Yesterday we learned about volume. We had 3 different boxes and we filled them up tightly with cubes. Some of us thought the short fat box would hold the most, others thought the tall skinny box would hold the most. We worked hard to fill the boxes and count the cubes. In the end the tall skinny box held the most cubes (251 cubes).

In Room 8 we like to use our imagination. One of our favourite Literacy Centres is the 'Create Table'. Robbie used his time at the Create Table to make an aeroplane. Can you see all the different parts?
Oh, and if you're wondering where the propellers are you might be looking for a long time. I was told that this is a jet engine plane, not a propeller plane....silly me! Well done Robbie for working so hard on this project.

Every Thursday our reading buddies come, from Room 7, to spend some time with us. We usually read but sometimes we play maths games or do other different fun activities. We're learning about different people who help us at school and our reading buddies help us with many different things. Room 8 would like to thank all our buddies for their help. THANKS BUDDIES, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!
