We have completed our hockey skills sessions. We were good - budding little black sticks.
- to keep our sticks down at all times
- the correct position for holding the hockey stick
- to keep our eyes on the ball
- to put the ball between our legs and waddle like a penguin
We are talking about volume. Not loud and soft, but how much a container holds. We are comparing the volume of different containers.
|We used a cup to find out how much water our container would hold.|
But we had to use blocks to find the volume of our boxes.
Henry is using the numicon to help him work out how many rods would fit in his container.

Signs and Symbols Give us a Message
We had a discussion about what is a sign and what is a symbol?
|Elizabeth, Riley and Libby have found the sign to say we are an Enviro school.|
|Hayley is pointing to the sign which tells us where the new Office and Sickbay are.|
|This sign tells people that this is our school.|
