Today is our last day of remote learning! Hooray! I can’t wait to see everyone’s smiling faces on Tuesday next week.

You have all done such an amazing job. I know it’s been challenging at times, but every single one of you has had such a positive attitude and worked so hard. I have loved all the emails, pictures, blog comments and discussions about all the learning you have been doing.

I think we all owe your parents and careers a really big thank you for their help and support with your learning this term as well. Make sure you give them a hug and say thanks for all their help.

When you get to school on Tuesday, things might be a little different to what you’re used to. There is a note to read with your parents to help you understand what to expect on your first day back. Please make sure you read it carefully! I will also go through it with you in our class meeting.

See you all at 9:30!

Learning Goal: I can make text to world connections as I read.

Thanksgiving is a special day celebrated in the United States of America and Canada. This region of the world is called NORTH AMERICA.


Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and the second Monday of October in Canada. It was first celebrated as a day of giving thanks for the growing of a healthy harvest after a long famine. Nowadays, it is a celebration that most American’s undertake to show thanks for all of the great events and things that have happened during the year. It is a time that family and friends get together and show gratitude. It is a traditional holiday and one of the most important days of the year for lots of North Americans.

To learn a little bit more about where this celebration came from, view the following video:

After watching the video, make some text to world connections by answering these questions:

  • What do you celebrate that might be similar to thanksgiving?
  • What similarities did you notice between American history and Australian history?
  • What other countries were travelled to by the English?
  • What things are you grateful for in your life?

Now that you know about the American celebration of THANKSGIVING, undertake this craft based word activity.

“Grow” a Thanksgiving Tree

First make a list of all the things that you are thankful for.

What you need:

  • Twigs with several small branches
  • paper (to draw your leaves)
  • a jar or paper cup
  • scissors
  • large paper or Styrofoam cups
  • playdoh/blue tac/clay
  • string or ribbon
  • pens or markers
  • a hole punch or scissors

What to do:

  1. If possible, take a nature walk in your yard and collect some leaves that are different shapes to use for templates. Otherwise just draw some leaves on a piece of paper. Gather some straight twigs that have at least three branches. The twigs can be up to 40cm tall.
  2. Next, decorate your cup or jar using markers or construction paper and glue. Fill each cup with enough modelling clay/playdoh/blue tac to support the twigs that you have collected. Now “plant” your Thanksgiving Trees by sticking the twigs into the cups.
  3. Then, trace the leaf templates on the paper and cut them out. Make sure the you have coloured in the leaves so your tree will be nice and colourful. Now using the list from your reading lesson, write one thing on each leaf for which you are thankful.
  4. Lastly,  tie the leaves to the trees with the string or ribbon.
  5. Take a photo of your thanksgiving tree and send it in an email!
  6. Leave your thanksgiving tree in a place that will catch people’s attention so that it inspires them to think about the things that they are grateful for.


It’s NOGGLE time. That is, Boggle, except with numbers.

Today you can either play Place Value Noggle or Number Sentence Noggle

Place Valve Noggle

Activity 1:

Try and create a 4 digit number using this grid:

Number boggle grid

Start on any digit and move along to choose 3 other digits. You can only move along the lines.

Then create your number using these digits in any order.

For example, on the grid below I selected 7, 6, 5 and 0.

I was able to make 7,650 and 6,750 and 5,076 and 6,075 and 7,065

Now use the grid to see how many 4 digit numbers you can come up with.

Number Sentence Noggle

The aim is to create as many number sentences as you can using the numbers provided.

Activity 2: Select any numbers from the table below and make a number sentence.

For example, you could use 5, 6 and 11 to make 5 + 6 = 11.

Activity 3: Select three adjacent numbers and any operation (+, -, x, ÷) to create a number sentence

For example, you could use 15, 3 and 12 to make 15 – 3 = 12. You cannot use cannot use 5, 1 and 6 to make 5 + 1 = 6 because the numbers are not adjacent.

Friday Fun

Today is our last day of remote learning – next week we will be back in the classroom and back in school uniform. If you could design a new school uniform what would it look? Use clothing or dress ups or anything you can find to create a crazy MPPS school uniform! Take a photo, or video, of you doing your best fashion show runway walk and poses to share with the teacher!
