Harmony Day Activity - Origami boxes

Image
Today as part of our Harmony Day activities, we made origami boxes. Some of the students were having so much fun they wanted to continue making them at home.  Here is the video we watched to help make the boxes......


This video came from the origami fun website, which also has a page with step by step instructions to make the box and other fun origami pieces.

Have fun

Our Learning
This week we get back into persuasive writing and are writing our own text on a topic of our choice.  This is an opportunity to practice what we have been learning before we complete a hot task independently to show what we have learned.   In Maths, we are learning about fractions and in Science we have been exploring why there are the phases of the moon .

Parent Teacher Interviews
I will hold interviews during Monday to Thursday of week 9.  I have placed an interview schedule on the class room door.  Please place your name against an allotted time.
