Wednesday Online Session 1/12/21

Hosted by Mrs Zhao, Ms Haynes & Ms Young


WOW…. Another great turnout today, I think we had 14 students online and 3 teachers.


I love this online engagement - keep up the amazing online work that you are all doing!



Today we started off with our Karakia and our FBS pepeha…. Thank you Ms Young for leading our FBS Pepeha.


We then sang and went over the actions for the Six 60 NZSL -My Pepeha song!

After the song we read a story called - Rat on the rug. We asked a number of students to read different parts of the story making it a team effort creating a shared story moment together...


Uriah, Indigo, Polevia, Saint Paul & I think it was Delijah who read to us!

Uriah read this page nicely for us.

We discussed who the main characters are in the story.

We discussed the setting of the story (time and place)

We looked at the key words in the text.

Polevia read this page for us!

We spoke about how Nat and Tane might be feeling in this moment of the text….

Some of the responses were that they were worried, scared & frightened.

We also asked the kids to share what they thought was under the rug?????

We checked in with the kids and asked what they think will happen???

We tried a new online tool today and went into breakout rooms in our Zoom meet!

Mrs Zhao had a group, Ms Haynes had a group and Ms Young had a group and we discussed how we would end the story, if we wrote the story to make it more interesting!


Mrs Zhao went over the writing worksheet for today in segments based on the story we read.


Your writing task for today is to think of an interesting story ending - did the fat cat catch the slow grey rat? Or did the grey speedy rat escape?  Mmmmmmmm 


After our story, we played a maths warm up game online…



Then Mrs Zhao taught us about the Place Value House family - 3 siblings lived in the house little brother names ‘ONES’, middle brother named ‘TENS’ and big sister named ‘HUNDREDS’

We  spent time working on a few number problems using base 10 blocks….


When you have 9 (Ones) and you are given 1 more you make 10; this row of blocks connected together represent 1 row of 10 (Ten).



We learnt that to add faster we add the tens and then we count the ones.


We would like you to try and work out the last math page like the working out we did together (see picture below in green rectangle box).

We ended off with another Math quiz based on the place value system!


Check out how smart our Tamariki are!!!!



Ending our online session with our closing Karakia!

Monday Online Learning Session


29/11/21 Hosted by Mrs Zhao & Ms Haynes


Today was a great day for us online - we had so many students turn up to be part of our fun online session today!


We started off with a story about a little girl that liked to dream when she slept.

The story was called - Remember to dream Ebere

We then introduced our learning for today and went over the School Pepeha….


Well Done to Zapphire (Mum) and Jezrkaya who read out the FBS Pepeha for us!


After reading the FBS pepeha, we looked at rhyming words - the main idea was that words had the same ending sound!


We then had the opportunity to listen to Mrs Zhao read a poem. While Mrs Zhao read to us, we listened out for rhyming words….

Check out the photos of our rhyming word detectives that listened for rhyming words in the poem! 


We also had time to go over a multiplication word problem!

Check out how we solved question number 3…

We made tidy 10s and took away 7 as we discussed that it was easier to skip count in 10s than to add 9+9+9+9+9+9+9=


We then had time to sing along and learn NZ sign language to go with the six 60 - Pepeha song!



To end off our online learning we played a game of hangman!!


The word was Rhyming.



Way to go Polevia!

Monday 29/11/21 Week 7

Wow what a turn out we had today!!

Group shot:


Today our reading focus was based on reading with expression, we looked at reading with expression by identifying speech marks in the text. We asked children to have a go at changing their voice to sound like different characters and to allow the story to come alive.

  1. How many dragons were there?

Four dragons

In the cave

  1. How did they feel in the cave?

They felt lonely

  1. List the places they went looking for friends.

  1. How did the people at the park feel when they saw the dragons waiting by the bbq?

Scared, frightened, terrified, scary, worried

  1. What did the dragons do to show that they are friendly dragons?

The dragons helped by sizzling the sausages on the bbq with their fire.

Spelling Activity:

We then took a look at our sound knowledge and looked at ‘Dr’ words, extending their learning to the idea that when you change the end suffix you will create more words! 

Adding: ing, ed & es as word endings.


Maths:

We looked at the place value system - identifying that the zeros are place holders in larger numbers. (10 x bigger)



Family Facts:


We looked at arrays:

Today we learned about tonal modulation, this is when you choose one colour in this case blue and you mix different tones of blue to make it go dark blue to light blue.

Tonal modulation art will be used as the background for the Tuatara to symbolise that Tahi the Tuatara was blue- sad!  Thanks to Mrs Mayerhofler for this idea.

It was also good to learn the Maori days and months of the year, plus the question and answers in Te Reo - Ko te aha tenei ra?  Ko........ ........... o ............... rua mano, rua tekau ma tahi tenei ra.

Ko te aha tenei Marama? Ko............ tenei Marama.


Don't forget to practise our game!

Thank you to Mr Avatea for shouting the whole school an ice block to finish the week off with.



Today I was taking the girls class through our ARTS day.  The girls worked really hard on their happiness whariki.  Then we learned how to draw Tahi the Tuatara with a pencil drawing first.  Once we were all confident on how to draw a Tuatara we moved on to drawing a Tuatara with pastel on black paper.  We talked about blending different colours together and how to use pastels to create different textures.


My favourite part of the day was dancing to different types of music to convey the different moods we felt from the music, motzart was part of the song lists!  These girls know how to have fun!  Great acting skills too!

Thank you Team Tupu girls for another awesome day Celebrating the ARTS in Room 8!

Our Happy Place Drawings- A work in progress

We will keep on working on this until every bit of white is filled with lines and pictures.

I wanted to know the boys a bit more so we sat side by side and doodled little drawings about our happy place.  While we worked we were able to talk and to ask questions about each other's drawings.  We also found a lot of commonalities within our own stories of our happy places!  Let's see where this whariki of happy places will look like for our face to face Team Tupu classes!


Tahi the Tuatara

First Drawing -  Drawing using step by step shapes, add in texture.  Next step layer it with colour!

A work in progress!  Thank you my talented group of artists- All boys today!

Love how Angel just keeps on going... that's the one!  Today Angel has learned to colour in the whole grid rather than the part of a whole.  This is good learning.  I will go over this at our google meet tomorrow.

Polevia's Work

Today Polevia has picked up his hardpack and has made a good start on his booklet!  Thank you to Ms Heather for organising this wonderful work for our children.  Polevia has started on colouring in his Tuatara for a Christmas competition.  Good work!







Thank you parents for making sure your children hand in their work to be marked.  I will go over how to do this in our google meets. 

Thank you to Ms Melino for teaching us over the past 2 weeks.  Today is Ms Melino's last day with Room 8.  


 

Ms Melino's Work

Ms Melino is a student teacher in Room 8.  She had to teach 3 lessons in a row to a small group- Tito and his brother Christopher.  She had to come up with a google slide for her lesson, a jam board to teach her lesson and a follow up worksheet for the children to complete.  Thank you for your fantastic work!






Ms Melino's full control group

This was Ms Melino's last online lesson for her full control in Room 8.  She has taught in our regular 12pm Google meet, but we felt she may get a better feel for real online teaching if she taught a smaller group.

It worked out really well!  She learned lots and the boys also got to learn more in a one on one setting.  Thank you for your work boys and Ms Melino!





Jeremiah's Work

Children have been writing a persuasive letter to the USA to give Olohega back.  We have decided to use the SEEL paragraph to write our ideas sentence by sentence in order to build a paragraph.

Children are writing a letter to the USA to persuade them to give back Olohega to Tokelau!



Angel and Joslin's Learning

I will go over this work at our google meeting girls.  Thank you for trying your best.  Thank you Vitolia for sending me the video of where the girls are stuck at.  It's OK we've got this!  We can do it together at our google meet.  All of these worksheets I go over at our google meet.  I show the children how to insert the grids and colour in the fraction with the paint bucket.


Wow... I am blown away with the amount of work you guys are sharing with me via gmail, photos of the class page work and just lots of emails asking for help to further clarify the work.  Well done Room 8.  Keep up the good work and keep on sending in your work to me!


Thank you so much fanau for rowing our learning waka together!

Thursday 28 October

Thank you to all of the parents who have helped their children to send in their school work from the class page, plus the extra work in their google drive.


This part of the learning process is really important, as I want to mark and comment on your learning as it informs me my next teaching and learning steps.


12pm Google Meet photo for today!


Angel's Work

Angel is learning how to operate the paint bucket.  She is also becoming more aware of the whole.



Tito's Work

Tito and Christopher have been turning up to Ms Melino's 10pm Full Control Google Meet Lessons

Christopher's mic and screen doesn't work on his school Chromebook, so they use their mum's phone for the google meet, so they can see us and use the Chromebook to do their work on.  These kids are amazing .... they just make it happen in order to learn.


Jeremiah's Work

Jeremiah completed work from our class page.



Polevia's Learning

At the start of every google meet, Room 8 write for 5 min and share our writing with our class before we start our lesson.



Room 8 is learning to write a SEEL persuasive paragraph.  We are trying to persuade the USA to give Olohega back to Tokelau.  The children write one sentence at a time together as a class on google meet, to model how to complete the task.  Then they are given the follow up worksheet to complete in their own time.
