Today in Numeracy we had two new provocations to try.
The first was the Thousands, Hundreds, tens and ones game.
The player has to throw 5 beanbags into the buckets then record the number they made.
The four buckets each represented one of the units of ten.
The students then recorded their number.
The second was using dice and timer write as many addition sentences as possible before the sand runs out.
Some students chose Numeracy using the laptop, some played numeracy games.
Lots of NOISY learning today.
This morning Investigations were Buzzing. We observed many Learning Powers at work.Including leadership with students teaching other students how to make stress balls for Mission Week.
Students also displayed collaboration working as a team on their chosen provocation.
As always creativity as students lead their learning.
Mason and Zac looked at loose parts. They then used the internet to assist them find where and what the part was.
Mason “So this was a part of lots of stuff like snipper holes and part of a computer”

Today we visited The Fish Farm with Mr McCarthy.
We noticed many changes since we last visited.
“There were fish in the tank with Max” Anna
“There was some more plants in the black containers and fish tanks have been moved.” Sam
” There were more plants.” Deng K
“There was a big waterfall where Max was.” Meitraeyi
“There were some new fish.” Stacey
We then had a chance to feed the fish and Max the turtle.
The Baramundi were especially hungry today.
After that we did some planting in the garden. Mr McCarthy showed us how to seperate beetroot seedlings and plant them.
We then ended the day with a fun fishing game.
What an AMAZING time today!
Today the year 2’s teamed with a Year 3’s to try yesterdays experiment.
We found that some of the experiments were successful and others were not.
So as Scientists do, they come to a conclusion why it did or didn’t work?
We had a discussion with our partner scientist about our results.
Tomorrow the students have an opportunity to try again if they would like.
Charlise Manseerat and Lolla
“Our experiment worked we put a hand on each side of the bag and shook the bag. The whole bottom of the bag was open”
Aiyden and Phillip
“The science project didn’t work because when i zipped the bag only a bit of the tissue dropped and the rest was squeezed. Make sure the tissue doesn’t get stuck”
Tyron and Mason K
“It didnt work because when I shook the bag it didn’t pop up. Next time we need to shake it more”
Enjoy the learning with us!
Getting ready to start…….
