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.

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….
Tonights homework included documenting 20 ‘things’ that we need to survive and then placing them into the following 5 columns;
1: Love and belonging
Have a wonderful evening,
Ché, Sara and Nadia
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.

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.
