We had an awesome time in Hobbiton last week. Here is a video of some of the highlights!
Great to see so many Room 13 members getting in the spirit of Wig Wednesday! A fun way to support child cancer!
Today we did a collage to bring our pepeha to life. We found pictures of our mountain, river, flags, waka to have a picture of our pepeha. It was lots of fun!
Mrs Valencia and Mrs Hamilton have announced that auditions will take place next week for Team Tui and Team Ruru students, for ‘Stanley Avenue’s Got Talent’. Singing, dancing, instrument playing and short performances are all welcome to audition. A showcase will be made for the school and parents to attend for the finalists, in Week 10 this term.
The last two Fridays have been ‘Food Fraction Fridays’. We are trying to connect our knowledge of equal sharing, that we use in our daily lives, to the number knowledge of fractions. We have done this with equal sharing of food.
We have learned about sharing whole pieces and sets equally, adding and subtracting fractions, comparing fractions and equivalent fractions. Remember to keep practising at home!
This week Taine and Mikayla from Taha Wairua visited us. Today we wrote our pepeha. This helps us feel like we belong because it connects us to where we are from, who our family is and where we have come from.
Last week Mrs Hamilton said we should do some art so our art was inspired by Van Gogh, Starry Night. We all got to choose either the clock tower, walk bridge and the domain. Most people chose the clock. I chose the walk bridge. Then in the background we did the mountain. Tt has taken us a week

Today we watched a video on what DNA is. DNA is found inside the nucleus, inside a cell.
We learned from this TedTalk about leadership and how being a leader can just be about making small impact on the world around us. Drew Dudley shares about these moments, from his own experience about a lollypop.
We changed our class around so we had more space in our class room and we got
new table and now it looks amazing.From Sophie
THE SWITCH AROUND
Last week room 13 Had a switch around we decided that the desk
Were too cramped so we decided to problem solve. The next morning Mrs Finucune walked in the class. Mrs Hamilton was chatting to her about our problem she said that she will try to find something. She found
some tables in the library. We moved them from the library to RM 13. It was so nice and that’s the story of the switch around. by Hannah C
