What a fun book week we had!
The students rose to the occasion sharing their poems, their awesome array of tongue twisters in many languages and of course in their costumes on Friday. Displaying great creativity and in some cases awesome collaboration with one group incorporating five characters from the same book. Well done to them all but especial congratulations to our grade finalists Henry- Willy Wonka, Ella- Giant and Cali as Sophie from the BFG, Praew, Gift, Miki, Ninny and Eve from The inside out books. Wei Wei, Kael, and Punchie from The Adventure land series, Qing Qing and Milliez from Winnie the Pooh stories and Maya from the demon dentist with a truly scary, hand made mask. We look forward to hearing who the winners are from our grade. Look at the photos below who would you pick?
The students also spent time on Friday creating some very dramatic scenes incorporating all of their characters. Showing excellent cooperation, organisation and creative skills.
The prizes have been awarded!
For their amazing talents in the tongue twister competition prizes went to Miu Miu, Sophia and Kaede.
Costume winners were Henry and Wei Wei, Kael, and Punchie. Congratulations.
The students are now moving forward with their inquiries, they are beginning to survey others to find more information and are currently identifying their expert who they will interview.
We are now moving into decimal fractions and will be equating these with the fractions we have been studying and also real life situations.
In Literacy this week we will be continuing to look at how we record information from the articles we find and also how to present this in a variety of ways.
As the end of this week was to have been spent away on residential we felt that it was only fair that we added a few more fun/ team building events into our week , therefore on Thursday there will be no swimming for the grade as they will take part in a house sports session ( They will need to have their house t-shirts) and on Friday the students will take part in their swimming gala and also have a movie treat.
