Here is a snapshot of our learning from Weeks 5 and 6!
Reading and Writing
In weeks 5 and 6 we read a book called Animalia because we were learning about Alliteration. It is a sentence that has the same letter at the start of the words. An example is: my mother made me mash my Mini m&m’s on a Monday morning. Miss Murray gave us a letter to write an alliteration sentence with.
We have been leaning about imagery. Imagery is when some one describes a setting and you need to imagine it in your mind. You can write about anything you want. We had to write a description of a setting and someone in our class had to draw the picture in our head and we reflected on how detailed our description was.
In maths we learnt about time and chance.
For time, Miss Murray drew a clock with paper and it said o’clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past. Then we drew the same clock and wrote o’clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past in our maths books. We used mini clocks and the clock in our book to help us. We learnt to tell time in quarters and in 5 minutes intervals. We also learnt where the hands on the clock go!
For chance and probability, we did an activity called the Aitken Creek Primary School Cup. It was like horse racing because we did it on Oaks Day. We had a sheet that had numbers and we had to have a dice. We needed to roll the dice two times and add the numbers together. We needed to cover the box that had the answer. We wrote scratched on horse number 1 because you cannot get a total of 1 when adding two dice toether. 8 won the most as it was one of the most likely totals from adding 2 dice together.
