Folk Dancing

We enjoyed the Folk Dancing Performance today.
Our parents really enjoyed it too.
Our parents danced well too.
Carter and Jessica did an awesome job announcing 
all the dances.

We danced superbly.
We sat quietly.
We listened carefully
We were kind to our partners.



 

 




Fractions

We are enjoying learning about fractions.
  • We can cut things in 1/2.
  • We can colour in 1/2.
  • We can share things in 1/2.


We are learning to: 
  • recognise the symbol for half 1/2 and quarter 1/4
  • share thing equally















We shared food with the Transformer and Teddy. 
They each got 1/2 of the food.


We shared food with the Transformer, Teddy, Sheep and Caterpiller.  They each got 1/4 of the food.
