1/2M and 1/2A continued their Measurement unit this week with a hands-on lesson about Capacity. We measured with both water and sand and even had a go at estimating the capacity of different containers. It was fun!

1/2M were honoured to receive the very first Bell Primary School Specialist Award! Our school specialist teachers Chelsea (Art), Tom (Sport) and Andrew (Music) awarded us with the trophy last Friday and it has been proudly displayed in our room this whole week. The trophy was lovingly made by our wonderful Art teacher Chelsea! The award winning class is decided together by the specialists and is given to a class that has worked well and displayed the school values during all of their lessons. Well done 1/2M!

The Grade Ones also had some super fun working with Ms S during measurement rotations. We tried measuring the length of our feet, the tables, the chairs…we even measured  the length of the classroom!

We learnt that when you are measuring the length of something, the things you are measuring with need to be the same size and length. Archie

I learnt when you measure with different things, they need to be touching. Isabelle

I liked measuring my foot because it was interesting learning how long my foot was. Dom 

I enjoyed measuring the classroom with my feet. It was really fun! Gus 

I enjoyed measuring the page with my fingerprints! Alice

Posted by moya | Posted in Celebrations and Special Days, PE | Posted on March 24, 2014

The 1/2s had a fabulous day out in the sun on Friday, getting nice and active during sessions 3 and 4 for the tabloid sports, run by our Junior School Council representatives. Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed working their way through all the activities. We had the limbo, stilt walking relays, three legged races, the giant parachute and silent ball,  just to name a few. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and there were bucket loads of plus ones given out! Special mention to our terrific 1/2 JSC reps, you were fantastic! We couldn’t be prouder of you!

1/2L’s Ride to School Day Graph

Posted by moya | Posted in Celebrations and Special Days, Maths | Posted on March 24, 2014

Last week we made a graph to show how 1/2L got to school on Ride to School Day. It is a pictograph with some beautiful drawings! We talked about the different parts of a graph and came up with our own 5 start criteria.

Graphs need to –

  • display the data you collected
  • have a title
  • have an x and y axis with labels
  • have labels for the data (so we know what it is)
  • be neat and tidy

We were pretty proud of ourselves as no one in our class drove to school. Great team effort! We then interpreted the data, here’s what we came up with!

Posted by milica | Posted in English | Posted on March 23, 2014

1/2M have been working on so many exciting activities during Reading Groups this term. Some groups have been working on their comprehension, others on summarising their texts or practicing their weekly sightwords. We have been focusing on common/proper/singular and plural nouns as well as compound words. The Green group has been discovering the features of non-fiction texts and even conducted some experiments on sound!

1/2A’s ‘Ride to School Day’ survey

Posted by matta | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on March 19, 2014

 

 

We conducted a survey in class today, asking the question ‘How did you get to school today?’. Students took those results, created a tally and transferred that into a graph. It was a very successful day for 1/2A, with majority of the class participating in the initiative.
