Good afternoon everyone,
We would like to extend a welcome invitation to family and friends to come and celebrate Whole School Mass tomorrow, which 5HN and DP will be hosting. If you can make it we would love to see you at 11:20 am in the Hall.
This morning, some year 3 students came to our class to show us their posters for a fundraising event for Guillan-Barre Syndrome. They will be selling cupcakes for $1, and cookies for 50c. Make sure to bring in some loose change to buy some delicious treats tomorrow at recess time!
With a change of events, we went to Mass Practice before working on our numeracy Fraction Workshops.
We worked on our Fraction Workshops (due this Friday). We worked on our Fraction Golf, which we did with our partners. Some of us worked on our ‘Fraction Avenue’, where we have to make a street of houses with particular features; this task can be done in Minecraft. HN also did this after lunch.
Before recess, 5HN left their laptops at the Spanish room. When 5DP worked on their numeracy, 5HN went to Spanish. In Spanish we worked on our FIFA World Cup mascots for any country.
For our next lesson, HN went to Music whilst DP started their first Guided Reading lesson of the week. They switched books with HN; DP reading what HN read and HN reading what DP read last week. Because we had a relief teacher for music, we played a game of Musical Statues and then a game called ‘Hey, Mister, who am I?’.
After lunch, DP went to music and HN continued on with Numeracy. We finished the session with Ava F and Anyuat sharing their Minecraft streets, showing us how they had followed the task criteria carefully, as well as how to take effective screen shots of the finished avenue, ready for marking.
Then we had a class pack-up and listened to Mr Clark, 5DP’s relief teacher, talk about his family. He told us about his two sons, his wife and grandchildren. He also talked about how he liked teaching because he saw schools as bright places. He talked about his son who lives with him and his other son, Ryan, who lives in America and plays basketball, just like Mr White’s son Isaac.
Once Mr Clark finished his stories, we had free fitness to end the day.
Hope to see everyone at our Mass tomorrow! Have a great night.
