6th class are VERY excited about our new classroom rewards system. The children all got their own debit card and can earn money by completing their classroom job, as well as getting bonuses for working hard, being kind to their friends and for being enthusiastic about learning. 6th class scan the QR code on their debit card which enables them to update their bank accounts each Friday. The best part is they can either save up their money to buy class vouchers, or they can buy stickers or treats. We are working on saving our money so that we will be able to pay table tax when the time comes.
This fortnight, we have been working really hard on percentages. We have learned how to convert fractions to percentages and to decimals… and back again! The next step is to put our percentages work into practice and find out how to find a percentage of a number, and then either take it away or add it on to make a percentage increase or decrease. Here’s the link to what we are doing in class. I will also add a video which explains how to find a percentage of a number. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AL0-0f9azNo
Stay tuned for some pictures of the finished products!
