Welcome Back to Term Three

Term Three is going to be a busy term with lots of things to get through! We are going to mainly be looking at the Olympics (which begin on the 8th of August) as part of our inquiry. Take a look at the official Beijing Olympics Website for 2008:


Room 12 will be heading up to the Snow Farm in week 3 and to Cardrona later on in the term. I'm looking forward to the children teaching me some of their skills as I am a beginner when it comes to hitting the slopes!

We are looking at geometry (shape) for maths over the next couple of weeks.

Don't forget to check the blog regularly for Room 12 updates :)

Maths Challenge

On the last day of Term 2, Room 12 undertook a maths challenge of all the learning that has taken place so far this year. Everyone had a partner to work with - it was wonderful to see everyone co-operating and bouncing ideas off each other. The winners were the first group to complete all 20 questions correctly. James and Phoebe won the challenge! It was a great way to find out what we need to continue to practice and to also see what we are really good at in maths.
