Today we were revising positional words such as – behind, under, over, next to, up, beside and so on. We read ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.

After we had read the story and listened to it we sequenced the places they went then we created our own map using coloured paper, cardboard and cottonwool.

This morning we were very lucky to have a visit from Jackie from Western Water. We got to meet Sammy the Snake and we learnt about the water cycle and how it is continuous. We also learnt that water can come in many forms – a solid, a liquid and a gas. It is truly amazing.

Jackie also told us a story about Donna the Water Droplet and her amazing adventure with her friends.

Who Sank the Boat?

On Friday we read the book ‘Who Sank the Boat?’ by Pamela Allen as we are looking at her books this term. Last week we read ‘Mr McGee and the Blackberry Jam’. After we had read ‘Who Sank the Boat?’ we used a retelling ribbon and retold the story, looking at what happened in the beginning, the middle and the end of the story. We then drew pictures for each part in our books.
After recess we looked at floating and sinking. We tested very items in the classroom and predicted whether they would sink or float. After that we were issued a challenge – we had to make a boat that could float from 2 sticks of modelling clay. When we had made our boat we had to test it in a tub of water. There were lots of boats that sank but we showed great persistence by trying again and again until our boat floated. Rose was the first person to make a boat that floated. Then we had to test our boat to see how many plastic people we could fit in our boat before it sank. We had lots of fun and made a big mess with the water!

On Thursday afternoon our Grade 6 buddies came to work with us. We were working on a sheet about our likes and dislikes – what we like at school and why, what we like at home and why, our favourite colour, our favourite animal and even our favourite TV show. Our buddies did the writing for us and we drew the pictures and coloured in. Some of us even traced over their writing.

What is your favourite food?

Yesterday in Maths we learnt a new game, it was called the ‘lolly jar’ game. This is a game introduced to us by Michael Ymer and it helps the students with their counting to 10, recognising that 10 can be made up of different combinations, dot representations for the numbers to 6 and getting along skills as we have to play this game with a partner.

Which numbers did you find easy and which ones were difficult?

Grade 6 Buddy Activity

On Thursday our Grade 6 buddies came to do an activity with us using their netbooks. They had to print a heading for us and add some pictures of books covers that we liked. They had to work out whether they would fit on the cover of our book or not. We printed them, cut them out and arranged them on our books. We really enjoyed this activity with our buddies.
