We have learned so much about chance in the last few weeks and looked at the chance of things that will happen, wont happen and might happen.
We investigated the likelihood of rolling certain numbers on our game board using 2 6 sided dice. Each player put a counter on the number they thought they would most likely roll. We discovered that the chance of rolling some numbers over others were higher, such as 7, 8 and 9 because there were more combinations to roll these numbers.
We had a great time at basketball clinics a few weeks ago!
We were able to practice our skills of passing and bouncing the ball to eachother, we also played game where we were challenged to dribble the ball from one end to the court to other without getting stopped.
We had such great fun learning these skills.
Thankfully, the maths incursion has been rescheduled for Wednesday the 28th of June, thank you for your patience and understanding!
Grade 1C will have assembly duty date on the June 2nd 2017. Two students from the grade will host assembly and the grade will perform a piece that they have practised in music!
Last week we started writing our own information reports because we have been learning all about Australian animals and we know lots about koalas.
First we began reseaching information about Koalas using books, using weblinks and sheets of information as well as our knowledge. Then we found relevant information about our subheading and recorded the information in our own words. We have looked at things such as their habitat, diet and movement.
We cant wait to continue to research information and include it into our information reports!
During Maths this week, we have been measuring the length of our own creations of Australian animals! We also looked at comparing the length of our animals and looking at the difference sizes. We used unifix to measure the length of the Australian animals and made sure they were lined up on a base line.
On Friday we had the chance to be super heros for a day! We had such a great time showing off our super hero powers AND raising money for a good cause “The Starlight Foundation”
Have a look at what we dressed up as!
From the superheros of grade 1C!
On Wednesday the 3rd of May, grade 1s watched a puppet show on the “Messenger dogs from world war 1”.
We met the messenger dogs Nell, Trick and Bullet and they told us tales of the frontline working alongside the Australian Imperial Force along with their courage, determination and endurance.
We saw how the dogs carried messages from the front line back to headquarters and how they looked after their owners. These dogs had such an important role!
