Tuning In/Finding Out

In mathematics we have been inquiring into multiplication and division. We have shared strategies that we already know, created questions about what we want to find out and have discussed the connections between multiplication and division. We will be learning a range of different strategies and deciding which one works best for particular problems.

To find out about exploration and perspectives we have been reading recount texts. As well as looking for the causes and impacts in these stories, we have identified the form and function of recount writing and started writing our own recounts.

We had an informative and inspiring Skype conversation with Annie Waterston, a PE teacher who is going on an expedition to Antarctica in February. She explained her reasons for exploration; to raise awareness about the impact of global warming and to inspire people to make changes in their daily lives. The goal is to promote renewable energy before the moratorium of Antarctica ends in 2041. Visit www.2041.com for more information.
