Stef’s Absence

Dear 3/4 E students,

Unfortunately, I will not be able to run our small group sessions or the open Webex today (09/06/2021).

If you have any questions, please email me ( and I will try my best to get back to you.
My apologies for the inconvenience, I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.


T4, W1 – Maths

Recently we have been learning about addition, subtraction and multiplication and we are about to start on our division unit. Together these are called the FOUR OPERATIONS!

With your new knowledge of the operations let’s play a game…

There are 3 challenge levels – choose the one that you think is the right challenge level for you. In the connect the numbers game, you need to use the numbers in the box to create number sentences using addition, subtraction, multiplication or division – the answer must also be one of the numbers in the box.

LG: I can use my knowledge of the four operations to make connections between numbers.

Term 4, Week 1: Writing 09/10

LG: I can write an interesting ending to a narrative.

A great story needs to follow a structure. The story mountain is easy to remember as it shows each part of the story and where it belongs. Although some stories have more than one problem, they can still follow a similar structure.


The story mountain looks like this…

For today’s lesson, you will be filling in a story mountain with the story details that you already know, and then adding your own ending to the story.


First… Draw a story mountain into your book, make sure to add the subheadings for each part of the story.


Next… Watch the video below and try to add in the parts of the story that are already written. Don’t be afraid to stop the video as you get to each new part so that you can keep track.

Red and Orange Group

Green, Blue and  Purple groups

Then… Complete the story by adding your own creative ending to the plan.


Finally… Go ahead and write an ending to Zathura or Bad Apple!

Term 4, Week 1: Reading 9/10

LG: I can make connections to stories that I read.

We know that making a connection to book will help us to feel more engaged with the story, but do you know what connections you are better at making?

Well, today you are going to find out. We are going to be making connection chains! All you need for this activity is some paper, some coloured pencils, a ruler, a grey lead pencil, some scissors and a glue stick.

First… using your ruler, rule lines running across ways on your page- like this

Next… Cut along each line so that you have strips of paper. Each strip should be wide enough for you to write on.

Then… Read along with ‘All the Places to Love’ and whenever you make a connection, pause the video and write it on a strip of paper.

Finally… colour all of your connections using the labelling system below and then glue them together so they connect and make a connection chain.

Text To Text


Text To Self


Text To World


What type of connections did you make the most?

What connections did you make the least?

Share your results on the OneNote!

Term 4 Week 1: Maths 08/10

Today you will do a maths lesson with your teacher in your small group. Come prepared with your maths book and pencil!

While you are waiting, or after your group, if you have some time, why not play another game of capture the array?

Today you are going to be playing a game. Make sure you have all the materials below :


Watch the video to see the game in action


Start playing the game in your maths grid book.

Remember the aim of the game is to cover your whole page in arrays, and you only have 10 turns to try to do this. Your first roll tells you how many rows you have, the second roll tells you how many are in each row. Then record your array in your book just like in the video.

Once you have completed your 10 turns, see how much of your page you have filled with arrays.

Then, if you’re up for it, you might like to see how many turns it takes for you to fill your whole page!

Term 4, Week 1: Writing 08/10

LG: I can create an information report

First… choose one of the fact sheets below and read through the dot points of researched information

 Read option  Audio option

Next… organise the information into subheadings and write the information as paragraphs.

Here is an example we looked at last term:

For these planet topics, you can come up with any sub-headings that you think are important. These could include things like:

  • Size
  • Location
  • Appearance
  • Climate
  • Features

Then… put your information report together, adding features such as:

  • Pictures
  • Captions
  • Labelled diagrams
  • Maps
  • Bolded topic words

If you would like to, you might want to do a little extra research to add some more information to the dot points you have been given.

Finally… you might like to audio record your presentation. Share your work on OneNote

Term 4, Week 1: Reading 8/10

LG: I can read information and record ideas about the topic
