Our Year so far in Room 5!!!!


Our 2014 term1!


This year in term 1 Room 5 have been doing writing,reading,maths,technology and statistical investigations. Here are some of the things we have been doing.

We have been doing technology as well.For technology we have been making drain covers because ducklings are falling down our drains,and dying also lot’s of rubbish goes down into the drain which is bad for our environment.

For maths we have been learning new strategies like revesability,equaladjusment,rounding and compensating.We have been trying hard to learn them and have suddenly got them sorted.

We made writing borders were we put our published writing to display on our borders .We used blue paper then we made patterns and coloured them in with pastels next we suck them on the wall.

For writing we have been doing information reports,rocket writing,holiday writing,recounts and free choice writing.

 For Reading we have been doing inferencing activities on the Tv. We had to answer questions some of the questions were who am I?, where am I? and what am I?.        


We have also done our statistical Investigations. For it we had to think of a question and survey students from Room5, then we collected all our data and then put it into two graphs. After that we analysed the data and made 3 statements and finally  we started a publish copy and put it on a board or a big piece of blue paper.

Super Hero Descriptive writing

On Wednesday  we drew  super heroes. We were learning to use our imagination to create and describe a super hero.The things we needed to include for our super heroes 
 was an enemy,  a secret lair, his or her suit, a best friend and a super power. Some were big and others were small. Some ate flowers and chocolate while others ate rats and dirt. Some super heroes  lived in Texas and New Zealand and in castles while others lived in  Jupiter and  under the ground.  There were lovely names like Power  George  and Sydey  there  were strange  names like  Fish boy and  Easter woman. Lots of super  heroes  could  shoot lazers from their eyes  and  have night vision and some were invisible. Over all we loved  creating  the super heroes,  it was so much fun. Thanks  Mrs Bennett.

Information Report writing


Caterpillars life cycle 

This is what a caterpillars life cycle looks like.

Firstly, a mother butterfly lays an egg on a swan plant and then flies away.

Secondly, after a few days a little caterpillar comes out and it starts to eat the plant.It gets bigger and bigger.

Thirdly, when the caterpillar is ready to make a cacoon it curls its head and hangs off the leaf and starts to make a cacoon.

Finally, after a few weeks you can see a butterfly inside of it, the cacoon opens and the butterfly comes out.It is not ready to fly yet.In a couple of minutes its wings straighten and its ready to fly off.Then the whole cycle starts again.

Hope you learned more about a caterpillars life cycle.
