Literacy and Numeracy Week

It was an exciting start to Literacy and Numeracy Week today with our SMCM Book launch. All home groups have worked extremly hard to create at least one picture book that contains a Mathematical concept. We were involved in every aspect of the writing process – from planning, drafting and editing to publishing and now sharing our works of art!

Now it’s time to read and evaluate. This week, parents and families are invited to read all books displayed in the Galleria. Please leave a sticky note comment for the authors!

What book are you interested in reading?

What Mathematical concept does this book contain?

Location Challenge

Year Four students were able to put their understandings of location into practice on Friday, when they ventured on a community walk with Foundation. We identified different routes to Epping North Conservation Reserve and were challenged to map directions, using at least three left hand turns and three right hand turns. Some valuable lessons about location were learned once we set out and when we mapped out clues uncovered along the way. What a wonderful opportunity to use the language of location!

We also explored the grassy woodland habitat with the Foundation students, looking at the flora, fauna and minibeasts at the reserve. This answered some of our questions and provided more wonderings.

What did you learn about location?

Was your walking route the most efficient? What makes you say that?

What did you learn about flora and fauna in the grassy woodlands habitat?
