The Three Little Pigs


Today we listened to the Three Little Pigs on the iPad. We liked it because we could tap on the characters and they would speak. The more we tapped the more the characters had to say. When we tapped they said different things. We could flip the wolf and his van. We could make them flip or jump. The three little pigs chucked their materials together to make their houses.

Allanah had to pay $10.99 for the app. It was so worth it.

Playtime

We like it how the Year Fours and Year Fives work together on such a great structure. We like to build dams and blow the dams up and let all the water out. We particularly like the beginning where we funnel the water out of the pump, down the funnels and into the dam.

We are so lucky to have our playground.

Soccer Training

Today we had a fabulous session with George learning soccer skills.
Hooray. I scored a goal.
After we did some skills we had a four a side game with the green v the orange bibs. We did not keep score.

Many of us were filthy at the end but it was good fun.

Perimeter

Today we are doing some revision on working out the perimeter of shapes. Here are some activities to support this.

There are three levels of working out perimeters in this activity. It will be good to start on the beginning level and see how far you get.


This activity gets a little trickier.


This activity shows you how to add the length of the sides together.

This activity shows what we know about measuring perimeters to help make a good playpen area for a puppy.


These activities we can start doing together and then we can move at our own pace.
