WALT explore shapes that tessellate

In our first session for Geometry we are exploring shapes that tessellate.

In this session students explored shapes that tessellate or repeat to cover the plane without gaps or overlaps.

We used different types of 'tiles' to create our paths.

WALT make observations and write about them

Today we used the Science trolley to make observations about bugs and rocks. 
We used the visualiser to zoom in on the bugs and rocks to get a detailed picture. We then had to save the pictures to a flash-drive and then transfer them to our emails. Next, wrote down the observations we made and posted them to our personal blogs.
Here are some of the photos the students captured using the visualiser.

Tane is reading a story while listening to the audio. This is helping him read the trickier words.
It is also helping him to hear how to read using expression.
