Maths Smart - Tangrams.

Today we were Maths Smart. We explored tangrams. First we played and made different pictures. Then we tried to make a square shape using our seven pieces. This was hard - but we did not give up. Mrs Kennedy gave us one to look at and copy.
Zac was the first Prep to make his square.

Smarty Pants!

Our term four Inquiry is Have A Go - Smarty Pants. We are discovering that we all learn in different ways and have talents in many areas. Are you Art Smart? Maths Smart? Body Smart? Music Smart? Nature Smart or Word Smart? This week we looked at Nature Smart. We each chose an animal and then had to draw its habitat.
Here are our pictures.

What do you think? Which Smarty Pants are you?

Our Action - Reaching Out

As part of our Inquiry learning in term two, we discovered that all living things need food, water, shelter and protection to survive. We decided that our final action for this unit would be to raise money for the homeless, those people who do not have shelter and protection and a place to sleep at night. To raise this money we created a calendar to sell to our school community. The theme of our calendar was 'Responsible Pet Care'. We chose our favourite pets and wrote pet care rules for each pet. We used line and pattern to make each picture. We are very proud of our calendar and our school community who have supported us.

Working Together.

Today we worked with a partner and 'shared the pencil'. We were writing to our school families to tell them about a special project we are working on. Together we talked about what we would write and then we remembered all the things we have to do when writing. We helped each other to spell words, keep our writing on the lines, put spaces between words and reread our writing to check that it made sense. We love writing!

Here we are in action!
