At Papatoetoe South School I will be... Responsible!

Ruma Whitu is learning to stay seated when we eat our lunch. And you  know what? We are doing so well! Just look at us! 

We understand that healthy foods are important because they are good for our brain and our body. Eating healthy also means that we will have the energy to learn LOTS. 

Wow! Look at our delicious kai! 

Being responsible at lunch time also means putting all our rubbish in the bin, eating our healthy food first and looking out for our classmates on the playground.

Our Maths Robots

Kia Ora,

During maths time we have been learning about shapes. There are many different shapes, they all have different names and some have more sides than others! We created our very own robots using a variety of shapes, then we created number stories to be displayed alongside them!

How many circles can you see in the photo? What about tapatoru (triangle)??
Amisha used a tapawha (square) for her robot's body. Isn't that a great idea?!

Stay tuned as next week our Mathematical frogs and lily pads will be displayed! We hope you are as excited as we are!

Nga mihi,
Ruma Whitu

Concept- he waka eke noa

We are learning about perseverance at the moment. We are learning about what it means to persevere, and how we can use perseverance in the classroom.  This week we wrote about times we have shown perseverance. Here in Room 7 we understand that it is important to never give up!

The three B's

We are learning all about the three B's and how we can show them in our classroom. Together we decided that sitting nicely on the mat is a great way to Be a Learner! Sitting nicely on the mat means looking at the teacher and making sure our arms and legs are crossed. We are practising this every day!
