We walked to Paetiki shops to buy fresh fruit. We were in 4 groups and each group had $10 to spend. We wrote shopping lists and looked at the specials flyer to see how much things cost. It was fun spending our money. Some of us overspent so we couldn't afford to buy everything so we had to share fruit with others. It was a great life skill to learn. 033, 18 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/800161 The Human Brain https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/800159 Students in Room 8 are discovering lots about the Human Brain, how it is made up and what the parts do. We are discovering how important it is to feed our bodies the right food for brain development. This has led us to looking at good food choices. Here is a model of the brain we made from a paper bowl. It shows that the brain is responsible for all our thoughts, feelings, actions and memories. 033, 18 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/800159 Term 3, week 4 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/799799 033, 14 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/799799 Term 3, week 3 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/798998 032, 8 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/798998 Term 3, week 2 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/798329 031, 1 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/798329 Term 3, week 1 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/797607 030, 25 Jul 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/797607 Term 2, week 10 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/795038 027, 4 Jul 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/795038 Sharing our singing https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/795036 027, 4 Jul 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/795036 Term 2, week 9 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/794365 026, 26 Jun 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/794365 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/794135 026, 25 Jun 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/794135 Term 2, week 8 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/793694 025, 20 Jun 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/793694 Week 7, Term 2 - using the sentence train https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/793510 After Whaia Jodie had completed some professional development on teaching sentence structure, the children were able to use the train to form sentences about one of their interests.
