On Monday, 1/2ST designed and made their own unique fruit sculptures. This was to assist us with our procedural text writing. We used our fine motor skills to help cut up some of the fruit. We then had to write out a procedure for how we made our sculptures. Our aim was to write a clear and simple step procedure so as someone else could make our creation. We had so much fun!

During term three, students in 1/2ST have chosen to tackle a question (or questions) they are interested in finding out about science. Students have chosen to take on either an individual or shared inquiry. Students have also decided on their own way of displaying their learning. Some students have chosen to make a poster, iMovie, diorama, model, fact book or online book. Here we are, hard at work:

$$$ Money $$$

1/2ST have been working hard on their money unit this term. Below are some of the things we have been learning:

  • To identify the values of Australian coins and notes.
  • That most countries have unique currencies eg. AUD, USD, JPY
    and some countries share the same currency eg. EUR.
  • The relationship between cents and dollars
    ie. 100c = $1
  • That value does not relate to the size of coins

Lesson 2_Value_at level

  • There are lots of ways to show one value.
    eg. You can show $1 with 20 x 5c / 10 x 10c  / 5 x 20c /2 x 50c / 1 x $1 coin.

 

  • That there are specific features on coins and notes that help us identify their value.

Money_Aus Coins

  • That we can use skip counting strategies to count money.
  • That money is used in the real world to buy and sell things.

At the end of the money unit the students made their own products to buy and sell in their very own classroom shops. The classroom was transformed into a busy market place where the students used their new knowledge and skills in a play-based, real life scenario. The students demonstrated great teamwork, creativity, problem solving and reasoning throughout the lesson. We are so proud of all their learning!

Today we practised our measuring skills in 1/2ST. We discussed using formal and informal units and made sure that when we measure something we:

– start and finish at the very edges of the object

– measure with NO GAPS!

Here are some of the pictures of our wonderful learning:
