Rangoli Patterns

Today we talked about Diwali.We talked about what Diwali is and it is celebrated. Ravleen, Viraj and Sahib were very keen to help teach our class about Diwali and share their own experiences around the celebrations.

We then had the opportunity to create our own Rangoli Patterns. Take a look at our creativity:

R1EN & R1MC’s Mystery Seed

 

Yesterday, we read Grace’s Mystery Seed during our library visit. The story was about a girl called Grace who found a seed. She planted the seed to see what would grow.

Miss Matthews brought in a mystery seed for the class and we spent some time predicting what will grow, just like they did in the book. We touched, smelt, looked at and listened to the seed and made some predictions.

I think it will grow a strawberry – Sara

Watermelon – Jed

Smells like a flower. I think a rose. A red one – Vidal

Avocado seed – Cooper

Something flat because it feels really flat – James

A rose because it smells like a rose- Emily

Lemon – Kuch

Apple because it smells like apple – Awan

It smells like a pear- Ajang

It smells a little like chocolate- Yasha

It’s definitely a pumpkin. It smells like a pumpkin – Dimi

 

We then collected our data and used a graph to represent our predictions.

 

We decided to plant our seed to see what will grow. We discussed what a seed needs, to grow:

We need soil. Soil is like dirt – Ajang

We need sun- James

Water – Kalil

Learning Numeracy Through Kuyangani

“We counted the fish because we wanted to see how many. Because you can’t have too much only a little bit. I counted yabby and put it into my learning journal. In the classroom I showed my book to everyone from my class and we did the fish and used the TV and made a graph”- Ethan

“We counted the fish. because if we didn’t then they might get lost and in a different order. I counted and in my learning journal I put the numbers. We shared in the classroom and made a graph. There were lots of turtles and the yabby” – Jordan

 

Birds Eye View

Today we looked at Holy Family from a birds-eye view and used directional language to describe where different buildings and places are, in the school.

Take a look at our class reflections:
