Farewell Mrs McLean

Today we farewelled Mrs Mclean because it was  her last day.
We gave her a plate with  our names on it.
All of us gave her a huge hug. She is leaving Hamilton to live in Auckland. We will miss her. Mrs McLean was in our class every Thursday this year for half the day. We liked doing art with her. What did you like doing with Mrs McLean?

3d shape spotting by the Triangle Maths Group

The group had to search around our classroom to find 3d shapes. They took photos using our iPad and then they put them into this picture for you using an app called Pic Collage.

It was hard finding sphere's in our class. 

Can you think of any objects that are the shape of a sphere? 
Have you played the 3d shape games on our blog?

Operetta show

At the Operetta for Hamilton East School there were lots of performances. They were about money. We have posted our videos from our performance for you to watch and enjoy. We wanted to explain to everyone that money doesn't grow on trees and that it is made by machines.

Money doesn't grow on trees

We are all performing in our school Operetta.

We have been practicing every day. We will be performing next week. We will have three night shows and one matinee show.

Next week we will need to come back to school at 6.45pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Here are some sneaky behind the scenes photos....

We have a full dress rehearsal tomorrow so we will come ready to participate.

3d shapes

We have been learning about 3d shapes. 
Sphere's are 3d circles and cube's are 3d squares. Triangular prism's have two triangles at the side and three rectangles to join them.

This is a cube. It has 8 corners and 12 edges. They are all the same size.

Pyramids have 5 corners and 8 edges.

What do you know about 3d shapes?
Where can you see them?
