We've been learning about a new shape. It's called a rhombus, but sometimes it's also known as a diamond. It looks like a square that's been pushed over a bit.

A rhombus
A rhombus has:
  • 4 sides of equal length
  • 4 corners
  • no right angles
For art this afternoon, we needed to make a rhombus with strips of paper and then make it into a picture. We made kites, fish, a dog, Christmas trees and even the Leaning Tower of Pisa! We think they look awesome!

Last week, Mrs N was contacted by a teacher in Canada. Her class wanted to ask us some questions about school in Australia. Today, we emailed them and told them everything they wanted to know. We also asked them some questions, so we can learn a little about Canadian schools. They live in the province of Saskatchewan in Canada. 

Love from The Smarties and Mrs N
