At the start of the week we completed our Piet Mondrian inspired artwork. We learnt about the five primary colours, then used them to paint the squares and rectangles we created on our paper using masking tape.
The final step was to use a ruler and black marker to rule lines around the shapes. This was quite tricky and for some students it was their first experience using a ruler.
The end result looks fantastic! Come and have a look at them in the classroom!
We also started our reading rotation in the classroom this week. It is great to see the students so excited about learning how to read. Thank-you to everyone for returning the homework reading books the following day so that other students can read them!
In maths this week we focused on ordering numbers up to 100, place value and addition involving 'teen' numbers. Some days the students practice in their workbooks and other days we do more practical activities using equipment.
Here you can see the children each with a number and working co-operatively to stand in order from smallest to largest.
Here some students are using place value blocks to write and read numbers up to 1000.
What a busy week of learning in Lower Primary! Have a great weekend everyone!
