This week we have been learning about patterns and doing lots of different activities. We even made patterns using ourselves. Can you guess what they are?
We did lots of lovely activities for Maths Week. Have a look at some of the things we did.
Rang a 3 experimented with Bee Bots today. We coded in a sequence of directions to move the Bots around the mats. It was great fun.
We did some lovely activities this week for Maths Week. Here are some pictures of what we did. They were fun ways of learning Maths.
We have been learning about 2-D Shapes this week. We used matchsticks and wool to construct the shapes we learned about. For art, we used Wassily Kandinksy's concentric circles as our inspiration to create flowers.
Today in Maths, we were working on the concepts of greater than, less than and equals. We used dice, playing cards, counters and whiteboards to practise our skills. It was a fun way to do Maths!
Maths Puzzle Fair: Some more photos from our mini maths puzzle fair. Lots of problem solving going on at every station!

Our 5th and 6th class students have been taking part in the Mathletes Challenge 2014. The children have been working on improving their maths in their own time at home and have been doing fantastically so far. The challenge involves children using the Khan Academy website to practice and master a variety of Maths skills.
So far we are in 2nd place overall in the country for primary schools. We are also very proud of our 3 fifth class students Kyra, Natalja and Marcus who are all in the top 10 in the country for fifth class and also Stephen C who is in the top 10 for sixth class.
We will have to keep working hard to keep ourselves up the leaderboard.
