We are learning how to play Yahtzee. We need to use lots of addition strategies and some knowledge of probability to play this game.

Hyperbole fishing stories

We have been learning about hyperbole.  We have identified hyperbole in some song lyrics.  Then we read some hyperbole stories.  We really enjoyed There was an old lady who swallowed the Fly Guy by Trevor Van Meter and The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl.  We have written our own hyperbole stories about fishing.  Then we published our stories in 3d presentations.


Cloud personification poetry

We have been learning about personification.  We have found examples of personification in song lyrics.  Then we read a personification poem and had a go at writing our own about everyday items like our school back packs.  These are some of our cloud personification poems.

Ocean pollution projects

We are learning about oceans.  We have already researched ocean pollution, then created some art with written reports.

Now we have a rubric of tasks to complete. We need 60 points and we can choose any of the activities.

Here is Rico, Daniel and Jakob's first puppet pals project

Here is Lizzy's pamphlet about ocean pollution
