Team 2 - Term 3 2019


MeasurementMeasurement
In Room 6 we have been doing measurement for maths. We have been learning about centimetres, millimetres, kilometres and metres. We have also been doing perimeter and area. Last week we were practising the time as well. We have been using metre rulers as well as measuring wheels.
 

Papier MachePapier Mache
Room 7 have been making papier mache pigs. We blew up balloons and covered the balloons with so many layers of newspaper so they don’t crumple up when we pop them. They would only need to be popped if we were making piggy banks. We have had lots of fun making them so they look cool. We first painted them white for the base colour then most of them pink so it would look more like a piggy.
 

Book ReviewsBook Reviews
Lately Room 8 have been silent reading a lot, and we want to share our books so we’re starting to do book reviews (mostly on David Walliams). We did a few book reviews last term and now we’re taking them to the next level! Room 8 loves reading and we’re trying to get to 30 minutes of silent reading and we think that the book reviews encourage us to read different books and read more! 


 

Winnie the Pooh Comic StripsWinnie the Pooh Comic Strips
Room 8 has been reading a Winnie The Pooh story and we are trying to summarize the story using comic strips. We could do it in two ways: doing mostly pictures and speech bubbles or doing mostly words and pictures to match the text. Most of Room 8 loves the book because it is funny and Rabbit pretends he's not in his hole/house.
 

Aboriginal CultureAboriginal Culture
This term Team 2 has the topic of different cultures. Room 8 is looking at the Aboriginal culture. But we’re just starting this topic so we can’t tell you much. Team 2 parents, if you have lived in a country with a different culture please come in and share what that cultures about and it’s fine if you come from Australia and just say that you speak differently or something that some people or lots of people know. We have been writing about the sky in Uluru and we have watched a video on Youtube about what the aboriginal people painted, wrote, saw, and later this term we are going to try paint what the aboriginal people painted.
