Tuning in1. Have students work in groups of 2 or 3 and give each group a collection of 18 objects.
Have students share the objects between them so that every student will get their fair
share. Once students have shared ask- how do you know you shared fairly? Discuss how
for it to be fair, each person in the group needed to get the same number of objects. Askhow did you share fairly? Demonstrate and discuss the ways that they shared.

During rotations- work with a group

Whole class introUsing NTO 2.54- explain that the ladybirds need to be shared equally among the leaves. Askhow many ladybirds are there? Invite a student to fill in the number of ladybirds. Ask- how many
leaves are we going to share them between? Have a student fill in the number of leaves. Have
another student share the ladybirds between the leaves. Ask- are the ladybirds shared so that
there is the same number on each leaf? Have a student complete the statement by filling in how
many ladybirds are on each leaf. Continue to work through more of the sharing problems,
emphasising that the ladybirds need to be shared equally.
2. Rotations
a. Give the group a bag of teddies to share between them. Have students paste
teddies from BLM 60 onto a sheet of paper to show how they shared their teddies.
b. Chromebooks- sharing (division) activity
c. Give students a pack of tiny teddies. Get out 24 teddies.. pose the problem- there
are 24 teddies in a class and they need to be put into equal sized groups. Work
with a partner to find as many ways that the teddies could be grouped. Record
your results.

Week 1
Kalkadoon Tribe
The Kalkadoons rich cultural heritage has been retained by their descendants in the
preservation of their traditional culture.
The Kalkadoon first came into contact with white pioneer settlers and their cattle in the 1860s.
Due to their rugged and isolated territory they were one of the last tribes in Queensland to
come into contact with settlers.

Battle Mountain

Extra photo folder
The Kalkadoon were tracked 60 miles north of Cloncurry to a place now known as Battle Mountain
where over 900 Kalkadoon lay in wait. The Kalkadoon had chosen this place for the battle to take
place, they had stockpiled spears, boomerangs and rocks and the view from the mountain
overlooked the plain below giving the tactical advantage to the Kalkadoon.

small, doable steps.
Introduce the story graph using fairy tales. (Three billy goats gruff, jack and the beanstalk,

before sharing by moving that many ladybirds onto the leaves.
Whole classPose the problem- I have 28 jelly beans and I want to share them evenly between 4 children. How
many do you think we should put in each cup? Invite a student to place the counters in the cup.

number sentence for what we did. Rub out- shared equally between 4 is 7. Explain to students that
we can write a number sentence for what we did. Rub out- shared equally between and write in
the division symbol and then rub out is and write in the equals symbol. Work through some other

Lesson 1: Wondering about Water - ENGAGE

Wondering about water introducing unit

Discuss different types of water environments brainstorm together to create a list

and make a word wall rivers, dams, streams etc

Use their senses to describe water discuss with the children what water looks,
feels, smells, tastes and sounds like. Students then record these in their Science

Ask students to smell the water and describe the smell. Record their ideas under
the smell subtitle.

Remind students that you should never taste water if you are unsure whether it is
water or not.

Ask students to taste the water and describe the taste. Add descriptions
underneath the taste subtitle.

Ask students to feel the water with their fingertips. Describe what it feels like and
what it is like to touch and record under the touch subtitle.

Visualise water running down a river or waterfakk. Describe how water sounds and
record under the sound subtitle.

Use enlarged copy of the Wonderful Water Resource Sheet: discuss the questions:
Where does water come from?,
What is water used for?
Who or what uses water?
How can I use water responsibly?
Students then complete own copy of the Wonderful Water sheet glue into science


As a whole class have several questions prepared on separate pieces of

paper. Children can use their Wonderful Water sheet to contribute ideas,

rainforests as a tuning in activity. Add some new words to our defintion of the layers of a
Forest floor the ground of the rainforest, with soil and fallen trees and leaves
Shrub layer includes shorter plants like shrubs and young tree saplings growing above
the ground layer, competing to get the most sunlight and food
Understory a layer just below the canopy that includes ferns and vines that start
growing above the ground, on trees; this gives them an advantage over plants that start
growing on the ground because they have that little bit more sunlight
Canopy the top layer of the rainforest where most of the trees have stopped growing,
and where 80% of life in rainforest habitats can be found; it can be as high as 100 metres
above the ground
Emergents describes anything that grows above the canopy, you can see emergents
poking out on top of the canopy layer

Whole class activity using reading strategy
Small group (ability reading based) using reading strategy
Do something to show teacher you have understood and can use strategy.
Some weeks this may be to incorporate comprehension lessons for a smaller group. If one group is
working on comprehension strategies, the other group will be doing an activity to extend reading
strategy or for punctuation/ parts of speech, etc.
Pair of shows:
Create picture in your mind of a pair of shoes and draw them. When drawings are completed, share
them, discussing the differences and similarities between them. Ask students why they have drawn
the shoes in that way? Is it shoes you own or would like to own? Discuss how we all interpret the info
in different ways. If we are not given much information, we fill in the gaps with our own experiences.
Sketch to stretch: As a passage/story is read students sketch their visualisation. In groups they share
their sketches and discuss reasons for their interpretation.
