# 15/10/19

Today we started off our morning in the Village with inquiry-based play. One “Neighbour” group worked with Mr.Bartold on the laptops and another “Neighbour” group engaged in a numeracy provocation with  Miss Matthews.

Numeracy Neigbours with Miss Matthews

Today we looked at collecting data using smarties. Each pair was given a packet of smarties and used their 100 languages to determine which colour was the most popular colour in their packet of smarties. We loved comparing our data  with each other to see whether everyone had the same colour.

“Green is winning because we have 1, 2, 3 browns, 1, 2, 3 blues and 1, 2, 3, 4 green. So green wins” – Declan

“Orange is winning because I see more orange there” – Oliver

“We have more blue because there are more”- Isabella

“We’ve got 5 purple, 3 yellow and 3 blue. Purple is winning” – Nahom

We’ve all got 42 smarties”- Declan

Investigations: Come Play With Me

Welcome back to another term full of learning in The Village. We hope everyone enjoyed their break and were able to spend some time with family and friends! We have not missed a beat in The Village today, diving straight back into a busy morning of investigations. It was fantastic to see the children as active participants in their learning as they engaged in provocations tailored to meet their interests.

Fitness: Boot camp

This morning we decided to join forces for boot camp! It was a fun way to challenge our body and minds into completing a workout.. which left no prisoners. We got our heart rate up with jogging on the spot, sprinting, star jumps and push ups.

Numeracy: Graphing

After recess we explored data collection and graphing. The Village gathered and collaborated to investigate what the most popular colour in the Village is.

We then completed our own data collection as we recorded what coloured cars drove down Shepherdson Rd. Jordan shared, “silver was the most popular”. This provocation saw the children very engaged and enthusiastic!
