Reading- come read with me, this morning we did some great reading with our peers and some helpers from 4G.
It is really important the students keep reading at home as we get further and further into the term we want to make sure they are ready for year 2.
SHAPES – 3D
Today of focus is edges, faces, corners.
We explored 3D shapes and exploring their properties.
We got into three teams, corner team, edges team and face team. We went on a hunt around the room to find these three properties on different shapes in the classroom. We went on a hunt.
The students did such a good job at applying their knowledge and then sharing what they learnt back to the class. Many of the students were very confident to come up and share what they had found. We all got to learn from each other about faces, corners and Edges.
Today we spoke about information books and what an information book can tell us. We talked about needing to be experts in the area in which we are providing information on. The students then brainstormed information about own own school.
Suk: There are three toilets.
Van: At school we teach and learn and we have
time to eat and go on the playground and have
time for investigations. Our class has sport
Oliver: So if your parents are late we have to go to OSCH.
Olivia R: you can’t wear casual if it is not a casual day. We wear our school uniform.
Avleen: We have time to
go to library on Wednesday.
Rowena: We have a hall,
a playground, a Mass centre
and a library.
Felix: We learn Spanish here
Khushi: we have a fish farm
Thuy: we have a sandpit.
Nina: we have a hall and oval.
Kimaaya: We have a canteen near the oval.
We then challenged the students to write and record the information they new about the school. We noticed the students came up some really interesting information about the school.
Maybe tonight they can share with you what they came up with.
How is ice made?
Today we gave the students the provocation…. How is ice made?
Would we just find ice just on the street?
Firstly we wanted to see what the students know about How is ice made?
Caroline: Ice is made of water water and you put the ice in refrigerator and it turns to ice.
Ella: I think it is made water and then you freeze it.
Blake: Ice is from the arctic.
Thuy: Ice is made by water and you put it in the freezer and it becomes ice.
Meklet: ice is made by water by wind and snow.
Vi: Ice is made out of water and then you freeze it.
Avleen: Ice is made out of water you put the water in the freezer.
Joydeep: Ice is made by water the fridge.
Indi: From an Antarctic because it is so cold there ice is made.
Suk: Ice is made of water and you put it in the fridge for 24 hrs and when you wake up and when you see there be nice fresh ice.
What happened to the ice when we took it out of the freezer?
Olivia R: It gets smaller and smaller and it turned into a liquid.
Rowena: I got smaller and after 15 minutes it melted.
Joydeep: When you get the ice out of the freezer and you bring it somewhere hot and it melt.
Khushi: when you get the ice and jiggle it it melted quicker.
Aveleen: when you got the ice out it melted.
Why did it melt?
Javieria: It turned to a liquid because ice is slippery.
Felix: Because the ice is cold and the sun is hot.
From here we will investigate solid, liquids and gases and explore these concepts further with the children.
