Term 3

This term we have so many new students in Room 1 that have started at Sylvia Park School.

Here's what we have been learning about in Room 1.

In Maths we have started to use the iPads to help us recognise our numbers.

We have also been learning to order our numbers from 1-10 some of us are ordering our numbers up to 20!

For inquiry we have been talking about things that are fair and unfair and how that makes us feel?

We drew and decorated faces that show different feelings.

Stay tuned to find out what other exciting things are happening in Room 1 this term.

Planting with Miss Naidoo

We have been learning about fruit and vegetables. 

Miss Naidoo helped us to decide what is a fruit and what is a vegetable?

When we cut them in half we could see if they had seeds!

Fruit has seeds, vegetables have no seeds!

We then got to plant our own seeds!

We look forward to seeing our plants grow into fruit or vegetables.

In Room 1 we have been learning about measurement.

We talked about who had the longest worm and who had the shortest worm.

We came up with some other words to describe our worms: fat, skinny, long, short, wide, tall.

We have also been measuring animals with string.

We measured the length of the animals.

We had to make sure the knot was on the nose and the rest of the string went all the way to the end of the tail.

We measured the width of the table. Aldrich is trying to count up all the teddies to see how many he had to use.

Before we even started our tasks we guessed (estimated) how many teddies or blocks we would use.

We measured the length of the table using blocks. 

Jayshal is counting the blocks. There were 97 so he needed some help from his teacher to count all the way up to 97.

We have really enjoyed learning about measurement.
