To help us with our retell writing, we created an iPod Circle, using dialogue to show the characters’ feelings and point of view. Can you guess the characters? Choose from: the father, the eldest son, the youngest son.

ALDI MATHS – Measuring Capacity

A group of students have prepared an introductory video to help their parents with the Aldi activity on Family Maths Night. The activity called for the user to takes screenshots of items on the Aldi website, which were sold by capacity. Then they were to be classified into those measured in litres or millilitres.
Thanks Ava, CJ, Catherine, Marcus, Darcy, Elijah, Lucas CO, Harrison and Lauren.
