Library Week 9!

In today’s library session we focussed on listening for meaning. Amber, Janjeara and Gem kindly read Blue Sky Yellow Kite to the group.

Together we discussed what the moral of the story may be and if there was any Character Strengths;

  • Keerat – ‘Well in the end of the little brother gave her a kite so maybe it is teaching kindness.’
  • Gabriella – Honesty and kindness to her brother

After reading we individually borrowed our books for the week and filled in our Premiers Reading Challenge sheets (last day today)!

FriYAY September 22!

Introducing… The SKELETAL System

Time to dissect another body system!

Introducing…. The SKELETAL System! 

Together we had a look at our prior knowledge surrounding this system. It is always interesting to see where students interest and knowledge lays;

Together we viewed this video to support our thinking! 

We then added to our knowledge base; 

Vu –  Bones protect our organs

VT – They are made out of calcium

Akash – When bones break they are put back together from tissue and cells

It was then time to openly and individually investigate!

Peer Procedure Writing

Today after recess Miss Moise visited us to support us in some procedural writing. We had a re-cap over what a successful Procedure includes; 

Our task was to then write our own procedural text. Next lesson these will be swapped with a partner and they will use the procedure to create what you have written about. *You will need to bring the materials/ingredients for it so think carefully.*

We have some amazing, creative ideas flowing!
