We’ve been making bookmarks to sell at our St Patrick’s Day fair. Here they are all finished and ready to sell!
This term we are learning about leaders. We have named some leaders that we could think of and sorted them into groups. Each pair of students has grouped them according to their own ideas and just need to finish the question: What is a leader?
We have as a class started to explore two leaders – Malcom X and Mama Miti.
We have named some questions that we want to ask ourselves as we read about various leaders. When we have finished we will be able to say what we think about leaders and leadership, and how these people make a difference in our world – both big and small.

At the moment you are working on leaving quality comments. You have explored what these might look like and you looked at the slideshow and now you know what is expected. You can visit the Quality Commenting page and remind yourself about what is expected.
You are to leave one quality comment on our class blog and one quality comment on a student blog or another class blog. Remember to paste that second comment into a google doc titled Quality commenting.
One class blog you could visit is the Learning Lizards in Australia. Some of you might remember Miss Fraser from last year as we shared a monster activity with her last year’s class. This year she has a different age group. See can you find out about who she is teaching this year.
This week in maths we have been thinking about one million. What does one million look like?
We made a square metre and then a metre cube. We looked at a one centimetre cube and worked out how many 1cm cubes it would take to make a 1m cube.
Can you remember how we worked it out? Make a comment to let us know.
We also estimated how long one million seconds would take to pass. Can you remember how we estimated to get some idea?
Can you use a calculator to work out exactly how long it would take one million seconds to pass?
What else can you tell us about one million?
Apologies if your one is not here, I forgot to scan some of them.
