Melbourne Cup Day

We had a lot of fun today!  Our reading, writing and maths was all about the Melbourne Cup!  It’s a teachers dream topic for maths- there’s just so much of it! We also got our creative juices flowing with newspaper and masking tape!  Check out our creations!

Thanks for a fun day Misfits!

    Hi,I just want to say that I liked all of the hats because they were very “colorful”, and making them out of news paper was challenging for me. and I liked it when we had a pick nick it was so fun.

    Hi grade 5/6 F,

    Melbourne Cup day was so much fun. My favourite part of the day was making the hats, the photos above are really good. In maths the game we played was so much fun, I was last at first but then I won. My horses came in 1st and 2nd. I really enjoyed having a picnic with my friends, there was a lot of pink. 🙂

    From Emily 🙂

    Thanks I had lots of fun and some rage but overall I had heaps of fun. I ended up making a top hat it was a great.

    Then the horse racing started my horse was going good then he got tired out so my horse came 3rd last.

    I tried to swap horses with you Ryan but Mrs Fitz said no
    luckily you didn’t or else you wouldn’t of won.

    Dear 5/6F,

    First I am just going to say I don’t know what my horse came on the Melbourne Cup. I think it came like 2nd last or something like that. 🙁
