Each week the Pakiaka team have a maths rotation based on the strand we are covering on class.
We are looking at Measurement this week. Room 10 were measuring how far their 'rocket launcher' would fire their bomb!
We used a metre ruler a white cuisenaire rod and a pen. The pen was used to fire the cube. In pairs we had turns firing our rocket and recording our measurements down.
Room 10 had a competition who fired their cube the longest distant.
Pakiaka were lucky enough to do screen printing in our rooms with the help of Melanie.
Step 1 -Firstly we had to design a Koru pattern to screen-print onto our T-shirts. Step 2 -We drew them in pencil on to card and then went over them in vivid. Step 3 -We attached the Koru patterns to a mesh screen and we used PVA glue to fill in the gaps outside of the Koru design. Step 4 Once the PVA glue had dried overnight we then used Indian Ink to cover the Koru with the T-shirt underneath. Step 5 - Fashion Parade to the school!
