Stardome Trip

We had a great trip to Stardome Observatory last week.
Our educator, David, introduced the Solar System to us and helped us think about each of the planets and begin to think about their size and distance from the sun.
After that we worked in groups to solve a quiz.
We walked all around the exhibitions and learnt all about planets and space.
Then it was time for our movie - the Perfect Little Planet - some aliens were looking for a vacation spot.
Then David showed us the sky above us - constellations and planets.

Art-a-noon Tea Party

What a great week we have had with our Art-a-noon Tea Party and Student led interviews.
Room 19 have done a great job sharing their learning in these different ways.

We are delighted to say we've raised $350 to give to World Vision.
The class has chosen where they'd like it to be donated - they want to support education, health and food.

Here are some snapshots of our class with their art.
Each child chose what their design would be - our warm ups included koru art, designs from around the Pacific and designs that were significant to them or their family.

Get Wise

Today we had a special visitor, Jadyn, from the ASB come to class to talk to us
about Financial Literacy.

We became CATHLETES by learning about:

  • Physical money
  • Invisible money (credit and eftpos cards)
  • Doing chores to help around the house

Jadyn said a credit card is like a library card - we borrow it then give it back.
If we give it back too late we have to pay a fine.

An eftpos card is using your own money.
The money is in the bank but you can use your eftpos card

At the Bank Of Stella, Jadyn deposited $10 and then used an eftpos card to buy something from Fabian's Shop.


Stella's Bank                                                         Fabian's Shop

Stop the Wheels, Look for Good Deals
We talked about choosing things that were good value.
Looking for the best price items,  items on sale, special deals like 2 for 1 deals.

Grandparents Day

We had a lovely time with our grandparents today in Room 19.
Students showed their work around the room, read stories, did a little bit of art or maths and talked about designs from their family.
It was lovely to see everyone's enthusiasm.
Here are some of our special guests.







Thanks for brightening up our day!
