The Day the Crayons Quit.

 Today we read the great story, the day the crayons quit. The crayons had had enough of the treatment they were receiving and the owner of the crayons came up with a very creative response to the crayons problems…

Junior School Sleepover

Junior School Sleepover

The Junior school sleepover was a great. Our class all said they had a great time. Despite the hot weather everyone still found enough energy to use the all-abilities playground and dance for a long time at the disco. Here are a couple of photos.

Mr Poole’s Farm Visit! 

Mr Poole’s Farm Visit! 

We had a great time today at Mr Poole’s farm. We took a bus just after recess for about twenty minutes until we arrived at the farm. After putting our bags in a safe spot near the house Mr Poole took us for a ride on the tractor to see many of the animals on the farm. We saw heaps of cows and quite a few of them had calves that we’re having a drink. 

The Bull was in a separate paddock and he was pretty big. We also got to pat horses, check out the dicks and their eggs and of course give cuddles to their pet Dog Phoebe.

Making Inferences!

This week we haqve been talking about something called an inference. An inference is when we use clues from the text and our knowledge to make a guess about what is happening in the text.

Clues from text + Our own knowledge= An INFERENCE!

We read a couple of texts and made inferences from them and yesterday we made inferences using this great little animation. Check it out…

 

 

This short little video is another way of explaining what an inference is.

Some of students practiced their inferencing skills using this game (just click the link)
