MOA technology awards

Room 3 is currently working hard on our MOA technology awards projects. The awards are for using ICT in the classroom. We are all working hard on different projects and will post them up here when they are done. Stay tuned!

Mathletics madness

Room 3 hit mathletics big time today with a massive effort. We ended up the highest scoring class in New Zealand and the number two class in the world. We did this by only doing our activities and not using matheletics live. Well done to 6 of our students getting in the top 10 for New Zealand and Madaline reaching the number 1 student!

Mathletics Gold!

Room 3 have finally got our first two golds in Matheletics. To get a gold each student must get 5 silvers. To a silver you need 5 bronzes. As you could imagine a lot of mathematics is required for each gold. Well done!

The lost Kayak drops by

Room 3 got to see the lost Kayak that was found on the shores of a South Taranaki beach. It was involved on a solo crossing from Australia to New Zealand, when a fierce storm swept it away from its owner. Luckily both the Kayak and its owner escaped major harm and he came to answer some questions from the students. Here are a few pics.
