WALT talk about our thinking

In Room 6, we have to talk about our thinking. 
In maths, first we do number talks. This is where we talk about a number. Today we did the number 24. 
We work in small groups to think and talk about all the things we know about that number. Then our teacher will get us to share our ideas and write them on the board. Here is our ideas from today.

Then our teacher will launch the problem. This means she will give us a problem and we have to think about how to solve it. Our teachers always say this is 'independant think time' because we have to think just by ourselves. We write our thinking down in our books.

This was our question from today

Then our teacher will get us to share our ideas and we take turns. We have to explain to our class what thinking we did and so how we got our answer. Our teacher writes it on the board for us.

In our class, we don't laugh at people who make mistakes. We help them fix them, and we learn from each other. 
Here you can see that Joshua did one way, Saia (and others) did another way, and Auckland did another way. Since we talked about our thinking, we could learn from each others different ways to solve the problem and help each other learn the fastest and best way to solve it.

Miss Ashley was very happy with Saia, because he said "I almost did Auckland's way". This means he knows that what he did and could talk about it, and he understood the strategy Auckland used as well, and could think about the differences between the two. 

Awesome thinking Room 6!

Water Campaign #2

This week, some of room 6 students went with Mrs Sharma to all the classes in the school and taught them the signs we made for harmony and peace.

Harmony               and                    Peace

Then we made posters to encourage people in our class, school and community to drink water.
Here are some photos of us drafting our posters and then making them!

On Thursday, Miss Ashley is going to take us to put some of our posters up around the school so we can teach others about how drinking water is good for us and how we should all drink water. 

And Mrs Sharma will take us around again to remind the students of TPS about peace and harmony, and we can put this into our movie about our school values!

Water campaign!

Throughout Term 1, Room 6 has talked a lot about how important it is to drink water.

We started by investigating the uses of water,
then we looked at why water is important for your body.
See some student examples below...

We learnt more about water through this song here -

We are going to do two things to finish off our water campaign, which is 1) to make posters and put them around the school to teach others about the importance of drinking water, and 2) we are going to try and make a movie about drinking water!
Here are some photos that we have taken which will be in our movie- 

This is so we can share our knowledge and passion with our school and community!
