RAA Road Safety Program

Today we attended the RAA Road Smart Program. The children explored;

Walking safely and passenger safety

Students will be introduced to the STOP, LOOK, Listen, Think message. They will be made aware of the importance of choosing a safe place to cross the road and the different types of crossings. Students will also learn about the importance of being visible to other road users and how to be safe passengers.

We will be sending home an activity book for you to share with your child and revisit the learning. Each child also got a reflective bag tag for their backpacks.

Math Rotations

As we continue our exploration on time the children explored the rotations below.

  • Months of the year- Order and write
  • Teacher guided- half past times
  • Beat the clock- Timer activity- can you draw a detailed farm in 3 minutes

Math Focus- O’clock times

Today we focused on o’clock times. We want the children to be able to read and write o’clock times to the hour. The children each had 12 clocks and had to record the o’clock times from one to twelve o’clock. They then wrote it in word form and as well a digital. This gave the children 3 different options in being able to recognise the time.

CLARA- Hope and Optimism

Hope and Optimism is seeing yourself as someone who learns and changes and makes progress over time. The opposite if this is being ‘stuck and static’.

Jasroz- I hope I can help people. Hope means I want to do it.

Tyson- Hope means someone might win the game or won’t.

Krish- Hope means never give up.

Angus- Hope sometimes means when you can try to help someone and you can say to them are you ok do you want me to help you?

Ayda- It means when you mum and dad go to work you might say I hope you have a good day.

Matthew- Hope means you might wish for sometime.

Talyn- Hope means never give up.

Angus- Hope means when you say to someone and your mum might say I hope you have a good day and I hope you might make new friends

Jasroz- I hope I can get an iPhone 8

Anna- I hope you have a good time at work

Johnny- I hope I can get a soccer ball

We opened dialogue about being hopeful and optimistic as a learner and what this might look, feel and sound like. We talked about also having a positive mindset and always trying out best.

Math Rotations- Clocks and Time

Our rotations for this morning were:

  • Teacher guided days of the week.
  • Digital timer challenge- how many things can you draw in 3 minutes, watching the time count down.
  • Puzzles- matching written times to analogue clocks
  • Laptops- ABC Splash- memory match of digital and analogue clock times

ACARA: 

Tell time to the half-hour (ACMMG020)
Describe duration using months, weeks, days and hours (ACMMG021)

Here are some of the children’s reflections:

Dion- On the laptop I had to match the clocks and the timers

Johnny- We wrote the days of the week

Josh- When the timer started I drew as many soccer balls as I could

Amelia- On the laptop I had to match the times with the pictures

Krish- We matched the clock times

Writer’s Workshop- Exclamation marks

Our book of the week this week is Alexander’s Outing by Pamela Allen. Within this story there is the use of exclamation marks. As we read the story we pointed out where the exclamation marks were used and why. 

The exclamation mark  is a punctuation mark usually used after an interjection or exclamation to indicate strong feelings or high volume (shouting), or to show emphasis, and often marks the end of a sentence. Example: “Watch out!”

1JM ran out of time after mass practice to write today but instead we played a oral language game. I gave them statements, sentences and questions and they had to shout out what we would need at the end. Either full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

1MR wrote a descriptive text about a duck and then we revisited ‘exclamation’ learning with 1JM in the afternoon.
