Welcome to our class blog!

We are a class of year 7 and 8 students who attend a semi-rural school on the outskirts of Tauranga in NZ. We are excited to share our experiences and learning at Tauriko School. Check back regularly to see what we have been up to. We have a load of fun in our class and would love to share it with you!

School House Rock - Counting by Fives


If a bag of gummy bears has 5 bears in it, how many bears would be in 5 bags?

Show us which strategy you used to work it out and then make up a problem for the next person to solve about gummy bears. Remember that the bags will always have 5 gummy bears in them as we are learning to skip-count in 5s, use our knowledge of repeated addition and 5 x tables to solve multiplication problems.


  1. 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 75 80 85 90 95 100! how fast can you count that?

  2. right.

    you can not!
