Space Project

 A Space project information sheet went home on Friday. This project is due on Wednesday, November the 2nd. During this time, there will only be reading and Mathletics for homework. I can’t wait to see all the creative ideas presented to the class after the due date.

Book Week Dress Up Day

Book Week is fast approaching. The Grade 5 teachers have been preparing their costumes for quite some weeks now. We have been talking in class about how you could possibly make your costume from an old t-shirt or craft paper. For example, drawing black spots on a white t-shirt to be one of the 101 Dalmatians or how you could make a cape to be a superhero. The ideas are endless. I can’t wait to see all the characters!

Oatlympics next Friday

Next Friday the 5th of August is the Oatlympics day. We are going to be representing Zimbabwe. We are encouraging the students to be wearing the colours of their country. Zimbabwe’s colours are green, yellow, red and black. Thanks for your support in advance.

Stores and Money

This term we focused on the mental computation strategy, counting up. We associated this with getting change when you buy something. As a follow up activity, we had fun creating our own store and selling items making sure we gave the correct change!
