First thing in the morning, 5DP & HN went to the hall and played a fitness game called Golden Child.
Everyone was split into two teams, the shooting team and the running team, one team tries to shoot goals into a basketball ring while the other team ran around the hall. If a runner made it to the other side it’s called ‘home’. The shooting team can get the runner out by shooting a goal. Each team worked hard and not only enjoyed it but used perseverance. We played 3 rounds, one of them being Teachers VS. Students, which the students won.
After fitness, we all came back to class and had fruit as Mrs. Higgs read us the class novel. We then worked in pairs on a religion task on the resurrection of Jesus. We analysed Matthew, Mark, Luke and John’s individual entries on the case and highlighted main points like who and what was in the story, when the story took place, and key points of the entries, when the lesson time was over we went out to recess.
Once recess ended, we all came back to class and played a game called number empire. We split up into pairs and would vs our partner or another pair and would try to create the largest number using our place value columns. We would generate a random number and place that number in the units, tens, hundreds or any of the thousand columns, including thousands, ten thousand, or hundreds of thousands. Whoever made the largest amount using the randomly generated numbers won the crown!
For the rest of the time between recess and lunch we worked on our HASS project where we need to explore our own or another culture that is popular in Australia and create a poster, website or any other way you can present your work in a creative way in order to get more people from that country to migrate to Adelaide. We needed to write about the cultural places of that country that you can eat at, where you can celebrate the main religion, or any other things relating to the task’s main point, which is to get people to migrate to Adelaide.
These two resources could help with research:
After lunch we spit classes and 5DP individually worked on Maths Mini for 10 minutes, this included students working, their times table skills. Some students used the game ‘hit the button’, or if you had known your times tables up to 12, you could do lattice maths, which is an easier way of doing long multiplication.
At the end of the day students went to their sports day teams’ individual areas for chant practice so they could learn the specific chant for cheering on their team mates on the occasion of sports day this coming Thursday and to encourage your team mates as one!
