Wow! What a start to the school term! We have started studying the beautiful country of the Philippines and are very fortunate here at St Emilie’s to have many families that are from the Philippines and are happy and willing to share their life experiences, photos and realia from their home country with us this term.
One of our aims for this term is to learn about the structure and features of writing a procedure.
Thank you to all of the families who sent in a ‘Healthy Recipe’ last term. We have made a start on publishing these recipes to create a ‘Year Two Healthy Recipe Book’!
We decided that the important things to remember when writing a recipe are…
* Begin with a title (using capital letters)
* List the ingredients (what you need)
* Clearly describe the method (what you do)
* We number the steps so the person reading the recipe knows what order to do them in
We can’t wait to share all of the fabulous recipes we have gathered.
We hope you have lots of fun experimenting in the kitchen!
Please read our class newsletter to find out what we are learning about in Year Four Gold during Term Two.
On Friday the 24th April the Year Fours presented the ANZAC Centenary Assembly.
On ANZAC day we honour all the men and women who have participated in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations around the world, including the ANZACs (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I.
One hundred years have passed since Australia’s involvement in the First World War. The Year Fours helped to honour this very special occasion by reading and acting out the story of ‘Gallipoli’, by Kerrie Greenwood and Annie White. The students really gained a sense of what life was like for the soldiers who fought for Australia, in appalling conditions, and of the mateship and courage that emerged for these heros.
This week in Maths we have been learning about “TIME”. We are very good at reading a digital clock and now we are learning how to read the time in different ways. The different ways we can read and represent the time are:
Here are some pictures of us completing one of the time challenges… We were even timed how quickly we could match up the different times with the different representations.
We are also reading, writing and drawing the time to the minute.
