The Hungry Caterpillar

Middles Idol, 2012

Each year The Middles invite the Preps and Juniors to attend the ‘Middles Idol’.

Each Middle Department class nominates two representatives from their class to perform a song in front of a large audience of teachers, students and even some parents. 

It requires much confidence to do this and it is usually the first time many girls and boys have ever performed such an act.

This year the standard of talent was extremely high. 

Estelle’s performance of Birdie’s song, ‘Skinny Love’ is inspiring. 

Please leave a comment for her and congratulate her for entertaining us.

Arrays for Multiplication

Our first unit for this term is multiplication. We are working on arrays to start us off. Rows and columns, rows and columns… Lots of games, lots of grids and lots of counting ( but nevet by 1′s)!
Last year we took a short tour of our classroom and staff room. We discovered that the world is full of arrays. We can count the rows or columns easily. We are practising our number facts. Here are some familiar places.

The Multiplication Applett is great for practising our number facts. Click on the link to try.
