We have been learning lots of new language in Probability.  We have learnt about chance, possible, impossible, likely and less likely.

Oscar F - What is the chance that I choose the red one?
Nubaid - It is less likely because there is only one.

Britta - What is the chance of me picking a black dinosaur?
Julia - It would be impossible because there are no black dinosaurs.

Aaron - What is the chance of choosing a green dinosaur?
Brodie - It is likely because there are more greens than yellows.

Alexi - What is the chance of me choosing a yellow one?
Ruby - It is impossible because there are no yellow ones.

Miss P's Writers

My dream school looks wonderful. It’s made out of clouds! We have ice-skating. There is a gymnastics competition! My school has interesting things like bugs and science and aquariums and butterflies too. I would like a swimming pool. The school has a fair. The fair has lollies. Nearly every day the children have breakthrough. All the children tell the truth when they hurt someone or broken something. By Brooke
My schools name is Almor Junior High. The school has no rubbish and the school is clean. You can even have dinner there. A wizard would be your teacher. You could have a cake there. I would like to learn about list words. My school would have 9 kids. The wizards name would Wizard Blot. There would be Ipads. By Oscar
My school dream I would like a pet shop and pets. My school is fun. I would like girls to have powers but not boys. Girls can do everything but not boys. I wish we can bring loom bands to school. Teachers are cool. I want to be a teacher. By Simone
My dream school is fancy. I would like girls to have powers but not boys. I want the girls to do everything and the boys can do nothing. I would prefer something cooler like this, if the teacher were bubbles! Some children would like this one, if we were vampires. Wouldn’t it be cool if everything was scary. I would like there to be bats. By Olivia

WALHT: Give and receive feedback in writing

Today we gave feedback to each other in our writing.

We talked about sharing the things that we liked and suggesting a next step or two.  We decided that feedback is a really exciting thing as it reminds us of what we did well and helps us in our learning.

We also looked at the WALHT ('We Are Learning How To...') and tried to decide if the learner focused on this.

Here's Mrs Chant's example for Griffin:

Here we are sharing some of our feedback:

Griffin feeding back to Isla:

Brodie feeding back to Aaron:

How do you think we went?

Here is a graph showing which colour we prefer. How did we get this information? How did we create our graph?

We were sorting ourselves out into 2 groups can you work out what they are...
Learners with long sleeves...

Learners with short sleeves.

Can you work out what information we are putting on this graph? 

This graph shows the different ways we al get to school.

Used children's books

We are starting to prepare for the school fair next term.  

If you have any used children's books that you don't read anymore we would love to have your donations! 

Books need to be in good order (i.e. no rips and not falling apart), so they can be enjoyed at a new home. If you have a few spare plastic bags, that would be appreciated too.

Books can be given to Mrs Freddy in hub 5/6 . 

 Thank you for helping us fundraise!
