After completing our exploratory activities on 3D shapes, we made an iPod recording to show how our mathematical thinking has changed. As you listen to the recording, you may like to comment on these aspects:
- What mathematical language did we use?
- Has everyone expressed correct mathematical ideas? You may like to write a comment here to them, asking ‘Are you sure? Can you check?’
- Would you like to add anything that you did not get time to do? After all, good thinkers are not always fast thinkers.

Hannah and Madison participated in a spelling workshop with Ms Lockyer during our Daily Five literacy session. The two students are improving their spelling by working out the phonemes and using the THRASS chart to select the correct graphemes for their words. They are also applying their knowledge to spell words using a similar phoneme-grapheme pattern. Hannah and Madison are doing some excellent work here: levelling up with their spelling, and also helping Ms Lockyer improve her teaching.
Can you give us some feedback about our learning in your comments?
