MHP Olympic Day!

We had a wonderful day celebrating the Olympic Games at MHP.  The day started with an opening ceremony parade where each Learning Zone shared the team they had been supporting and learning about.  We had Norway so had made Norweigan viking helmets, swords and shields to wear!  After morning tea it was time for the games to begin!  We were split into teams of mixed year groups and rotated around 20 different activities for the rest of the day.  We got to have fun doing running races, soccer skills, throwing rubber chickens, playing tug of war and moonhoppers just to name a few!  At each station the teacher would record in our team book who had shown the Olympic values the best and real medals were given out to the top 3 for the school at assembly that week.  What a cool day!

Fraction Penguins!

As part of our learning about fractions, we decided to make fraction penguin pictures.  We had to create all the body parts from fractions of a circle including halves, quarters and eighths.  It was a fun way to help us learn!  We think our fraction penguins are pretty cool!

Congratulations to Tanya!

Well done to Tanya for winning the Excellence Award for LZ7 at assembly this week!  Tanya earned her certificate for her wonderfully positive attitude towards learning and always working so hard in class.  Tanya, you are a great role model for others in LZ7 - keep up the awesome work!

Olympic news!

The 2012 Olympic Games are well underway and last week we were given a team to support and also learn about.  LZ7 has Norway so we are starting to learn a little bit about the country as well as their Olympic team!  Watch this space to see what we do!
