"Guess what, my big girl! I have a surprise"
"What! A surprise?"
"Yes a surprise."
"What is it?"
"It is a baby"
"What! A baby?"
"Yes, a baby!"
Two years later...
"You are getting so, so, so, so cheeky." shouted Mum to the baby.
The next day when the sun was rising up, the little girl... shuffled along the kitchen floor and Bella, with chubby cheeks, climbed high up to the three shelves to get the nutella. She unscrewed the nutella lid and got a handful and chucked it up in the air and it rained nutella!
"Welcome to my party. I'm so pleased that you came to my house. Come in guys for my party."
|Today's Writing Prompt|
She opened the jar and put her hand in and shoved her face in. Gobble, gobble, gobble. She got very messy but the duct-tape on her Mum ripped.
"You are a naughty cheeky baby! Go and clean yourself up!" the Mum said. She ran a bath and cleaned the baby up. "You look shiny clean." the Mum said.

Here is a great photo of Cameron concentrating hard at maths. He was playing a new game Mrs Lunn made for his maths group. They were each given three playing cards (not the 10s or the picture cards) and they had to arrange the cards to make the biggest number possible. The group was learning all about place value.
After a few goes at this, Cameron was so flash that Mrs Lunn gave him four cards! Now he was making numbers in the thousands! Well done Cameron. You certainly were an amazing mathematician today!

Here are a couple of photos Mrs Lunn took of us at Maths. The first is the Triangles group playing a new place value game using Monopoly money. The second photo is of the Squares group racing to see which pair can complete their hundreds puzzle the fastest. Great learning... great fun!

Today we finished making the parachute for Jack. We tested them by dropping the parachutes off the top of the bars. We found out that the bigger parachutes were better. They floated slowly down to the ground and kept our Lego man Jack safe.
Today the Triangles maths group were playing Addition Jenga. It's a great way to practice your basic facts. On the trickier equations the kids had to apply some of the strategies they have been learning about to solve the equation. We learnt about near doubles today. Feel free to ask the Triangles all about them.

Today we started Genius Hour. This is a workshop that we could choose to do. Basically we get to do what we are passionate about. Aeva loves insects so she found out all about them. Sam loves building with mobilo. He designed and made a special gun with a trigger that actually moves. Alex and Sukhdeep worked together to build a race track complete with a round about. Matty is passionate about learning so he spend his time writing an amazing story. Some kids love art so they made some fantastic pieces of art that we will display in our classroom. What a fabulous first session of Genius Hour!
We recieved a letter from Jack who is the main character in Jack and the Beanstalk. He needs our help! He loves climbing the beanstalk because it is great exercise but unfortunately the Giant often tries to catch him. It takes too long for Jack to climb down the beanstalk. He's asked us to find a fast and safe way for him to get down. Here are a few photos of us busy trying to solve Jack's problem. Feel free to ask us what we've been up to. We'd love to tell you all about it!

If you can imagine the noise 22 excited five and six year olds would make, then double it... you'll probably be close to the noise level in LC 15 this afternoon!
We received a letter from some Fairy Tale Characters! They need our help to solve some of the problems they face in their stories. We were dancing around and squealing with delight when we heard that one of the characters is going to come to school to see us and hear all our wonderful suggestions! To say we are excited is definitely an understatment!
We are so looking forward to next week.

Here are a couple of photos of us demonstrating what it means to be a good self manager. We follow the instructions on the task card, we get out our looking cards for writing and we put our games away. When we demonstrate our excellent self management skills, we move up an Independence Level. We are loving having our Press Passes to wear!
