Mushrooms

Harvest! This week our second crop of mushrooms came through. We managed to harvest them before they grew too big. Students took them home. Some ate them for dinner.

Word Study

Today we revised our learning from last week about homophones: words that sound the same but are spelt differently and have different meanings.






Our new learning this week was about synonyms and antonyms.

Science in a van



Today we had a visit from the Science In A Van team. They demonstrated the laws of motion from Sir Isacc Newton and taught us about forces that act on everything. It was very entertaining and we had some great laughs.

Financial Literacy

On Tuesday we had Marlon from the ASB GetWise programme come to talk to us about money. We learned about invisible money, looking for good deals in the supermarket, notes and coins, and needs and wants. 

Homonyms

Today we continued our learning journey about homonyms. We were focussing on homophones: words that sound the same but are spelt differently and have different meanings. We matched two words and the pictures that go with them.
