Term 3 Week 10

These are some of our finished 3D dinosaurs.  We traced them, we painted them, we cut them out, we stuffed them, we stapled them and we named them.

This week we had a liturgy to celebrate Mary's birthday.  Instead of having cake we made biscuits with a cross on them.  Yum!

This week we learnt about verbs.  A verb is a doing word. Can you guess what we are doing in these photos?

This term we have become dinosaur experts!  We have been learning about facts and opinions.  We made our own non fiction book full of facts about dinosaurs.  Today we went around to five different classes and taught them all about dinosaurs. It was awesome.  Everyone thought we were very clever!

Today is the last day of term 3!  We hope you all have a wonderful holiday.

Term 3 Week 9

We worked together to put our sight words into alphabetical order.  That means we were putting them in order from a to z.

We did a word sort.  Miss R gave us a page of words.  We had to work out what  was the same about the words and sort them into groups.  Then we highlighted the sound that is the same in each group. 

This week we have been learning about halves and wholes.  A whole is one thing and a half is when you cut a whole into two equal parts. 

We read a book about fractions.  We covered a whole biscuit with butter and then we put sprinkles on half the bisuit.  If you didn't make the halves equal then you didn't get the sprinkles, luckily everyone did it right!

We love blogging every week so this week Miss R decided that we should all have our own blog.  We all got to type our first post.  You can see our blogs at this address, 

Some of us have already been busy blogginat home and posting comments on other peoples blogs.  What a great way to see what we are all doing.

Term 3 Week 8

This week we have learnt that there are different types of words.  We have been learning about nouns.  A noun is a naming word.  We made a poster of people, places and things.  We also named lots of things in our classroom and around the school.

This week Miss R gave us a new book to help us spell tricky words.  It is called My Useful Word Book.  It is a bit like a dictionary but it has room for us to write our own words.  We can find words because they are in alphabetical order like a dictionary.    There are also some words at the back that have been put into groups like, body parts, colours, sports, family and days of the week.

We have been learning to make and read o'clock times. We used some iPads to play some clock games and we used our own clocks to make different o'clock times.When the big, long hand is at the 12 it is o'clock and the small hand tells us what hour it is.

We are making a dinosaur. We are going to make it 3D so we have to draw and paint 2 sides of our dinosaur.  Our dinosaurs are going to be so big it is going to take us awhile to finish them all.

On Wednesday we had the junior primary sports fun day.  Below are some of our recounts of the day.

Our Sports Carnival By McKale

On Wednesday it was the sport carnival.  It was at the oval. We played a running race.  We played a flag race.  We played a running ball race.  Then it was lunch time and we went home.  It was fun.

Where's My Teacher?

On Monday this week I was down in Perth at a training course.  I didn't tell the children that I was going to be away.  Mrs N had the children come up with a crazy idea of where I might be or what I might be doing.  Some of these sound way more fun that what I was really doing, but some of them don't!  I will let you guess which ones I might like to do and which ones I wouldn't.

Term 3 Week 7

We watched a Constable Care puppet show about caring and sharing.  It was very funny.

This week we made a book week display.  We chose the book, Dinosaurs Love Underpants by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort.  It is a very funny fiction story about how the dinosaurs got wiped out.

We made our own dinosaurs and made them underpants to wear.  Then Ms D made a big rock to put them all on.  We are going to take it up to the library today so everyone can see it. 

Today we had a book week assembly.  We all dressed up as characters from a book.  All the classes paraded around the assembly so we could see all the cool costumes.  We all clapped when the people came around.  The teachers did the assembly item today.  It was about being champions of books.

This afternoon is Fun Day.  The year sixes have set up lots of different activities for us to try.  Keep your eyes on this blog to see some photos of what we are sure will be a FUN afternoon!

And here they are!  Well done year sixes, it was a great afternoon, filled with lots of fun.
