Tuesday 25th September 2018 – Week 10 Term 3

Welcome to terrific Tuesday 🙂

We began our writer’s workshop session with a mini lesson on writing a complete sentence.

We learnt that a sentence includes:

  • A capital letter

We played a little game called ‘Is this a sentence?” before the children continued writing their own books, focusing on writing full and complete sentences.

LEARNING REFLECTIONS – LITERACY

We used our learning power of ‘mindful agency’ to:

  • reflect on and celebrate our growth and learning in literacy
  • to plan and goal set for areas we would like to improve.

INVESTIGATIONS

Today children continued with their investigations, incorporating prior learning from this term. Examples from today included:

  • Building hotels, restaurants and shops using money and food group knowledge
  • Researching and following procedures to make paper toys

This Friday we celebrate the Moon Lantern Festival. Our classes are hosting assembly and we will also have a shared lunch to celebrate the day. We ask that you please bring a plate of cultural food to share.

COME READ WITH ME

We began our day with some independent and group reading. This gives the teachers a chance to read 1 on 1 with students.

WRITER’S WORKSHOP

Before continuing on with your story making we had a mini lesson about apostrophe’s. We learned how to use them and when it is appropriate.

Together we added apostrophes to a few sentences that were missing them.

  • I found Sonnies jumper on the floor.
  • Chelseas bag is in her locker.
  • The boys basketball are in the basket.

We then used this new learning in our Writer’s Workshop time!

RELIGION

How do you think the world began?

  • Eva – Because Jesus made the water, trees and life
  • Raf – It used to be just dark and it didn’t have sun light. It was just nothing
  • Dion – Because God made land and he made like animals and stuff

  • Kim created a drawing of how the world began
  • Nhu and Natalie created a creation story book

LIBRARY

In our library lesson today we read the book ‘It’s a Story, Rory!’ This story was interesting because it had a narrators voice and also a side line of writing, showing us how to create our own successful books. Things like characters, plot, setting are all so important!

  • Sampann – On the clock there is a number that is 3, 6, 9. The 3 means 15mins and the 6 means 30mins and the 9 means 45 minutes
  • Nevada – The small hand is the hour hand and the big hand is the minute hand
  • Ash – There is a red hand that always goes around and around and the big one turns and turns
  • Akemjot – If it is on 1 that means 5 minutes. After 2 there is like white dots that mean 1 minute

What can you tell us about what you have learned?

https://theshow.com.au/showbags-rides/showbag-ride-wish-list/

  • Ashvarn is creating a Fortnite showbag

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.

INVESTIGATIONS

  • Jed showed some of his classmates a Kahoot that he made at home. The Kahoot was all about Pokemon.
  • Maddox and Sam made a zoo using the blocks.
  • 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.
  • Neisha and Ruby continued creating their shop.

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.

Jake: My speck of gold was playing Baldi at lunch time with Akemjot, Sampann, Sukman, Maddox and Justin.
