English: We have been making connections as we read our books. We are trying to make connections between our stories and our own lives. We are also trying to make connections between books. Maybe one book has the same setting as another book we have read.
Maths: We are using lollipop sticks to add two digit numbers together, making sure that we have to change numbers over nine if they are in the units column. We are also adding nine to numbers to improve our arithmetic speed. We did surveys in other classrooms by asking students what their favourite hobby was and we collected the results and created charts to show the data. We discovered that video games are very popular.
SESE: We are learning about Australia. We have found out some interesting facts and information about Australia. We learned about their animals, weather, flag, history, art, sport and music. We were lucky to have some Australia items in our class this week.
