CLARA- Collaboration

What is collaboration?

Krish: We work together and we learn

Angus: Learning new things

Ishaan: You can learn whatever you want

Angus: Learning new things from other people

Krish: The teachers teach you and then you learn new stuff

Teamwork and learning:

Ayda: Teamwork is we work together, we don’t be mean and we have to work together to help people

Kaleb: Teamwork is when you don’t what to do and someone helps you

Jasroz: Teamwork is your friends help you and then you write

Janpreet: We help other peoples

Linda: Teamwork is if someone doesn’t know how to make something the other person, makes it for them

Jayden M: Teamwork is someone who helps you, like a friend

Matthew: Teamwork is when you do something that you cant do alone and you work in a team

Anna: Teamwork means you help other people

Jayden B: Teamwork is when you have a partner and its teamwork

Ishaan: Teamwork means you can work with someone else

Crista: Teamwork is a friend that you can help to be happy

Kayden: Teamwork is where you work together and they can help you

Cooper: Teamwork means you can work with any one

Saj: People needs teamwork to help each other

When have you helped someone, or worked with someone, during our learning and in our classroom?

Angus: When we were in the making area and we were making and other people couldn’t make something so I helped them

Shirley: In the making area I saw Sonarita making some cupcakes and I helped her

Portia: Working with Anh and all my other friends and we were cleaning

Eziekiel: Help someone read

Does it always have to be helping?

Angus: No It could be different things

If we were collaborating together what would that look like in a picture?

Johnny: Helping people play soccer

Kaleb: Me helping someone else

Ayda: Helping Anh reading

Krish: A person helping all his friends

Portia: Anh, Ayda and I playing, and singing

Janpreet: Working together with Krish 

Collaborating is learning together, learning with others

The children then made their own pictures about collaboration.

Math Focus- Chance

Today we bought together our learning on chance with a more explicit lesson. The children explored chance by rolling different numbers with a dice.  They had to make a prediction about what they thought was going to be the outcome. They then had 20 rolls of the dice and had to record each roll. The children then had a go at putting their data into a column graph.


Chance: Identify outcomes of familiar events involving chance and describe them using everyday language such as ‘will happen’, ‘won’t happen’ or ‘might happen’ (ACMSP024)

Data representation and interpretation: Choose simple questions and gather responses and make simple inferences (ACMSP262)
Represent data with objects and drawings where one object or drawing represents one data value. Describe the displays (ACMSP263)

Jesus and the Children

Today we shared the a passage  from the Bible  ‘Jesus and the Children’

The children reflected upon this  passage and then expressed their understandings using art mediums.

Krish – Jesus wanted the kids to come close to him but the disciples didn’t understand and they said to the children don’t go to Jesus he is to busy.

Ishaan – Jesus is a good man to children and he likes them a lot.

Jayden M – Jesus is kind to children.

Johnny – God wanted the children to stay protected.

Kayden – Jesus looks after us and always helps and he shares the loves to everyone around the world even if they are different languages.

Ayda  – Jesus made the children so children Jesus loved them.

Carter – Jesus let the children go wherever they wanted to and he also hoped they had good days.

Anh – Jesus always want all of the children to be safe.

Crista – Jesus loved the children because Jesus helps us and loves us very much.

Kaleb – Jesus likes us because he wants to take care of us and help us do stuff.

Tyson – Jesus wants the kids to be safe and not in danger.

Jayden B – The kids needs to be looked after by Jesus because they can’t look after themselves.


Math Rotations – Chance

This week we used our math block to do a math rotation. We set up 4 identical activities on each side of the room. These included:

  • Dice Tally- rolling the dice and recording the outcomes. Talk about the outcomes.
  • Favourite animal tally- predict which will be the favourite, ask and record the outcomes. Check predictions.
  • Flip tiles- predict the outcome of 20 flips, flip the tiles and record the outcomes. Check predictions.
  • Coin flip- predict the outcome of 20 flips, flip the coins and record the outcomes. Check predictions.

In each of these rotations the language of chance and the chance of the different outcomes was discussed. For example there being 6 sides on a dice, 2 sides on a coin, 2 sides on a tile as well as the amount of different animals for people to choose from when picking their favourite.

Today we introduced the children to Pronouns.

Firstly we revisited – what was a noun – person, place or thing (we can touch it feel it or take a photo of it)

Krish – A pronoun is a word like we she.

To avoid continually repeating the the same nouns, we use other short words to take their place. These short words are called Pronouns. Some pronouns include I, you, we, he, she, they.

Explore differences in words that represent people, places and things (nouns, including pronouns) (ACELA1452

After watching the clip we talked about the different pronouns and drew pictures to represent these.

The children then had the opportunity to write sentences using pronouns.

The Artist Who Painted A Blue Horse- 100 Languages

Today we read the story- The Artist who Painted the Blue Horse.


The children then reflected through their 100 languages about the story. Here is some more information about the 100 languages from our blog.

Reggio Emilia

Here is how the children reflected through their 100 languages.

Writer’s Workshop


Today we did a recount of our weekend. We looked at the words Saturday and Sunday and the children had to think about what they did on these days. I wanted them to think in detail and give me information about what they did.

For example: On Saturday I… On Sunday I…


Today our focus was writing a information text.

The children were encouraged to write about an animal and tell me as much information they could. The children need to remember to start their sentences with capital letters and finish with a full stop. The writing experiences also reinforced the children knowledge of sentence structure, as they reread their sentences to also check that they made sense.
