As we are three weeks into semester two we have already learnt many knew things this is what Ive learnt this term in each subject.
In maths we first did some revision on rounding, fractions, and more. Then we started focus on time for around a week for example: how many hours are in a week? Or how many years is a century? After, we moved on to quadrants were we created a box with four boxes and a line upwards that was counting up in positive numbers and a line going down with negative numbers and the same on the sides. We had to create our initial and figure out what the coordinates are for the corners.
In english we have been listening to a fiction story named “His Name Was Walter” we listen to around one chapter per day we are up to chapter 6, we have four different groups in our class, in our groups we use character maps for the story, each main character has their name on a patch of the page and you write personality traits we know about them and reason we know that. We also have a wonder wall for questions for the next chapter or just in general.
In Stars we are working on conclusions and inferences and the details that give us the hints on whats happening, we read passages as a class and shared what we concluded is happening, after we went off by our selves and answered the multiple choice questions in our stars book.
In Spelling we have started a new program I have got the idea that we focus on a new sound each week were we have seven or six rows for each spelling of the sound and words that use that spelling for example: /d/ paddle= middle, riddle, saddle. That is one of the rows for double d sound, after we could choose three words to make story starters, in my last blog I shared them.
In Hass we have been learning about the Australian convicts and the reason of why the british sent the convicts here. We have also wrote how long different colonys lasted, this is what I found: Port Author= 1830-1877, Moreton Bay= 1824-1842, Norfolk island= 1788-1814/1825-1853, Hobart Town= 1804-1856, Swan River= 1850-1868 and Sydeny Cove= 1788-1840.
In Health we used a session were my teacher read out many cards with feelings or personality traits, we were either supposed to write down if we think we relate or if we know someone who I think relates to the word, before we chose if we relate or not we all shared what we thought it ment or examples.
In Indonesian we have been learning about our daily routine, we got handed out a sheet with activites in english and indonesian, we got put in partners and wrote done every word in english and Indonesian on little square peices of paper then played match the cards game, so say I had picked up the word chicken in Indonesian that would be ayam so I would have to try and match them.
Thank you for reading my blog.
