This week we brainstormed as many kinds of food as we could think of in small groups. Then we cut out all the words and sorted the food into categories.
Charlie: Today my Show & Tell is coconut milk. The coconut is from a tree. And the coconut is from a coconut tree. The people take the coconut and they squeeze the coconut and then they pour it into this. You can use this for cooking but not drinking.
Ben: Why is it called coconut milk then? Milk is a liquid and it is usually for drinking.
Ms Leah: What country is the coconut milk from?
Ben: Check the package.
Andy: Can I see it?
Irfan: Why does it have so many words on the package?
Charlie: I don’t know.
Andy: That one is the date. It shows you when you can still use it by.
Ben: And that's what is inside. The ingredients.
Andy: Oh and here. It is a product of Malaysia. It's from Malaysia.
Irfan: Yes, I thought so. It's from Malaysia.
Andy: And the writing is Malay.
Andy: So first mix the wheat flour and other ingredients to make the dough.
Put the dough into the machine.
Press the dough into different thickness and cut the dough into noodles.
Dry the noodles.
Pull and pack the noodles.
Buy, cook and eat the noodles.
My mom drew this.
And the last thing I want you to do is scan the QR code on the book. Ms Florence, can you scan the QR code on the book? Or I can do it myself. I’m just scanning the QR code.
Wait a moment.
They are going to let the dough relax.
And now I’m going to show you. And this is the noodles they make.
Charlie: Are you going to eat it one day?
Olivia: No, his mother needs to cook it and eat it. You cannot eat it like this.
Ben: Instead of saying not eating it ‘like this’, you can say not eating it ray.
Andy: You can feel it. Can you make a circle?
Ray: It feels bumpy.
Olivia: There is a cover so I cannot feel it.
Ben: It feels different than the noodles you eat. This is hard. When you eat them, they feel soft. (Inquire)
Irfan: Where did you buy it?
Charlie: Where did you buy the book?
Ms Leah: Where are the noodles from?
Andy: Singapore. It says product of Singapore.
Ben: You can look at the map first. It shows where Chile and Singapore are. The food I brought in is from Chile and we bought it in Singapore. It’s even further than Singapore to United States.
Ben: It says product of Chile. Any questions?
Olivia: What is the case from?
Ben: Oh, it’s from the blueberries. The map is to show you where the blueberries came from.
Irfan: Where did you buy it?
Ben: I don’t know. I’m assuming my dad bought them. Probably from Giant or somewhere.
The blueberries come from a plant.
Today we conducted an experiment. We wanted to see what would happen if we put full cream in a jar, sealed it tightly, and then shook it vigorously.
After reading the experiment's method, we made our predictions and explained our reasoning. Here are some of our thoughts:
It will change colours
It will explode
Then we carefully, yet 'vigorously' conducted the experiment.
The results? It was butter! Yummy butter!
This week we went on a field trip to Hayes Dairy Farm. We learned about how goats are reared, watched the milking process and learned about some of the systems of distribution.
Afterwards, our favourite part was we got a chance to feed and pet the goats.
This week we visited the Grade 5 Market Day. There were lots of great services, food and games on offer with all proceeds going to charity!
This week in Math we have been learning about bar graphs. We surveyed the class about their favourite art forms and made our own graphs. After that we created our own surveys.
Andy: I have a torch. This is a kind of torch. And this is a kind of a board. And this torch can actually draw on this board.
Sit in a circle. So if you see? And then you can turn on the torch and try drawing something. Like this.
It’s like, you just scribble around with the tip of the torch touching the board. And actually there’s two pieces. It’s supposed to be like this.
And there is one more thing I want to show you.
Ben: Oh, it makes the pattern?
Andy: It’s not a pattern.
Andy: Okay, I’ll show you.
Ben: It looks like the Earth.
Andy: It’s the Moon.
Charlie: Wow, it’s so beautiful.
Olivia: Can we try to draw on here? Yah, here to here.
Andy: Okay, start from here.
Amelia: Which way are we going to go Andy?
Ben: What is that Andy?
Andy: It’s a star.
Charlie: Justin, did you want to try?
Olivia: I have a question. When is this gone?
Andy: 10 seconds.Only if the lights are on. If it’s this dark, it will take longer than that.
Olivia: Ms. Leah, would you like to try?
Ms Leah: I would love to.
Andy: Ms Florence, would you like to try?
Olivia: And Ms Adella, you can try after Ms Florence.
Ms Florence: Where did you get that, Andy?
Olivia: In China?
Andy: No Toys R Us, I think.
Olivia: Oh, really? I want to buy one too!
