The Wonderful World of 5KS


Students worked independently and in a focused manner to finish their UOI summative assessment pieces.  They made art pieces that express who they are in many different mediums and completed an analysis of their piece.


All literacy work this week has been connected to the analysis and reflection connected to the planning of our UOI summative assessment.

We have also been reading various short stories written by Paul Jennings.  This week we enjoyed ‘Cow Dung Custard’ and ‘Little Squirt’.


We continued reading “The Librarian who measured the Earth” by Kathryn Lasky.  We were able to identify that this year in Maths we have learned all the necessarily elements to be able to calculate this ourselves!

We also begun the ‘youcubed my heart’ activity in pairs.  In this task, students are asked to identify the number of shapes, perimeter and area of a heart shaped structure.  Students have been discussing different strategies to complete this task and are recording their thinking and ideas.  We will be finishing this task and sharing our results with each other next week.
