Week 10 - Guest Speaker, Inquiry Projects and Commonwealth Games 

The end of term snuck up on us very quickly.  We had a busy week trying to complete our group inquiry projects.  Scroll through to see the finished products.  We have loved learning about human organs this term and it really shows in our independent inquiry. 

Thank you to Maneesh for coming in and teaching us a little more about some of the organs. We found it fascinating.

It is with great sadness we bid farewell to our dear Hibah.  We have loved your energy and enthusiasm in the classroom.  We will miss you lots but know that you will have a fantastic time at your new school.  All the best, Hibah!

Week 9 - Commonwealth Games!

This week in Room 10 we have started our own mini class Commonwealth Games.  We've been split up into 6 countries and have already started participating in fun events such as speedy spelling, skip counting races and much more.  Some of us have even tried to learn more about our countries at home.  We look forward to continuing on with our games next week.  

On Thursday,  Liu Lasohi and Yu Laoshi showed us how to do Chinese calligraphy.  We practised writing our numbers to 10.

Week 8 - Character Descriptions, Stomach Experiment, Easter 

This week we have begun inquiring into our own organ of choice. No doubt you have started hearing interesting facts about the gall bladder, kidneys, large intestines and bladder.   Over the next week we will be working in small groups to answer the questions we have created about our organ.  We will then present it and teach the class about what we have learnt. This might be in the form of a song, book, diorama or poster. Watch this space!

Week 7 - A Visit from Dr James

This week we were lucky enough to have Dr James come in and talk to us about our organs as part of our inquiry unit. 

In Writing, we have been busy learning how to write explanations on how our organs work.  This week, we finished one on our lungs.  Come and visit the writing gallery to see what we've learnt!

Week 6 - Constable Gordon, Mystery Reader, Heart Inquiry
Wow! What a busy week in Room 10! This week, we have been working alongside Constable Gordon to learn how to cross the street and walk on the path safely.  On Friday, we were luckily enough to go for a ride in his patrol car! We also learnt about seatbelt safety and how to sit in a moving car. 

In Mandarin, Liu Laoshi taught us how to count to 10 in Mandarin.  Here are the numbers if you want to practise alongside with us. 

During Inquiry, we delved into the heart.  We have been learning to listen and find keywords that help us understand a bit more about the topic.  

On Friday, Sam's brother, Yaz came to read to us as our Mystery Reader.  What a wonderful treat!  Thanks Yaz.

Scroll through the pics to check out what we've been learning this week.

Week 5 - Mystery Reader,  Paper Bag Lungs

This week in Room 10 we have been busy learning about the lungs.  Lungs help us breathe.  We learnt that oxygen goes into our bodies, down our windpipe and into our lungs.  Inside our lungs are tree-like bronchioles. Here are some of the paper bag lungs we made.

We were also lucky enough to have our 3rd mystery reader.  The wonderful Mrs Bridgeman! She came in to read us a story about cheeky Scarface Claw.  I wonder who will be visiting us next week?
