100 Days of School

Today Room 7 is celebrating 100 days boy being in Room 7!

Our whole day is 100 Hundred themed.



We started our day with brainstorming ways to make the number 100:


I think we did pretty well.

Writing

In writing we wrote all about the things we have hundreds of .

Here is an example from Gabriella:

In room 7 there is hundreds of legos. At Holy Cross there is hundreds of kids. At home there is hundreds of towels that my mum has to wash!


Here is Emily's story:

In room 7 there is hundreds of crayons and pencils. There is hundreds of blocks and lego pieces. At Holy Cross there is hundreds of balls and hundreds of crosses. There are hundreds of birthdays and hundreds of children. At home there is hundreds of kisses and hugs.
Birthdays make me feel like having a party with my mum and dad. The hugs and kisses make me feel loved by my parents.

Here is Elias's story:

In room 7 there is hundreds of quiet critters and hundreds of legos. At Holy Cross there is hundreds of balls and birthdays. At home there is hundreds of toys to play with.

Here is a Pearl's story:

In room 7 there is hundreds of felts and pencils too. At Holy Cross there is hundreds of people and trees. At home there is hundreds of toys and hugs too. When I see the felts I see a rainbow and when I see the crayons I see lots of colours. When I see the people I see lots of excited faces and when my mum gives me a hug I feel my heart warming.


Maths

Even our Math problem was 100 themed today check it out.

This week in math Miss Robinson wants to do an activity that uses counters. To complete the activity each group will need 100 counters. In total Miss Robinson has 743 counters. How many groups can Miss Robinson have do the activity?


Art

In art today we completed a  100 poster. Each student had to create a poster that showed the things we have done in the first 100 days of school. Check them out below.

Writing with the 5 W's

This week we are learning how to use the 5 W's (When, Who, Where, What, and Why) to add detail to our writing.

We are using the Oat the Goat interactive story from Bully Free NZ (http://www.oatthegoat.co.nz/) as motivation.

Check out some of our stories below.


Oat the Goat 
by Jannah

Oat the Goat wanted to go for a hike so he went to the mighty mountain. It was a warm summers day so he could see the view from the top.

Oat the Goat 
by Matthew

On a sunny summer day Oat the Goat went to the mighty mountain to go for a hike. He wanted to see the view from the top.


We are going to use this as an introduction to our stories. Next week we are going to look at using the words "first" and "later" to write paragraphs. Keep an eye on the blog to see what Oat the Goat got up to on his hike.
