Here are todays home learning activities:



Friday Home Learning Activities

Today was FUN FRIDAonly Lavella and her family completed todays activity and it looks like they had lots of fun. Lavella's mum said that her and Lavella won against Lavella's brother and Aunty.


Friday - Week 6 - Home Learning Activities

Do you have a cupboard with some containers in it? Can you make a game with them? 

Do you have a box of containers like this at home? Ask Mum or Dad if you can use them to play a game?

Set the containers up on the ground. Use as many different sizes and shapes as you can.

Make up a points system for each container? Think about which one gives you most points and which ones would be hard?

Allocate the points to each container. If a container is big should it get more or less points? If a container is far away? If it is small? Agree with your players!

Find something to throw into the containers. Do you have a ping pong ball? What else could you use? 

Agree on a space to “shoot” from. Then agree who should first and what the rules should be. Should you keep getting points as long as the ball goes in? Who will keep the score? Is the first person to 100 or 200?

Ready set go! Oops i missed the first one. Never mind - I’ll get it next time. Whose turn is it now?

Perfect! Time to add my score to my score card. This is a great game for practising adding numbers together. If you need help ask your older brother or sister to help? Or maybe YOU can help a younger member of your family?

My paper ball works just as well as a ping pong ball. How creative can you be? What can you use to make a small ball out of?

Let’s think about our younger players? Can you think of a way to include them and make it achievable for everyone??


Feel free to do some yoga. Yoga is good at helping us learn to concentrate and listen.



Thursday Home Learning Activities

Tuesday - Week 2 - Home Learning Activities - CRT

Malo ni Room 7! - Hello Room 7! I hope you are all well. 

This week is Tokelauan Language week. Here are a few greetings in Tokelauan that you can practice with your family.


Ko na fuainumela - Numbers

Can you count to 10 in Tokelauan? The language sounds very similar to Samoan language, Try counting to 10 in Tokelauan. Watch the video below to help you say the numbers in Tokelauan. Then see if you can write the numbers and draw objects for each number in the box like this:

 

1= Tahi

 

 * 

 

2= Lua


OO

3=Tolu


4=Fa

5=Lima

 

6= Ono

 

 

 

7=Fitu

8=Valu

9=Iva

10=Hefulu

 

One of my favourite stories from Tokelau is called ‘The safe place’. Listen to the story. Where else do you think would be a good place for the hen to lay her eggs? Draw a picture and write a sentence where you think this safe place would be. Click on the red  button below to go to the link. 

The safe place 

Designing your own stamp. These are stamps that represent Tokelau. They are pictures of coconuts, fish, breadfruit and Taro. Can you design your own picture of your own stamp? Try to watch the video above from Tokelau and see if you can find something you think might be a good design for a Tokelauan stamp.

 

Here is a video of Tokelau. Watch the video and find out two things about Tokelau. Write them down and send them to your teacher.


Last task for the day. Breathing. Find somewhere quiet to sit and close your eyes. Imagine you are sitting on the beach in Tokelau. Take 5 deep breathes in and blow out slowly.  What can you hear? Imagine you can hear the waves splashing on the beach. Take another 5 deep breathes in and blow out slowly.


We have a Zoom meet today at 11:00am. Here is the zoom link:
