Greater Than and Less Than!

Today in Maths we learned about less than, greater than and equal to. We all got into a group and then we found some things in the class to make sets to compare. Miss Crowther gave us some crocodile mouths and then we had to make two groups and decide which crocodile goes in between. 
We learned that the crocodile mouth is open towards the biggest number!

Pattern and Algebra!

For the first 2 weeks of Term 4 we have been learning about Pattern and Algebra. We have been doing lots of fun activities in class to practice what we are learning!

We are fantastic at making patterns and saying the rules. For example if a pattern was orange, orange, banana, orange, orange, banana the rule would be AAB. 

You could help us practice at home by making patterns with anything around the house (pegs, cutlery, our toys etc) and getting us to tell you the pattern's rule!

Welcome to Term 4!

We have had a GREAT start to term 4! Check out how awesome we were on the first day back. We all had ourselves sorted and sitting beautifully on the mat ready for the roll as soon as the 9 o'clock bell rang! We are amazing self managers, what a way to start off the term! 

Miss Crowther was so impressed. She sure is lucky getting to teach us :-) 


Our Holiday Maps!

We had a great first day back at school today! Miss Crowther and Mrs Lunn were super impressed with how onto it we were after the holiday break. We really are pretty awesome ;-)

Instead of 'normal' Writing today we drew maps of somewhere we visited over the holidays. We had to label our maps and could write little notes or a big story to go with it. We loved doing this and our teachers thought we did a great job!
