Over the past week we have been learning about the Anzac’s and have been using writer’s tools to record notes, keywords and ideas. We have had a number of discussions where we have shared what we are learning and this has helped to build an image in our minds to really understand what happened at Anzac Cove on April 25, 1915.
Today was a day of celebration! Using our word webs as a tool for writing our students were able to experience success in writing independently about Jack Simpson and his famous donkey, Duffy.
We had some students write sentence after sentence as they chose different words from their web to include in their writing and we also had students writing paragraphs by planning the sequence of words from their web.
Tell us how the word web helped you with your writing.
This week in maths we learnt about a cheeky, impatient sheep called Eric.
Eric jumped two sheep when the shearer took one to shear.
We found out how many sheep got shorn before Eric.
We used counters and toy sheep to act out the story and get the answer.
We wrote our answers in a table and saw a pattern. The pattern was in three’s.
Then we made a pictograph with little sheep.
I liked how we used the toy sheep. Emily
I liked acting out how Eric jumped over two sheep at a time. Chloe
I liked acting it out on the floor and being a sheep. Dakota
I liked drawing the pictogrpah and acting it out. Jemimah
