Measurement – perimeter By Hannah & Tiffany

This week we have been learning about Perimeter, today we had a new task for perimeter and the task was to make shapes like triangles, squares, rectangles etc. Example 6cm and 4cm and we had to put the numbers together and find out the perimeter.

“that you only need to have two sides to work out the perimeter” Sebastian

“I found out the perimeter could be different on any shape” Jaida

“I found out that perimeter is the outside of the shape” Maddie

“we found out the perimeter is that you can make different shapes and you can tell what it is by different shapes” Dalena, Erimina, Tammy & Ann

“I found out that at the start it was hard but once we started learning it more it became more easy” Annie, Angel & Sukhi

-check our privacy settings on apps to ensure it is not set on public view

-think before we post a comment or an image

-only be friends online with people we physically know

-know the people and organisations who can help when we need it

-Police officers are in our community to help us and keep us safe

HASS National Anthem by Mathewos and Kirra

During class we started learning about the national anthem during our HASS lessons. We had discussions as to what it was about and what the words meant. We also looked at the Kaurna Acknowledgement and what this represents to the Aboriginal and Kaurna people.

Today we began to put an iMovie together and recreate the national anthem with different images, explaining what it means and what it represents.

Assembly Post By Erimina & Tammy

This assembly performed by 6/7B and 6/7SM and was about ‘The Story of the Feather.’

They showed the story in their little way and also showed how the CLARA learning powers work. At the end they did a little dance to give a little laugh. What we both thought of the assembly was that it was very entertaining to watch and creative.

‘Here is the class showing how they’ve made their own dream catchers’

‘They are acting out how the feather blew away in the book’

‘Funny entertaining dance’

Dice doubling by Harriett and Amy

Today for our maths warm up we did a dice game, the point of the game was to practice our doubling skills and warm up for the next task.

“this dice doubling helped me make the shapes easier” Angel

“This task was very easy for me, and it really helped me with the next task” Tiffany

“Its helped me very much with my times tables” Luka

“I think this task would help me when I’m outside of school, like when I’m at the shops or something” Thao

This task was helped a lot of people with the next task, perimeter. We all really enjoyed this task as it was very easy and difficult for different people.

Laptops and the calendar app!

Afternoon all,

This afternoon we will be trailing the use of your Childs ‘calendar’ as a means of documenting and recording homework tasks that need to be completed.

It’s hoped that your child can work towards documenting and prioritising their time at home and use the calendar to organise what is due and when!

Just as a little heads up….

-FYI-

Tonights homework included documenting 20 ‘things’ that we need to survive and then placing them into the following 5 columns;

1: Love and belonging

2: Freedom

3: Power

4: Fun

5: Survival

 

Have a wonderful evening,

In Kindness,

Ché, Sara and Nadia

Number Skills and Perimeter, By Anna and Sebastian

Today for our classes numeracy task we learnt about perimeter!

We could get a partner or we could work by ourself, most of us worked with a partner. Our task was to get two dice and roll, we would then have to write the width and the length of the square or rectangle. For example, if we rolled a 6 and a 4 we would do a 6 as the width and 4 as length so it would be a 6 x 4 and the perimeter would be 20 because 4 + 4 + 6 + 6 = 20cm.

“I learnt how to add up area ” Jaida

“I was measuring the length of what I rolled on the dice” Tammy

“We were helping each other” Amy and Harriett

Next time in maths we will be learning how to calculate the area of a shape.

Laptop workshop Tuesday 27th February 9am

Hi everyone,

 

Tomorrow (Tuesday 27th Feb) from 9 – 10:30am the school will be running another family workshop about how to use the student laptops. We may cover areas such as:

 

  • Programs available on the laptop
  • How to save and retrieve data
  • Upload photos
  • General rules about laptop use (i.e. not eating or drinking near devices, appropriate games)

It will be a very practical workshop led by the families and their questions. We are also asking the students to come with their families so students are involved in teaching and explaining ideas to the adults.

 

The workshop is free and will be held in the Cafe.

We hope the workshop will help you and your child benefit from the use of their laptop at school and at home.

 

Kind regards,

 

Ms Pinneri, Mr Murray and Ms Pettet
