Stay tune for our poetry!
Our Excursion on Thursday
|On the 16th of March we travelled to the Art Gallery and the State Library. At the Art Gallery we saw an amazing collection of Australian artists from the Twentieth Century. It was interesting to interpret the artists’ intentions and how each painting relates to the decade it was painted in. A very interesting tour! Next we walked to the State Library and saw the Mortlock library which looked like something out of Harry Potter. We got to see the desk where the constitution was written on back in Federation time. We also got to see the secret basement which was amazing. Then we had a quick look at Adelaide Oval. A big thanks for Angela (Michael’s mum) and Cindy who helped supervised our day. Read the students’ Reflections below.
The Construction of our Prisms and Pyramid playgrounds begin!
First we had to draw our designs to meet the requirements of the playground. It had to include a balance beam, cubby house, swings, climbing wall, sandpit and hopscotch. We had to think of how we were going to incorporate prisms and pyramids into our playground. We also have to include notice boards to explain the differences between a prism and a pyramid. As we discovered today, that sometimes you have to moderate your plans and make changes to your design. Also if plan A doesn’t work, then you have to try plan B. We are thinking like mathematicians because we are using our imaginations, asking questions, solving problems, experimenting, sharing ideas and explaining our solutions. Can’t wait to see the finished products!
Swimming notes given out today. Please return as soon as possible. Swimming starts in week 9. Our time is from 9.00am to 10.00am with Miss Luppino’s class.
