Last Thursday the year fours went to Te Tuhi and we did a special work shop about matariki.
First we got in the van and we got driven to Te Tuhi by mr walker. At Te Tuhi we learnt about Matariki. Afterthat we got told what we were going do by Jermy Jermy is our leader. We were creating vertical gardens out of bottles. Next we had to cut the top of the plastic bottle. Then we had to decarate our plastic bottles with stickers and vivid. Then we had toput the pummis and the soil in the bottle and put a plant in there.
Last week we went to TeTuhi and we did a role play for Jeremy,he is the leader. Then we went to the art room and started our posters about how the kiwi lost his wing. Then we started to draw all the birds was kind of hard. The hardest for me was drawing the tui because it had so many parts of it.the kiwi was the hardest.
This week we all learnt sign language but only our name so it was easy to say then any thing other. Then we started to play follow the leader well doing sign language it was easy/hard. Then we had to buddy up with someone and spell your name. After that we watched Mrs Graham do it and she was better than you thought.
This week the year fours went and did bike skills and on our first lesson we talked about safety before we start riding the bike. Then it was our second lesson and we got to ride a bike but in a straight before we could ride around.

I was learning to read numbers up to thousand and to say which is bigger or smaller.
The thing that helped me most was: - using my basic facts to help with bigger numbers - using streets and houses to break up bigger numbers - realising that the success criteria doesn’t change when the numbers get bigger - practising on Mathletics
My next step is to:
- try the same activity suing bigger numbers - use this information to move problems
