Australia Day 
On January 26 each year, we come together as a nation to 
celebrate how good it IS to be Australian. We also identify 
some of the great things about our country. 
We also remember Indigenous Australians and 
acknowledge them as the original cwners of the land, 
before British settlement in 1788. 
On Australia Day, some people from other countries who 
currently enjoy living in Australia, become Australian 
citizens. This takes place at special citizenship ceremonies. 
Most people in Australia celebrate Australia Day by 
attending one of the many public events in their local 
community. These include concerts, fireworks, awards 
ceremonies and fundraising events. 
On Australia Day, people like to display Australian flags 
outside their houses, or on their cars. It is a wonderfu day 
to spend time with family and friends. Many people enjoy 
a traditional Australian barbeque on Australia Day.

personal eronoons 
Personal pronouns are words such as: you, our, we 
and us. Use personal pronouns to make the reader 
feel like you are talking directly to them. 
We have to work

Machine generated alternative text:

Write three arguments about the picture that include personal pronouns.



Task 3: Underneath your argument paragraphs from yesterday in your OneNote, Remote Learning-Writing-Week 5-Persuasive page write your conclusion paragraph.

Remember to use personal pronouns and address your audience! (You want to convince kids to stop using plastic straws)

Your conclusion paragraph will need to start with a conclusion opener, restate the side you are arguing, summarise the arguments in different words and include a call to action! 


Learning Intention

To find the lowest/least common multiple of a pair of numbers.

Success Criteria

I can identify multiples of numbers

I can explain what lowest/least common multiple means.

I can find the lowest/least common multiple of a pair of numbers.

Example from video

Lowest Common Multiple of 3 and 4

To find the lowest common multiple of 2 numbers you first have to write down the multiples of each number.

Multiples of 3 = 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24

Multiples of 4 = 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32

As you can see 12 and 24 are common multiples of 3 and 4 but we are looking for the lowest therefore the answer is 12.

LCM of 3 and 4 = 12


Find the LCM of the following numbers and set out your work like the example.

  1. LCM of 2 and 3

Multiples of 2:

Multiples of 3:

LCM of 2 and 3 =

  1. LCM of 4 and 6

Multiples of 4:

Multiples of 6:

LCM of 4 and 6 =

 3.      LCM of 3 and 5

Multiples of 3:

Multiples of 5:

LCM of 3 and 5 =

  1. LCM of 2 and 6

           Multiples of 2:

           Multiples of 6:

           LCM of 2 and 6 =

  1. LCM of 4 and 10

           Multiples of 4:

           Multiples of 10:

           LCM of 4 and 10 =

Answers the questions below in exactly the same way as you have answered the questions above.

  1. LCM of 4 and 7
  1. LCM of 5 and 6
  1. LCM of 6 and 10
  1. LCM of 5 and 11
  1. LCM of 6 and 8
