Cry Baby Moon

We are learning about writing Narratives.  We read the modern Maori story "Cry Baby Moon."  We all wrote a retelling of the story and created a vivid, pastel and dye piece of art to go with it.

Money Week

We were given a $200 budget to do our grocery shopping for our family for one week.  We worked in small groups searching the countdown website for bargains and collating our own lists.

Here are some of our discoveries...

Healthy/Gluten free options are more expensive.  However if you were only buying necessities and no “treat-type” food you could still shop for healthy foods within our $200 budget.

Sometimes specials are a trick with the original price being only 10¢ more!

49¢ = tricks you thinking its cheaper but really its 50¢ eg.$14.99 looks better than $15.00

Supermarkets use the Swedish Rounding System.  Any number under 5 is rounded down and any number over 5 is rounded up.

$3.23  = $3.20
