Welcome to TRUSTING Thursday!
Fairy bread seems like an easy snack to make doesn’t it? Bread, butter, 100’s and 1000’s right? NOT RIGHT! This morning Miss Battifuoco asked for some help in making a fairy bread snack. You would think the steps are quite simple? She followed instructions from students perfectly and we learned that the words we use and the detail we give matters. Get the bread and put butter on it. This meant that the loaf of bread had butter on the outside of it!
Miss Battifuoco took all of the ingredients out of the bag and then asked if someone could guess what we might be making.
- Nevada- Fairy Bread
What would be the first step?
- Annaliese- Get the bread out
What would be step number 2?
- Maddox- Do butter
- Andy- Put Sprinkles
- Iris- I think after you pulled out the bread you put butter on it
- Lara- You open the sprinkles and put it on the bread
It was at this point the children realised that something was wrong……….
- Anna- Say the amount and where to put it
Who thinks they can tell me what to do from the start?
- Dion- Put the bread on the plate
- Dion- Put one piece of the bread onto the plate
- Krystian- Open the lid of the butter and put it on the table, grab one knife and spread the butter on one piece
- Angok- Spill some sprinkles
NO NO NO NO NO, yelled all the children……….
- Raf- Pour a little bit on the bread,
- Raf- Sprinkle the sprinkles on the bread
- Eva- Cut the bread with the knife into halves
- Holly- Eat it
We changed our language and the words used a little to create a slice of fairy bread. We completed our own procedures for the fairy bread and a partner then used our procedures to make one. Most of us had success! Some of us worked on using more detailed language and action verbs to make sure we ended up with a perfect fairy bread piece!
We played a big class game of FAIRY BREAD TAG. We were either given the label of bread, butter, 100’s and thousands and had to dodge the hungry taggers in the middle.
PRAYER – BUSHFIRE PRAYER
We discussed the Bushfires occurring in NSW at the moment and how grateful we are for those who are risking their lives to try and battle the fires and save peoples homes and animals.
CHRISTMAS CAROL ART
In preparation for HFCS Christmas Carols night, today we completed some art work that will be shown when we are on stage. We will be singing two songs, ‘I am Here’ and ‘Silent Night’. Our provocation today was to create a piece of art to be shown in an iMovie during Silent Night. Some of us used our black books to draw whilst others were interested in creating art work using their laptops.
MINDFULNESS – READING AND TYPING CLUB
NUMERACY – ADDITION
This afternoon we practiced our vertical addition. We used our growth mindsets to give all tasks a go!
