Monday sees the start of some winter warm-up fitness! A great way to start a day of learning is to get ACTIVE. Exercise is a great way to energise and get into the zone for learning. Running some laps will also get your house some points that will be tallied up at the end of each week and we will announce the winners here in our newsletter. Cass on of our ES will be supervising from 8am-8.25am then kids will go and get something to eat from our breaky program.

IF STUDENTS ARRIVE AT SCHOOL BETWEEN 8.00am and 8.25am THEY WILL BE EXPECTED TO PARTICIPATE.


GRADE 5-6 CLASSROOM ECONOMIES

The grade 5-6s are creating classroom economies this term. How this works is students apply for jobs within the classroom ( these jobs have been agreed upon by the class) and they get paid for these jobs ( not real money!). They then need to use this money to either rent or buy their desks, pay bills and even pay fines!! They receive bonus dollars for handing in work on time or picking up a part-time job ( things in the yard that may need doing!). Grade 5-6B have as one of their jobs 'news director' and this person is in charge of bringing current affairs to the class and reporting on what the class has been up to each week. This week they had Raoudha filling in and her report follows. Stay tuned for more news from 56B and also about how this project goes across the term


NEWS FROM 5-6B

“In 5-6B in maths we have been learning about multiplication, arrays, and factors. We have been doing a great job and learning new things in our small groups. We have also been improving by making mistakes and learning from them. Looking forward to next week!”












LAUNCH, EXPLORE, DISCUSS

This year we are expanding the way we teach maths. We will continue to have lessons where we explicitly teach important maths skills and students will spend time practising these skills in order for them to have automatic recall of maths facts. Alongside this, we will be having students participate in 'rich task' learning where students will become curious about an interesting real-world maths problem and firstly spend time on their own to think of possible solutions and then collaborate with others. We know that when maths learners spend time discussing their thinking and working on solutions with others their confidence is built and they participate more in the learning. This week we have included what this looked like in the classrooms so you can see for yourselves our new approach. You can see the learning task that the children worked on HERE and there are pictures in our movie below.
