We've been learning about fractions! Watch the slideshow below to see how we put our knowledge of halves and quarters into practice to cut, spread jam or butter, and eat our pikelets. * Pause on Slide 3 to watch video

Narrative Writing

In Term 3 we had our first learning about narrative writing. Narrative stories are made up stories, and we used Fairy Tales as an example.  We began by looking at Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We broke down the story into parts to understand all the elements of a narrative: title, orientation, characters, setting, problem and solution.  Then we worked together to create our own narrative as a class. We practiced coming up with ideas and drawing or writing them into our planning template, and then using our plan to write the story in sentences. Next everyone had a chance to come up with their own narrative story. After making a plan for their writing, some children wrote their stories and some are transcribed from oral storytelling.  Enjoy!
