Last Friday we went to the Werribee Zoo. At the zoo we saw lots of animals. We saw the meerkats, lions, zebras, monkeys, cheetahs, hippos and gorillas. We were excited seeing all of these animals. We were discovering how to care for the animals’ special place. We got to water the plants, dig for bugs and we saw a possum nest that Leticia spotted up in a tree. We also went on the Safari bus. We saw most of the animals on the Safari ride. We drove through water which was fun. After the Safari ride we ate lunch. After this we went on the bus back to school. We loved our visit to the zoo!

Making fairy bread

We made fairy bread to help us learn about writing a procedure. A procedure has a title, numbered steps, verbs and some pictures.

The ingredients we needed were sprinkles, butter, a plate, a knife and bread.

After we made it and ate it, we wrote a procedure about it. It was delicious. We liked making it. 20151105_115628

Last week we went to visit the kinder next door. We played outside and we sang songs. We had lots of fun.

Today the kinder children came to visit us at school. In our classroom we had lots of activities. Some of the activities were drawing, making puzzles, building with blocks, reading books on the laptops, playing with puppets and much more.

We are excited to see them at school next year.

We have been learning to add collections to find out how many altogether. The strategies we used to help us were:

– a number line

– materials such as counters and teddies

– drawing pictures

– counting on from the biggest number

We played lots of games and used dice and playing cards to help us learn. We had fun learning about addition.
