Here are some of our story openers. We pretended we were in the picture and wrote the beginning of a narrative. Then we looked at some author's openers and discovered there are different types. We also learned a new word: onomatopoeia.
These are our first tries - we are going to have another go to see if we can improve them.
We worked out the digital roots for our times tables and we found some strange patterns. We don't know why, but 2x, 5x and 11x have the same pattern, and 3x, 5x and 13x have the same pattern. If we keep making them we are sure we can find some more.
To find a digital root you work out the table and then add the digit in the multiples together until you get a single digit.
1x5=5; 2x5=10 1+0=1, 3x5=15 1+5=6...
1/5, 2/1, 3/6...
Then you record the patterns on your circle.
Can you help us to investigate 14x up to 21x and see if there are some more patterns the same? We will do this for homework.
We have written our inquiry questions.
We already know the names of many parts of our body.
Now we will learn about which muscles we use when we exercise and whether repeating an exercise every day will improve our fitness.
For homework we are keeping eating and activity diaries, and researching the names of our bones.
We will find out which foods, and how much sleep and exercise we need to stay healthy.
Do you have any tips for us?
Our class comes form all over the world because we are an international school. We have students from China, Korea, Denmark, England, France, the Netherlands and Hong Kong. Our teachers come from New Zealand and China. Mrs Ballantyne and Miss Lu share the class. Mrs Ballantyne teaches in English and Miss Lu teaches in Chinese so we learn two new languages. Only one person knew English before coming to our school!
Everyone made a booklet researching their country: including favourite recipes, interesting facts, the coat of arms, the flag, the leaders, dangerous animals and landmarks.
