Room 11 - States of Matter learning

Here is Room 11's video about States of Matter. This was our focus for our science learning in Term 3. As a class, we decided to create a video about facts of states of matter.

Listen carefully and hope you learn a thing or two about the 3 main states of matter - Liquid, Solid and Gas.

First Day of Term 4!

After a good 2 week break, we got straight into it! This morning we had a great discussion about GIVING IT OUR ALL this term. We want to finish this year off on a positive high, so we decided to set some expectations for ourselves.

Check out some of our expectation posters for Term 4!

Tw Wiki o Te Reo Maori 2019

In acknowledgement of Te Wiki O Te Reo Maori, Room 11 looked at a couple of Maori Waiata. We also created our own Pepeha, using a template Miss Tupou provided us with.

We celebrate all the language weeks in our class. Te Wiki o Te Reo Maori is important to us because we want to acknowledge the people of the land we live on. Miss Tupou talks about the importance of respecting TANGATA WHENUA and contributing to Aotearoa in a positive way.

Our way of showing respect is to learn the language, through singing and our Pepeha. Check it out!

This morning we decided our class needed a REBOOT and a REMINDER of why being POSITIVE is important.
Each of us wrote positive messages to keep us going and to stay motivated. Check out some of our inspirational writing!

Reading with Miss Kelly...

We've been very fortunate to have a student teacher this term. Miss Kelly took our NOVELS group (14-15years) for Reading. Our novel study this term is Harry Potter and the philosophers stone. 

Our WALT for this lesson was: Use context and images to define unknown words.

We had an awesome time learning new vocabulary, discussing our thoughts of the extract we were given and adding new understanding to what we read.

Thanks Miss Kelly.

GTS Science Fair

Today, Room 11 and the rest of Glen Taylor had the opportunity to go into each class and check out their SCIENCE FAIR PROJECTS. We enjoyed the learning about the science experiments in each classroom.

Our class's science focus was STATES OF MATTER. We worked in groups to conduct different experiments that exemplifies the processes of science we experienced. We had fun and we were proud of how everything turned out.

States of Matter

This week, Room 11 have been looking at the 3 main states of matter. We are learning about it so that when we conduct our experiments, we are able to explain the processes and chemical reactions that occur. It's been great new learning for most of us.

Today, we worked in groups to identify the properties of the 3 states of matter of SOLIDS, LIQUIDS AND GAS. The properties refer to the SHAPE, VOLUME, ARRANGEMENTS and INTERACTION of particles in matter.

Here are some photos of our learning.
