Writing about patterns

After our visit to the senior school we did some writing about the patterns we liked. These included patterns around the home, patterns around the school, patterns we made and patterns we were wearing...

Patterns continued...

Following on from our pattern work earlier in the term. Today a group of Autahi students went to Mahutonga to check out the tessellation work they have been doing. Many of the students liked "the bright colours."

Doodle for Google

We found this online on the Google home page. It is a school competition so we thought we could enter. This is a competition for years 1-6 as you need to have the words GOOGLE in it, (it will have to be in capitals). You need to make it thinking about If I could travel back in time…
You are only allowed one entry per person so you can make different designs, but you have to have one to enter. You will be disqualified if you use more than one per person. You will also be disqualified if you use any logos or copyrighted images. The judges will choose 20 people from each year group and might win 10,000 dollars worth of technology equipment for their school.

Please get entries to Nicola before 14th August
