# Magical Monday August 21 – Week 5

Good morning all! Welcome to Week 5!Ā

We have nearly already hit the half way mark of the term! This week Mr. DePalma is away from school as he gets his wisdom teeth out – good luck Mr. D! We welcome Mrs S. into our learning space for the week and are looking forward to some new and exciting learning.

#### SCHOOL PHOTOS ARE TOMORROW! All students required to be in full winter uniform! As our classes have their PE lesson tomorrow, they are encouraged to bring their sneakers for the lesson and then change back into full school uniform for the photos.

This morning we reflected on our weekend specks of gold on our individual blogs! Some of these included;

• Miss B – Watching Port win a close football match!
• Paul – Sydney beating the Crows!
• Trinity – Getting my apple watch!
• Aaliyah H – I was sadly sick the whole time š
• Monica – We had cake for my step brothers birthday!
• Justin – I finished my running animation!
• Mason – I scored two games!
• Lara Ā – My test results came back at Viet school.
• Alex – I scored a goal! 1-0
• Jonas – I watched the Man U Game!

### Our Literacy Rotations for this week are as follows;

Comprehension is a BTN story based on Robots! This requires students to use their critical thinking skills to view and comprehend a story.

Reading Response Activities are open ended and responses can be completed in any forms the students wish, using their 100 languages.

Our Word Task for this week extends on last weeks Homophone work.

Our Guided Reading Sessions with the teacher are a time for students to practice their reading aloud skills, focussing on aspects like expression and fluency!

Today and throughout this week we will also extend our learning surrounding Volume and Capacity. We will be engaging in various different investigations to strengthen our understanding of formulasĀ and how to findĀ specific features.Ā

As a group we re-capped what we knew about volume and surface area including how to calculate each.

This afternoon we began work on a new and exciting task…

## DESIGNING OUR OWN APPS!

We put on our ‘Steve Jobs’ hats and got thinking of what we already know!

There was some interesting and creative conversation surrounding our apps!

Alex – “My app will have different columns and then you can check any single sports score live.”

Christian – “We will stream games live!”

Jess – “Ours will have lots of different Asian Cooking recipes”

Mason and Victor – “Like BTN said this morning, in the future there will be a lot of robots. Our app will let you control the robot from your iPhone.”

Jonas and Nathanel – “Ours will be like NFL Live, there will be different codes and sports and results but we want it just for American Football.”

Annalise – “Ours is like a mixture of all different social medias.”

Vu – “Ours is like an eskimo rush! You have to get away from them.”
