Berry Street in the classroom

0

Posted by Ms Ryan | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on November 4, 2019

This term we have implemented several Berry Street Education Model (BSEM) practices into our classrooms. The first is the “Ready to Learn” scale, where students can indicate how they are feeling about learning. This is done when they arrive at school, and again after the first break. The three choices are “Not quite ready to learn”, “OK to learn” and “Ready to Learn!”   1R has a sunflower theme, as you can see from the photos, and each classroom across Bell PS has their own unique design. This practice has enabled students to indicate how they are feeling and which strategy they require to engage with their learning.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have also instigated Brain Breaks, which are informal, fun breaks in learning to re-energise and re-focus; and Circle Time which allows us to make tangible connections and communication through games and activities.

Our students have eagerly embraced these BSEM initiatives, which we feel have been beneficial in our classrooms.

1K Location

In 1K today we were learning about location in applied maths. We revised left and right and found the location of shapes using a grid. To wrap up our lesson we played a game on the iPad called Arthur Delivers. We needed to deliver different objects such as apples, pencils and bananas to houses using our knowledge of left, right, up and down. We had lots of fun! Here is the link if you would like to play at home: https://pbskids.org/arthur/games/arthur-delivers

Health and Human Development

Today in Health and Human Development we discussed our 5 body safety rules.

These include:

  1.  I am the boss of my body. I have the right to say no if I don’t like how my body is being treated.
  2.  Private parts are covered by clothing and we don’t touch or play games with them.
  3.  No one should be asking me to keep a secret – especially if it makes me sad or scared.
  4.  Using the correct words for private parts. They’re not funny or weird – everyone has them.
  5.  I know five people I can talk to if ever I feel sad, scared, or nervous about anything – especially body safety. If someone breaks the rules I need to tell someone who can help me. Even if I was too scared to tell at first – it’s never too late, and I won’t be in trouble.

We then labelled our Safety Network.

Today in Health and Human Development we discussed body boundaries and private parts. We explored and labelled the parts of the body and discussed as a group, physical differences and similarities between our bodies. We know that we all have our own body boundaries or body bubble and our own private parts.

Posted by felicitylittle | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on August 28, 2019

Today in Maths the children learnt that volume is how much space an object takes up. The children were challenged to design an everyday object that would be featured in the Land of Cubes. They estimated how many blocks they would need to create the object and then construct it using the blocks. At the end of the session students engaged in a learning walk to see some of the fantastic cube creations including; tables, chairs, toy owls and tissue boxes.

This week, Grade 4T joined 1B for a buddy maths session. Students learned a new game called ‘Pot of Gold’. The game enabled students to practise their skills of estimating and subitising, as well as explore probability with 20 sided dice!

We had such a wonderful time!
