Literacy and Numeracy Week

 This week was National Literacy and Numeracy  Week. It is a week about getting involved in and having fun with Literacy and Numeracy. It is also a time to celebrate Literacy and Numeracy in our classrooms and in our lives. Here is some of the Literacy and Numeracy we have been involved in this week:

Poetry

This week we were learning to write Cinquain poems. Here is what our teacher groups came up with:

Shiny, valuable

Buying, shopping, trading

Spending money to survive

Orange, Optomistic Otters

Dessert

Delicious, scrumptious

Surprising, gobbling, mouth-watering

Moon

Shiny, rocky

Rotating, glowing, reflecting

Brightly in the sky

Elephant

Big, muscly

Stomping, spraying, swaying

One very smart animal

Telling the Time

This week we have been working on telling the time to the nearest one minute. Telling the time on analogue and digital clocks and comparing the two is hard but we used some games to try and help us. Here is the Middles practicing telling the time through games.
