GTS Matariki Festival 2023



Yesterday GTS had hosted a Matariki festival. First thing we had done as a whole school was watch the performances in the hall. We had 4 schools come down to perform their kapa haka group. The schools were Glenbrae, Glendowie primary, Best start and Pt England. Once we had watched all the amazing performances we had went off to our classes to welcome the family’s to the learning we had worked on the past term. We had various activities hosted around the school in each class. There was also various food items sold around the school. 

This week for maths team tui are learning to identify different types of angles in a circle. We had used a protractor to help us draw the angles which we had found easy. When we had finished naming all the angles we used canva to create a poster so we can share our learning.  In the end i had fun learning about the different angles that can be found in an angle .

Measuring shapes

This week for maths we are working around the topic of lengths or distances . For today we had decided to start off easy and measured a shapes perimeter. We had to join in a group of three and my group consisted of Mokoia, Pasimati and myself.  For this we had to draw a shape that closed. To measure this shape we had used flax that was thin enough we can bend it around the curve. Once we measured the length we had ruled out the distance we had created. The measurement we had rounded up to was 34.5 cm and 345 mm.

The password game

This Morning in Team Tui we had played a game called password. The game is where four people gather together and partner up. Two people will sit down while their partners at the back along with the rest of the team will be able to see the word and the partners will have to give one worded hints for the persons to guess the word. When they put the hints together and guess the word hey swap around and do the same.
