Tug of war.

We did this problem during maths today. We had some amazing mathematical discussions about this one! The dragon can't use his fire breathing skills to his advantage and the fairy godmother can't fly away!  Can you solve this one?


In the first tug of war, four frogs on one side had a tie with five fairy godmothers on the other side.

In the second tug of war, one dragon had a tie with two fairy godmothers and one frog.  The third tug of war was between one dragon and three fairy godmothers on one side and four frogs on the other side.
Who won this tug of war?

Today we had Judy come to school for the day and help us all make an ANZAC poppy. We talked about the significance of the Poppy first and the parts that make up a poppy.
They all look fantastic!

Nelson Museum

This afternoon we visited the Nelson museum to look into World War 1 and our history and involvement in it. We looked at morse code, the use of animals in the war, the Tapawera military camp set up and different artefacts to do with the war.
