Cupcake Card

20111026-021508.jpg
We started back at school today after two weeks holiday. Term 4 already and only 7 weeks and 4 days before the summer holidays.

In Mr Fawcett’s cubby hole in the Staffroom he found an envelope from overseas. It had come by aeroplane because it had a sticker that said “BY AIRMAIL”. Inside was a card with a cupcake drawing on and… it had jewels glued on it. It was from a school in Northern Ireland, all the way on the other side of the world. We found Northern Ireland on our inflatable globe.

When we looked in the envelope there were more jewels! We think that they might have fallen off the cupcake card when it was on its way here. We’re going to glue them back on. You can just see in the picture that Lucas (front left) and Jaaron (front right) are holding some shiny jewels in their hands.

Now we’re going to make a cupcake card for them and post it all the way to Northern Ireland.

I found this advert on the Internet. Where would you go? What would you see? Who would you meet?

Nature by Numbers

Awesome geometry, Fibonacci and Golden Sections in nature.

We have been exploring 2D and 3D shapes in Room 11. We also looked at the patterns in numbers and times tables; and found the Fibonacci sequence. This video shows how some of the shapes and numbers appear in nature.
