Year 2's investigation about the properties of materials led them to a conclusion that depending on the force applied, the objects either changed shape or stayed the same. Squashing, bending, twisting and stretching were some of the actions used on objects like play dough, sponges, straws, pipe cleaners and towels.
Year 2 were very excited to share their Maths Week Homework, 'fraction games', with Year 1 during 'golden time'. They had a fantastic time sharing the fun and learning about 'fractions' in such an entertaining way. Year 1 took part in playing board games and puzzles. They loved the timed fraction game in which children had to match picture cards to the right fraction. The children have worked very hard. Well done!
Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed a creative afternoon during Maths Week. They chose to paint 2-D shapes keeping in mind patterns and sequences. Some children decided to make a sequence of colours whilst others opted for a spotty pattern. The lovely rectangles, squares, triangles and pentagons have been put together to make a mobile as a display in the classroom. Fabulous work Year 2!!
Film festival gave the opportunity to schools to annually celebrate film and education. Thus some children from HPS were selected from a hat to go watch Finding Dory on Friday morning. Through this program children learn to watch, critique, review and make films.
Year 6 enjoyed using laptops to play fraction jeopardy! The more difficult the questions the more points they received. Year 6 are officially fraction professors!
