There was so much learning happening this week and we were very excited to try some new things with our awesome friends the Smart Seahorses of room 10.
This week for Maths the Minions and Seahorses were learning about measuring items for length and using measuring words when we talk or write. Both classes were able to use their past knowledge to use words like big, small, short, tall, long, wide and narrow to describe objects they were constructing.
Check out the awesome photos of our maths lesson and feel free to ask us to help you measure things at home.

|Malu, Ngaau and Junior: Building towers and talking about their length and height. I really like how you used your measurement words boys.|
|Who can build the highest?|
|James traced around several different feet and was talking about which was the longest and which was the shortest. He could even put them all in order!|
|Timoti and Bailey building a town- "The roads need to be long to go around our tall tower."|
|Building houses for Minion teddies- Hoa and James see how tall their door must be to fit teddy inside.|
The Minions want to say a big thank you to the Smart Seahorses for coming and joining in the learning with us. It was a fantastic day and we would love to work with you more.
