This week in Topic we have learnt all about the Aboriginal people of Australia! We had an exciting ‘Aboriginal Afternoon’ where we leant lots about the Aboriginal culture including their history, music and stories. We then used all of this knowledge to plan and write our very own non chronological report all about the Aboriginal people. We finished the week, and the term, by completing a ‘Down Under’ quiz. What a fun topic it has been!
We started the week by discussing the meaning of capacity and volume. We learnt that volume was the amount of liquid in a container and capacity was the maximum amount possible in each container. We then practiced reading containers with different scales, including when the water was in-between numbers. We then learnt how to use and read a thermometer to measure the temperature. We enjoyed measuring the temperature in both the classroom and outside. We finished the week by answering lots of questions about the different measures that we have learnt about.
What a fantastic last week of term it has been! All of the teachers are very proud of all of the children for their consistent hard work! This week the teachers would like to say a big well done to the following children:
