My Maths Blog Post Term 3 2017

My learning goal is WALT solve division problems using an algorithm.

I have learnt how to solve division facts like 10, 100 and 1,000.

  • I’ve been challenged by having to do the dancing.

  • I learnt the Cha Cha Cha and hip hop

About to Hatch

I am  walking along a beach and It's already 10:30 am on a Tuesday.  All of a sudden I hear something, I run towards the noise. I can hear someone shouting, “ Oi stop trying to crack open that rock.”

I'm starting to see waves crashing over the boulders as one of them begins to roll slowly towards the waves.

I can hear a booming crash inside the humongous boulder and all of  sudden it starts to crack open.

I can smell the scent of bananas oozing from inside the big rough rock.

I can feel hot sand underneath my feet as I start to move carefully towards the spherical rock.

I can taste salty sea water in the salty air as I move forwards.

Crack! A tiny pink fluffy creature pops out . It is a unicorn.

My reflection on this writing:

Writing about what I sensed was happening at the scene eg what I see, hear, feel, taste and smell.

LITERACY WEEK Term 4 Year 2016


This week was literacy week. I did the scavenger hunt with Maxim. Year's 3 - 8 went to the hall to see Soraya Nicholas - visiting author. There was also the dress up day on Thursday.

So What?

My favourite part of literacy week was the dress up day.

Now What?

I want to put more effort into my costume for next literacy week.
