Money/Finance Week

Last week it was money and finance week across our whole school. We had visitors from the high school, who taught us about exchange rates and currency. As well as this Mrs Scott and Mrs Lawson came to explain how money is used in our school office. They left us a budgeting challenge to complete, where we looked at the stationery brochures to try and buy enough stationery for our school. It really was quite a challenge!

Cooperative Learning

We have been doing some cooperative learning to learn about Earthquakes. It allows everyone in a home-team to become an ‘expert’ about a part of the topic before each member of the home-team comes back together to teach each other what they have learned. It’s a great way to take responsibility for our learning! img_6904 img_6905 img_6906
