Measuring lesson

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!!!

Inquiry Topic for Term 2 – Day/Night

This term we are learning about day and night.

 

Clip explaining day and night – An explanation of day and night on Earth. Using a model/animation of the Earth and Sun, students are shown that while it is day time on one side of the Earth, it is night time on the other side. The rotation of the Earth is then shown, explaining the mechanism of day and night.

 

Fill a bucket

Thank you Miss Salem for lending us your book.

Through simple prose and vivid illustrations, this heartwarming book encourages positive behavior as children see how rewarding it is to express daily kindness, appreciation, and love. Bucket filling and dipping are effective metaphors for understanding the effects of our actions and words on the well being of others and ourselves.
