We are thinking like scientists!

We can turn our wonderings into questions. We carry out investigations to try and find out the answers to our questions. Sometimes this means lots more questions and investigations! 

Using strategies to solve maths problems

We are learning to use what we already know to help us solve tricky problems. Check us out!

Wow! What clever mathematicians we have in Owl City. Thank you for sharing your learning with us Ella, Pania and Nikitah-Holly.

Rudolf the Rednosed Reindeer

You can practise it at home, during blog reading time…

Have a read of the lyrics and then have a look at the clip…

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer 

had a very shiny nose. 

And if you ever saw him, 

you would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer 

used to laugh and call him names. 

They never let poor Rudolph 

join in any reindeer games. 

Then one foggy Christmas Eve 

Santa came to say: 

"Rudolph with your nose so bright, 

won't you guide my sleigh tonight?" 

Then all the reindeer loved him 

as they shouted out with glee, 

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, 

you'll go down in history!

Hands on Homework

Week 6

We say good morning and good afternoon to each other and all sorts of people everyday. 
The first part of this weeks hands on homewor task is to record yourself saying hello in at least 5 different languages. (try and practice the pronunciation so you can teach us!)

The second part is to find out a little about the people who say good morning in 1 of the ways you have practiced. You can share your leaning however you choose...maybe you could tell us, make a poster, record yourself, make a movie

Temperature Investigation...

Our yoghurt mix ready to go. We wonder if the temperature (cold or warm) will change the flavour and feel of the yoghurt. Will the yoghurt go thick? We put some yoghurt into the yoghurt maker as a control because we know that works!

Owl City making our yoghurt

We are using the same flavour of yoghurt
for all of the experiments in our investigation.

Make sure it is well mixed!

I wonder if the yoghurt mix on the deck will go thick?

Make sure they are even…
everything except the temperature is the same

Careful, that water is hot!

I-time planning

Wow Owl City! You have made such a great start to planning your week. I love the responsibility you are showing and how you are driving your leaning! You are practising what you need to to reach your goals.

We have been planning our daily maths and reading time all term. It was quite tricky to get everything done because we didn't always have the 'big picture'. Sometimes we would leave our must dos until the last minute but only have a short time to finish them because of R.E and Buddy Class. Now we plan our whole week on Monday.

Have a look at our new weekly plan, this is a preview for next week...
First we put in when we are seeing Kerri, then we add the must dos and if there are any gaps, we put in some can dos.
