Incredible Instructions by Khuzaimah

In Literacy we have been learning about instructions. I think that instructions are fantastic because they help you to do things.

This week we have been trying to follow lots of instructions to help us to do and make things but sometimes you can struggle  with them because some instructions are hard to read.

I am going to keep using Persistence power so I can understand the instructions and not struggle.

Have a look at these photos. This is what we have been doing in Literacy.  We have used lots of instructions to do Christmas activities. Here are some of them: making a Christmas Wordsearch, making a big Art Attack and making a 3D snowflake which I think looked really difficult to make but they did a good job with Miss Bass!

I think the instructions were hard but they have helped me to learn what makes a great instructions. I think you should add pictures to your instructions so you can see what things look like.

Which Christmas activity did you do?

Did you find it hard or easy to follow the instructions?

This term’s topic is Hooray for Bollywood. 

This week we have been learning about India. We have been looking at buildings, cities, clothing and hobbies. We learnt that the capital city is New Deli, there’s a colossal building called the Golden Temple!  The streets are  always busy and much more.

This is the Golden Temple

Numeracy by Harris and Kaylan

In Numeracy we have been learning about digital time. It was fun because it was hard at first but it got easier. It was extremely hard to complete some challenges. I like Numeracy because sometimes it’s challenging and sometimes it’s easy.

 What do you think about Numeracy?   

By Harris

 In numeracy we had to partition a sum and explain how we partitioned it.  We learnt about time and we did challenges.   You had to write the time on the sheet with the little clocks on the sheet.   Underneath the clocks we had to write the analogue or digital time.

Time Tastic!

This week in Numeracy you are becoming talented time tellers. Use this website underneath to choose a favourite game and challenge yourself to improve your own knowledge:

Can you set someone a time challenge or question to see how much we all know about time?

E.g. The flight to Mumbai departed at 12:30am and arrived at 8:00pm. How long did the flight take?

Good luck to all you tick tockers!

The 3D Shape Challenge

Wow! Year 3 when I came in today I was amazed by all the fantastic ideas and shape talk.  You were working on a very exciting challenge of making your own 3D building using nets.

How many 2D and 3D shapes can you spot and name in these buildings?
