Thrughout the week Grade 1B and 1C have been learning all about chance. We read some stories from Sunshine Online that talked about the chance of certain events occuring. After reading the stories we brainstormed a list of words that were associated with chance. Have a look at our words below:
Very LikelyNot Likely Highly Unlikely
We also used some great games on the interactive whiteboard to help us understand chance better. Use them at home to help you practise!
Telling the time can be tricky, there are so many hands to look at! The hand that moves really quickly is called the second hand. The big hand is also called the minute hand and it counts the minutes. The little hand keeps track of the hours.
At the moment we are working on telling o’clock time. We learnt that for o’clock time the big hand always poins to the 12.
Use the games below to pratice telling o’clock time at home
This week the children (and Miss Hunichen) have really enjoyed hearing One Direction as our bell music! We all love to have some fun and have a bit of a sing and dance when we hear them. So that you all know the words I have found a video for each of their hit songs with lyrics you can learn!!
This Friday the 18th May 2012 is National Walk Safely to School Day. We are inviting our school community to walk, ride or skate/scoot all or part of the way to school. The crossing at Chessy Park Dve will be supervised. Fruit will be handed out at the canteen to students as they arrive to school.
Please remember this is about being safe.
If you are riding, scooting or skating remember to wear your helmet.
If you are walking, riding, scooting or skating remember to Stop, Look, Listen, Think before crossing the road
• stop one step back from the kerb
• look and listen for traffic
• decide whether it is safe to cross
• keep looking and listening during the crossing.
On Friday the 11th of May, The Drama Toolbox came to visit the Grade Ones. Each class got to participate in an hour workshop called “Dinosaurs” with the very wonderful Amy- a skilled drama specialist. With beautiful costumes and delightful music, the children were able to become a dinosaur and explore the environment around them. With Tyrannosaurus Rex, Pteranadon, Stegosaurus, Brontosaurs and Triceratops costumes, children used dramatic techniques and movement to create a dinosaur spectatular. Children explored the dinosaur life cycle through nest building, egg hatching, living in a herd and searching for new habitats. They rolled in the mud, drank from the waterfall and looked for food.
