Literacy – Advertising
The students had fun today working on their radio advertisements. The aim of the task was to try and promote and persuade listeners to buy an everyday classroom item. After spending time typing and crafting their scripts, many students went about recording their voices reading it, and we enjoyed listening to their efforts. Mr Pearce read out some of the scripts and highlighted the importance of using punctuation so that he could determine what kind of voice he needed to use.
After recess, 5HN worked on their multiples in Maths Mini. The task was to record the multiples of each number from 1-12 onto a 12×12 grid. This took a while and most students are still working on this. In doing so, they are finding that many of the numbers have common multiples, as well as short cut ways to find the answers to times tables, by using the table like a coordinates grid. Going across to 6 and down to 5 gives the number 30. 6×5 = 30.
In Numeracy, the focus was on consolidating students’ understanding of not only the difference between perimeter and area, but the process and steps used to calculate each.
After completing a warm up and discussion as a class, students were asked to complete the following:
Most students are still going with this exploration but here are two that have finished:
At the end of the day we sang Happy Birthday to Zahra, who turned 10 today. She shared lollypops with the class. We hope you have a lovely night with your family, Zahra!
