We started a new Numeracy inquiry this morning that incorporated our work in area and perimeter. Students were given a problem based on the block.
Students finished their practice workshop on irregular shapes that was started yesterday so they were prepared for this inquiry. As seen about there were three modifications to the task to meet the needs of individual students. Students worked hard during the double and most divided up their shapes and started calculating perimeter and area.
Students then split into classes to go to Spanish and Music. Whilst there the other group continued to finish their HASS presentations, spent a lesson on their Numeracy inquiry and spent some time on their RE task. To finish the day students went out for some fitness after we discussed our intentions for the catholic identity day on Friday.
We ask if students could bring in some photos (digitally saved) or artifacts that represent their religion, could they please do so on Friday. We are looking at creating a digital iBook that represents all of our students faiths within the classroom.
