We have started to get into our amazing novel for this term, 'FLOODLAND'. We have only read the first chapter and are already hooked, eagerly awaiting to find out what happens to the main character (Zoe) when she sets sail on her own in the dangerously wild sea. To help us sympathise with Zoe and the gang members- that desperately want to set sail with her, we freeze framed the first scene and focused on how our actions and expressions helped to retell the story.
We had lots of fun in Numeracy this week (21.1.2018), we were learning how to multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1,000. We really enjoyed going outside and drawing on the playground; it helped us to visualise the numbers getting bigger or smaller by moving them along our giant place value charts.
Who says maths can't be fun?
Topic- Tsunami Experiment
We have been learning all about the causes of Tsunami's; looking at how they are formed, what natural disasters might induce a Tsunami and the devastation that may occur, as a result of a Tsunami. We built and designed our own landscapes using: soil. newspapers and cardboard and then tested the resistence of our landscapes when a Tsunami was created in our boxes. It was safe to say there were lots of muddy, watery uniforms. Sorry parents/ guardians, but we did have fun!!
This term, we have been focusing on the skills that are required for sequencing and syncronization. We worked in pairs to generate a routine that involved: a starting position; a roll; a travel; a running jump and a finishing position. Then, we demonstrated our performance to the rest of the class.
