Numeracy class starts with warm-up. We have started the term off by investigating divisibility of different numbers, finding average, ordering fractions on number line, finding equivalent fractions, converting fractions to decimals and applying these skills to word problems. Students are solving word problems which involved mathematical concepts that they have learned throughout the term to boost their creative thinking and enhancing mental skills. The students successfully completed investigations on unit conversion, perimeter and recognising the properties of 2D shapes. Other topics that were covered this term included finding elapsed time, constructing angles, collecting data through hands on activities, displaying data in line /column graph and interpreting different types of graphs.
Science & Design and Technologies
This term in Biological Science we have been exploring the adaptation of different animals and plants through hands on activities and experiments. Hands on science investigation encourages students to observe and make discoveries of their own and this enhances their critical thinking skills. Students thoroughly enjoyed our science lessons and increased their knowledge immensely. Each week of this term the students performed experiment to learn how plants and animals adapt in different environment. They had the great opportunity to go for an excursion to Kings Park, where the students explored the adaptation of desert plants through hands on experience. Our students looked like little scientists when they were investigating different unique plants of Australia.
