Today we brought together our learning of the Rainbow Snake story and the children listened again to the story and then reflected in their black books about the story. They had to think about what the Rainbow Snake created and demonstrate this in both written and pictorial forms.
Watching the above numberjacks episode prompted discussion and questions about fractions. The children were introduced to new mathematical words, processes and understandings. After reflection the children continued to demonstrate their understandings of fractions using a range of materials including play dough, pencils, puzzles, loose parts, white boards and lego.

Today for writer’s workshop we worked on building a narrative. A narrative tells a story. They have a setting- where and when, some characters- people, animals or objects and a plot- events that happen in order.
We wanted the children to think about what happened first, in the middle and then at the end. As a group we discussed these things before moving off into our writing groups.
