Senior Team Mathex Challenge!

Another AWESOME activity during maths week was our senior team mathex challenge run by our very own mathex kids.
We were pushed to our limits and had to use many skills and strategies to solve the problems in our groups. Well Done Mathex kids for organising this event! It was loads of FUN!!!

Maths Trail

During maths week we all participated in a maths trail around the school. Some of the questions were really tricky but together, in our teams, we were able to do lots of problem solving!

Maori Language week!

Last week we celebrated Maori language week. Throughout the week we practiced lots of Maori terminology and then on Friday we played SNAP with our buddy class, room 1. It was loads of fun and we got to help our buddy class recognise Maori words we have learnt.
