They included signage on the screen and had their customers write down their order for the colour friendship bracelet, ring or pom pom they wanted. In the corner, they were busy making them whilst their customers sat on chairs and waited for their order. It got so busy with orders, they had to close the shop!

  • Neisha and Ruby were making blueberry ice cream and describing how it is made

  • Deakyn was recording and telling his friends about how to make pancakes – “you buy a pancake bottle, put water in, then pour it into a pan, let it fry, then flip it over. You can put custard and strawberries ontop”

  • Jake was creating ‘bread diagrams’ on the laptop and said: “first you need wheat to make flour, then you need flour, water and oil and yeast to make the bread. The yeast makes the bread go bigger”

NUMERAC Y – PERIMETER

Perimeter is the distance all the way around something.

How can we measure perimeter?

We then went outside to explore the notion of perimeter around the oval!

You get to the top in the lift. The highest place is on 88. I thought I was falling down. I could see a building next to it.

Thanks for a great day everyone!!

Monday August 27 – Week 6 Term 3

Hi all! Welcome to a Sunny Monday!
We hope your weekend was filled with many specks of gold!

2TD CLASS PRAYER

We began our day with a special class prayer focussing on Character Strengths. We sang a song together and shared our thoughts.

What do you think is your character strength?

  • Sampann – Collaboration because I work well with other people
  • Akemjot – My character strength is creativity because I create stuff everyday
  • Jake – Dear God, thank you for making my character strength love because I love my family. Amen.
  • Mary – Thank you for making me kind to other people. Amen.

SHARED VIEWING

Our focus this week is a short clip about how bread is made. Our focus the past couple of weeks has been procedures and how things are made before moving into our Writer’s Workshop.

CHARACTER STRENGTH – APPRECIATION OF BEAUTY

  • Rehat – It means like accepting other people
  • Sampann – Appreciating everything
  • Jake – You need to appreciate other people

We discussed that there are 3 different types of beauty:

  • Physical beauty:
    Something you hear, see that you are in awe and wonder of.
  • Skill or Talent:
    Something that inspires you to achieve you own goals.
    Something you admire.
  • Moral Beauty:
    Makes you want to be more loving, caring, a better person.
  • We went on a walk around the school on the hunt for things we find beautiful and sketched them in our visual diary…

Rehat: I like the whole school because there are some special things we like to look at. I think it’s a bit rude to not just look at things that don’t look nice because they are there to try and make the world beautiful in some way.

Rafael: I saw a duck under the tree. It was beautiful because we don’t really often see ducks far away from the lake.

Akemjot: I drew the blossom trees, the plants, the sun and my friend, the goal post, the rocks, log park, the fish farm and grass. I think the blossom trees look beautiful because they have nice colour on them.

Mary: I saw some of those big birds with a long neck and they looked very pretty.

Sampann: I saw a blossom tree and I draw the blossom in my picture. It is beautiful because it does nice colours.

MATHS NUMERACY

Measurement Provocation – Can you measure your height in 3 different ways? One way must be centimetres.

  • Noah, Alex, Jaiden and Andy continued exploring procedures and created their own YouTube play buttons.
  • Holly, Ann, Jasmine, Nathaniel, Kiziah, Keren and Llana made cornflour slime.

SPECKS OF GOLD

Lucas: My speck of gold is having investigations. I made a ‘Kahoot’ about measurement.

Aiden N: My speck of gold is playing in the sandpit with Alex, Sonnie and Noah at recess. We were digging for treasure and we made a big, big city.

Jasmine: My speck of gold is when I was playing chase with Joseph, Ann and Bella and Holly and Joseph was trying to catch us.
