4/5S had a wonderful first week back with 5 students achieving mastery. Congratulations to Rebecca, Jemima, Keely, Zanetta and Gordon. All students settled back in beautifully after two weeks break and were straight into learning. Here are a couple of things we got up to this week:
Final touches being made on our paper mache animals.
In science we are working on a unit called The Utility of Things. We learnt the difference between objects, materials and their properties. These are our initial understandings.
All students received their Term 2 Speaking and Listening Task note on Friday. As I know that students will be busy preparing their speeches over the next couple of weeks I will not be sending home the formal homework grid until Week 6. In the meantime for homework I would like students to prepare their speeches, complete nightly reading and as an option complete spelling tasks that I will continue to upload each week.
Thank you for a wonderful first day back 4/5D! It was great to get back into the swing of things, you were such hard workers as always. We had a great day of learning about Mass in Maths and about the distance between and size of the Sun, Moon and Earth in Science. For those eager to get started, homework will begin next week!
I’ll leave you now with some pictures of a couple of little friends I made in Japan 🙂
Thank you to my beautiful class for this lovely poem and flowers presented to me at assembly this morning. Have a wonderful last two days of school and a fun but safe holiday! I will see you all next term 🙂
