Tasks for Week 5

Here's Friday's Team Task - Last one for the week.  

Draw a picture of all the people in your bubble and write a compliment for each of them

Other tasks you could work on are: 

  • Practice your times tables- have someone test you. 
  • Learn the School song
  • Solve Mrs Boyd's Jenga Maths Problem (scroll down)
  • Keep up with your gratitude journal

Remember, you can also check out the other Class webpages for more ideas.

Keep safe.  Have a good weekend.

Second to last day of the lockdown (fingers crossed!)

Here's THURSDAY's team task:  Learn the School Pepeha

I would love it if you sent pictures of what you have been doing.  

Maybe send me an email telling me how it went with the game you taught your siblings yesterday.  Are you still keeping up your gratitude journal? Do you think you know the words to our Talanoa Time songs?

Make sure you out the our Senior Team class webpages for more ideas.  

See you at our Google Class Check in at 12pm!

Jenga Maths Problem

Do you remember how we were going to work with Mrs Boyd to create a giant sized Jenga set for the school?  Mrs Boyd needs your help to solve  this Maths problem 

A Jenga set has 48 pieces which are stacked in layers to make a tower. Each layer has 3 pieces and each layer is stacked on top of and across the other.

Room 19 are going to make a Jenga set. We need enough wood pieces to build it and have 7 long pieces of wood.

Each long piece is 84cm long.

Each Jenga piece needs to be 12 cm long.

How many pieces will we get from one length of wood?

How many pieces will we get from all 7 pieces of wood?

How many pieces high will our Jenga set be if we use all the pieces?

Will we have any pieces left over?

What if the Jenga set is so much fun, that the other senior classes ask for one? There are five other senior classes at Flat Bush School.

How many long pieces would we need in total to make 5 Jenga sets?

How many small pieces would we end up with in total?

Once the Jenga’s are all set up, how many small pieces would we have left over?
