It was a very hot day in our part of Australia today! The forecast was for 42 degrees celcius (107f), but we'll have to watch the News tonight to see what it got to. We made sure we drank lots and lots of water. We wished we were in the Northern Hemisphere where it is snowing!
We've done lots and lots of writing today! First thing this morning, in Daily Writing, the topic that we picked out of our writing ideas box, was a picture of a pot of gold. This was an exciting subject to write about! Here is Meg's story:
A Pot of Gold
One day, I saw a rainbow and I followed it and I found a pot of gold. We were really rich! We got a lot of stuff and we didn't waste any money and we really thought about it. We had a lot of fun, but a leprechaun jumped out and said "This is all my gold!"
Our other writing activity today was starting the planning stage of our photo stories. The other day, we walked around our school, looking for places we'd like to include in our stories. Today, we drew them on our planning sheet. Some of us had time to start our draft stories too. Here are Ella, Alex and Joel's photo plans.
In Maths, we learned about halves. We noticed that sometimes we need to really study the shape to work out what the fairest and best way to halve something is.
We answered some more questions from our Kentucky friends, about our lunches. We also asked them some questions! We wanted to know what is in a quesadilla and we asked about corn dogs. We're going to be sending them some Vegemite. They are going to send us something to try too!
