Maths- Algebraic Patterns

Yesterday we were 'tuning in' to our new Maths strand- Algebraic Patterns

Here we are having a go at making our own repeating patterns. All Miss Macklow said was, "I wonder what you can do with these materials, using your mathematical thinking."
Look at what we came up with.

Te Reo- A Haka Ma (the Maori alphabet)

Today we started to learn the Maori Alphabet/ A Haka Ma.
We had lots of fun learning the sounds and decided that we would like to have the video up on the Blog so that we could practise at home.

Here we are having a go at singing A Haka Ma.
