Duffy Role Model Assembly

Today we had a very special visitor by the name of Rachel Wharerau, (stage name Temara Star) visit Ohaeawai school for Duffy role model assembly. We were very privileged to hear her sing an original song called Dream-Catcher which was about encouraging people to follow their dreams.

We can't wait to get our Duffy books later this term!

Place Value Maths

Recently we have been learning face value, place value and total value and using place value equipment to help us with maths problems.  Below is a picture of us working in pairs to add place value equipment together.

Here are some pictures of what we needed to be able to understand before we could to this activity above.  

"We have enjoyed using the place value equipment as we can see what the numbers look like".
