Today we learnt about managing our time. Each team received their weekly tasks in a folder. They needed to:
1. Plan what tasks they would do for each day of the week
2. Check that they had their resources and sheets ready
3. Stick their task card on to remind them

This was a great way to build independence and there was some excellent discussion about choices that could be made. Each team then got a magazine container that would be used to keep their books, grids, instructions and sheets.

I was very impressed with how the children embraced the time management and organisation aspects of learning!

Telling the time

In Maths, we learnt about the hour and minute hand and their jobs. We also explored why people need time and where we use a clock. Here is a song that we used to remind us of how to read the time.

The students did a great job performing their songs in front of the class!

Our first term Inquiry

We are starting our first term inquiry. We will be learning how the choices that we make affect others. In class, we recorded choices that we could make in class. Here are some examples:
1. To help or sit back
2. To listen or ignore people
3. To learn or not to learn
4. To be kind or be mean
5. To say nice words or mean words.

Our important big question this term is:
