We are Making Music!

Room 25 has been very busy for the past two weeks making music with our bodies and found objects. Today we have been exploring ways we can write our music down so we can remember it and make it longer. Ms Gaston made a video of 4 children's beat ideas. Look out for more music on our individual blogs next week!

Maths Practice Tests

This term Room 25 has had a competition to see who can make the most progress in their Maths Basic Facts tests. Every morning when the children come to school they go on the class site and practice their choice of Maths test.
Ms Gaston has just counted up how many times each of us practised our Maths this term. Everyone who did at least 20 Maths tests have received a certificate and chocolate bar as an end of term prize for their hard work.
We would like to say a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Marius for doing 87 Maths tests at school this term. He is so fast with his answers he is really hard to beat!
We hope you enjoy and share your chocolate with your family Marius. Happy Holidays!!
