We are all pattern seekers by nature. Students are currently noticing patterns in algebra and expressing them as functions!
Transformations are an important part of spatial sense and geometric reasoning. There are 3 types of transformations: flip, slide and turn. We have been exploring these with shapes, letters etc. here are some pics…
Using photo booth for cool flip/ symmetry effects
It’s a dance off!!

more student responses to come…..
What a lovely service organized by Ms Pinneri and carried out by our double class. Here are some pictures from this morning…
Students now have the opportunity after our play session to choose an area for forces and gravity they want to investigate by experiment.
Here are some topics some students have come up with so far. Students designed experiments for students’ own questions they wish to explore!
Back in term 2 we related decimal numbers to fractions and even percentages. We compared them by placing them on a number line too. Today students represented them by using base 10 blocks we are all familiar with. The problem with base 10 MAB blocks is that they only go as small as one unit. Which is equal to a centi-cube. so what do we do?
We re name the ones we have. Students investigated and renamed one thousand block as the new unit (or ones), the old hundred block is now a tenth 1/10, the old ten stick is now a hundredth 1/100 and the old unit cube is now a thousandth 1/1000.
