Spaghetti Letters

Today Gow, Joey, Abass, Joyice and Shigufe had lots of fun with Ms Hornby and Mr Broadway.

We sat in a circle and were blindfolded so we couldnt see and then we had to find the letters in the coloured spaghetti (that looked like worms).

We had to find A, P, C, R, H, S and M, and then make a word with that letter.

The spaghetti was cold and soft and felt like noodles. Gow thought it smelt like rice.

After that, Ms Hornby started throwing the worms and it made a big, big mess.

Everyone was so happy and Ms Hornby was so silly.

“Yesterday” by The Beatles

We have been learning “Yesterday” by The Beatles. We have been finding the rhyming words in the song! Can you find them?

Yesterday
All my troubles seem so far away
Now it looks as though they are here to stay
Oh I believe in
Yesterday

Suddenly
I’m not half the man I used to be
Now I shadow hanging over me
Oh Yesterday
Came suddenly

Why she had to go
I don’t know
She wouldn’t say
I said
Something wrong
Now I long for yesterday

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
oh I believe in
yesterday

Why she had to go
I don’t know
She wouldn’t say
Something wrong
Now I long for
Yesterday

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
oh I believe in
Yesterday

Rock Around the Clock!

After much excitement, the Grade 1’s are proud to announce their premiere release of “Rock Around the Clock”!

Students created the rock n roll style dance during the exploration of “time” in workshops. A group decided to be really dedicated to learning the dance, even during lunchtimes and Friday Fun! Their reward for their engagement and positive learning attitudes was to create this film clip.

Well done, you should all be very proud of your learning!

Designing our Costumes

Today we brainstormed ideas for our costumes for Thursday night. A challenge has definitely been set! Dress up as something mathematical… Here were some of our ideas from our brainstorm:

“I have a love heart dress, how many hearts are on it?” Tori
“You could wear spots, triangles or other shapes” Sarsha
“Numbers or symbols!” Aaliyah
“You could wear patterns” Liam
“A chess piece” Edward
“Robots because they go fast or slow which is maths” Risinu
“Time” Sarsha
“We could dress up as paper planes!”

Check out some of the costumes that we made…

Does the weight effect how far our models go?

Continued from our “Mrs Armitage on Wheels” workshops…..

Today we discussed the question “What would make a difference to how far our model travelled?”. We came up with lots of ideas – one being whether the weight would make a difference.

We weighed our models on scales. We used tiles to measure how heavy they were. Guess what? The model that went the furthest was also the heaviest!
