Weather and Clothing
With a change in weather looming and temperatures dropping can we make sure that children are dressed appropriately for school. Layers are a good way of allowing the children to be comfortable, giving them the option to adjust their clothing when necessary. But please, not too many layers!
Layering your child with too much outerwear can actually make them colder. That’s because excess layers can cause your child to sweat, which makes their clothes wet, which allows the cold and wind to bring their temperature down.
Brody, Ryan and Muchan in Year 6 are organising a Book Drive to help spread our love of reading. The Sony Corporation will collect books to create mobile libraries in South Africa for schools that do not have enough books for children to read.
Please send in Primary age-appropriate books if you have any to spare.
- What scientific inquiry is? (Form)
- How the scientific process is used? (Function)
- How scientific investigations have impacted the world around us (Connection)
Central Idea – Fractions, decimal fractions and percentages are ways of representing whole-part relationships
An inquiry into…
– decimal fractions and the number system
– how ratio is used to make comparisons
– sequences involving whole numbers, fractions and decimals.
Central Idea – Data Handling
Range, mode, median and mean can be used to analyse statistical data.
We will continue to discuss and apply strategies to add and subtract fractions. The children will also explore open-ended problems related to fractions so that they can share their thinking when solving problems. In Strand Math, our data handling work will be ongoing where we are displaying and analysing data from the summer Olympics across 100 years.
Our text type for Unit 4 is a non-chronological report. Next week we will start to deconstruct some examples and discuss the written elements and the language used. As we become more advanced and experienced writers we hope to become more aware of our reader as the audience and engage them in our writing.
