World of Maths

World of Maths 
We went to Salisbury School for the World of Maths road show. 
We did all sorts of math games in groups with Kotuku class. 
We did graph games, estimating, fractions, weighing and much more.
My favourite thing was the koala sanctuary where you have to get from one island to the other with the planks. Peter the toy has to be able to stand on it with out touching the water. 
We think it was a really fun way to learn about maths and we wound like to do it again.

Andrew Chinn Visit

On Thursday Andrew Chinn  came to St Pauls to sing some songs and teach us some actions for the awesome songs. His performance was amazing and really funny. 
We learnt new songs about God and the Holy Trinity. Some of the actions were to shake your hands in the shape of a cross then after that you would start clicking your fingers in the cross shape. 
In the show he used the St Pauls choir to help out by singing some of the lyrics to his songs. 
Cordelia and Lydia sung two songs.

Fun Book Day in Kereru

What a fun way to finish Book Week!
We had such a great day today in Kereru Class. We came to school wearing our 'snuggle up with a book' clothes. We ate snacks, shared our favourite books and created 'Book Trailers' (using iMovie) on the iPads. Kind of like movie trailers but about our favourite books.
After lunch we had cookies and Milo and watched everyone's book trailers. 
Here are some photos of our day and a link to our class You Tube channel.
