We had so much fun during maths today.
We were learning about different ways of measuring distance. We decided to measure the distance using a metre ruler.
We designed and made our own paper planes. We then had to fly them and see how far they went.
Next we recorded our data and then presented the data using a bar graph.
Lots of learning took place!!!
Today we have been using language to describe chance events
(more likely, less likely, probably,
could happen, could not happen,
• identification of common events as:
o certain (eg the sun will set today)
o likely (eg there are likely to be
clouds in the sky today)
o unlikely (eg it is unlikely to snow
o impossible (eg the sun will not
This week we have been learning to tell the time. Please provide opportunities at home for your child to tell the time.

This week all grade 1/2s will be learning about ordinal numbers.
Ordinal numbers are used to designate the position (or order) of objects. While the words for the ﬁrst, second, third and ﬁfth ordinals differ from their numerical equivalent, the remainder of ordinals simply add the “th” ending to the original number word (fourth, sixth, seventh, thirteenth, etc.).
Knowing the ordinal numbers helps a child understand and communicate positions or placements of people or things. With just a little practice, ordinals will become an automatic part of your child’s vocabulary.
