lollies or candy. Today we counted up the total number of lollies in our packets and made a tally chart of how many of each colour was in the packet. Here are a few pics of the action.

Y5/6 Rugby Semi finals

Some students from Room 3 played in the Year 5/6 Rugby Semi finals today. The conditions were freezing and the team were playing really well. The rest of the class went out to watch and cheer on the team. Here are some photos of the action.

''Pick a Path'' stories on their way

Room 3 are at a stage where some students are good enough writers to design and write their own adventures, much like the one Mr Spice made at the start of the year. This is going to be a big job and take a lot of thought, so stay tuned for some updates. Here is one of the basic plans:

1000 words

Some room 3 readers are currently playing a new game for reading where they have to read as many words as they can in a minute. Things are moving a long at a good pace and by the end of the term they should be experts.
