In Takahe we have been learning to represent numbers between 11 - 19 in as many ways as you can using the tens frames and write number stories to match them.

We are lucky to have our new school built and we are getting ready to move to our school soon.
In Takahe we have been looking at how we can design the seating and looking at arranging tables and chairs in our Takahe class when we move into our new school.

Noticings and Wonderings
We can see patterns all around us. Patterns are everywhere.
We use our eyes to notice and recognise patterns, we use our brains to think and wonder
Look at our noticing and wonderings about a Hiapo pattern -

WELCOME BACK to TERM 4
Fakaalofa atu from Takahe
A repeating pattern has a consistent element of repetition. Can you figure out the repeating pattern in the Niuean Hiapo below. What patterns do you see in this Niuean Hiapo ?
If you were to make a Niuean paogo (table mat) with the patterns like below-

In the first week of holidays we organised Maths program for children. This was run by special Maths teachers from Massey university to support children with Maths learning. It started from 3rd October till 7th October. Children had so much fun and they loved coming and learning to solve problems in Maths in a more collaborative way.
Including others, team work, asking questions to clarify, justifying answers, explaining using Mathematical representations, learning to solve maths problems using more than one way has been a major focus during these sessions. This has helped children develop communication and participation skills in Mathematics.
Thank You to Mr Lou Reddy our Principal and Martha Dyder from DMIC to make this happen for our children.
A few clippings from the program, children and parent feedback is put together in the video below -

We use mathematical representations to solve, explain, cross check, justify and sometimes self correct too
We have an orange tree in our school that has so many oranges on it.
- How many people can we share 15 oranges if we give 3 oranges to each person ?
- How many people can we share 20 oranges if we give 4 oranges to each person ?
- How many people can we share 30 oranges if we give 5 oranges to each person ? Explain using mathematical representations

Aidan and Lucas love to count. On a plate they have 4 cupcakes.
If there were 2 plates, how many cupcakes would there be altogether?
If there were 5 plates, how many cupcakes would there be altogether?
If there were 9 plates, how many cupcakes would there be altogether?

Kia ora Everyone,
Welcome to our learning of whole numbers in Mathematics this term.
We are all excited to be back and we will be learning to solve multiplication and division problems.
We will be unpacking the Maths language, talk about the Maths problem, share ideas on what the problem is about and what it is asking us to do. We will draw pictures, use materials and use different ways to solve the problem.
Our goal is to explain the strategies we used to solve problems, giving reasons to justify our answers.
Visit our blog to see our exciting Maths learning in action!!

Welcome back to term 2. Looking forwards to an exciting term as we focus on Fractions and Statistics.
Encourage children to look for fractions around us and how we use in our everyday lives. We will be posting a problem every week. Encourage your children and support them to solve them collaboratively. The most important thing is to encourage your children to give it a go and try. It's Ok when they make a mistake, as we learn from these mistakes.
