This weeks foci: Maths Online and Historical Placemats

Due to lack of working laptops at school...I have requested students complete 20 minutes of Maths The tasks given to each student are highly individualised and help fill in the gaps and to also extend students. Online tasks each night and/or placemat work. Students without net access can do the Online work from 8-30 until 8-55 before the oficial day starts (they will have computer priority) and during silent reading for twenty minutes.  Fire drill, which took out the whole middle part of the day meant  both cold damp feet and that placemat work was unfortunately not covered today...hopefully tomorrow morning. Students did a great job with the unexpected fire drill and behave exceptionally well during the looooong wait on the school oval. We did fit in a great activity on triangles and looking at the different types and modelled the fact that the angles of any triangle add up to 180 degrees. Battle bunnies now nearly also finished ready to trial a simple class animation.
