Tuesday week 8
Numeracy and fitness:
This morning we started doing numeracy by looking at time. We combined this learning with fitness by using sand timers to find out how many activities we could do before the sand timer stopped. Some of the activities included running, hopping, push ups and star jumps.
When we returned from fitness we further explored how long one minute is. We discovered an activity such as tieing your shoe lace takes one minute whilst driving to school takes long. We also estimated how many hops we could do in 1 minute. We then recorded our discoveries
What can you do in one minute?
Lina: read a book
Navya: write a sentence

How many hops do you think you can do int 1 minute?
Abel: 1 trillion

As many of us were very enthusiastic to share events from our weekend we decided to do some writing about “On the weekend…”.

Our investigations today involved activities such as building the Royal Adelaide Show out of blocks, dinosaur lands, lego and lantern making. At the end of the day we also shared our yummy, healthy treats that we made yesterday “Banana bites”
