Shading shapes

We are learning how to use pencil to create form through shading. We started by sketching a circle and added shading so that it transformed into a three-dimensional sphere. We added a cast shadow.

Makea sketched three shapes, using the pencil to show darker and lighter shades.

Sharing Mathiness

Last Monday during PENN we watched an old movie about the young people of PES spreading happiness. Today we shared our PENN movie for Term 1 about sharing "mathiness".  Room 11 is really excited about learning lots of new things this year and everyone loves Maths. Here's why!

KaitĪakitanga i nga wā kātoa

KaitĪakitanga i nga wā kātoa means guardians of everything around us. As guardians of our environment, we strolled over to Omaru Creek today to explore the birds, plant life and check on the condition of the water.  It was wonderful to see  ducks, pūkeko and dotterel in the clear water and around the reserve.  It reminded us of how this time last year the stream was severely polluted and needed a lot of cleaning and care to return it to a healthy environment.
