Room 8 is winning Silver at the Mathletes halfway point!!! Going for Gold!!!

Last night Miss Williams and Ms Trow found out that at the halfway point of the MathSeeds Mathletes Competition, Room 8 is coming 2nd!!! That’s out of 255 schools from Australia and New Zealand!! Ms Trow is absolutely blown away and super excited!!!

We are going for Gold!!! Keep it up team – parents, as discussed at the PaCT meetings last week, if your child can get online at home they can compete there too!!! 🙂

We’ve also been working through the Mathletes Competition book in class completing maths word problems, direction and measurement puzzles, and more cool Olympic based challenges.

Let’s rock this Gold Room 8!!! 🙂

“Go Team New Zealand!!”

As part of our Olympics 2021 focus, we made very cool headbands (with glitter of course!) to support our awesomely fabulicious Team New Zealand.

Go Team New Zealand!!! 🤗🤗💖
