This week we have been investigating Fractions in Action Stations. We know that Fractions of a whole have to be the same size. We learned cool words like 'numerator' and 'denominator'. We explored fractions of shapes and numbers (for example, what is half of 8?) in many different ways. Here we are showing some of our fraction thinking!

Electrical Circuits!

Did you know playdough can be electric? On our last day of term we had a great time exploring playdough electrical circuits and making LED lights glow. We used salt dough as a conductor and a sugar dough as an insulator. It took a bit of fiddling around to discover how to make the circuit work but shouts of delight could be heard all over the room as one by one we figured it out and helped each other. What a fun way to end the term! Happy holidays everyone! 
Making interesting shapes for our circuits.

Sometimes it didn't work! Trying insulating dough to make a circuit wasn't very successful.

Rawe have been investigating simple electrical circuits. We can share our thinking about how electrical circuits work.

Rawe have been so busy getting ready for the production. We have been working hard practising our dances and songs. Here are some children making part of our costume. I wonder what it could be? Come along to our production to find out! Thank you to those who have sent along costumes ready to go. If you haven't yet please send them along on Monday. Black pants/leggings with a bright coloured t-shirt (red, orange or yellow for Mrs Polaschek's boys particularly).
