Week 4

It's Learning Celebration Time! The children are very excited to share their learning with you this Wednesday afternoon/evening. They will be practising hard on Monday and Tuesday, and sharing with our friends in Mrs S's class on Tuesday in preparation. We hope you enjoy your time in our classroom!

After Humpty's tragic accident last week, the children predicted whether Humpty could be put back together again.

Because most people thought the change was temporary they have made a plan to try to put Humpty together again. They decided to try taping him together... that ended in a sticky mess. This week they plan to beat Humpty, freeze Humpty, heat Humpty and boil Humpty. Sounds like it is going to be a hard week for Humpty!
We will also be looking at dissolving later in the week. Stay tuned for some more great thinking and predicting.

We are continuing with our Nonfiction chapter books this week. We have written our introduction and a chapter for Habitat, Diet and this week Body and Predators. Their books are looking amazing! Feel free to take a sneaky peek at your Learning Celebration.

The children are making great progress with their reading. Thank you for all the patient listening and supporting you do at home with their readers.  We have a class full of little readers who are engaged and working hard during reading time! This week is our last week focusing on retelling.

Our inquiry into Place value has been creating quite the buzz. The children are getting skilful at counting our base ten blocks by ones and tens. They are eager to try out hundreds even and when someone pulls it off successfully there is an eruption of cheering from the class! Keep practising counting by 10's on those long car journeys. It is paying off!

PE : More throwing and catching this week.
