Well, what a great week of learning!
I have been so impressed with the children's writing, this week. They were given the opportunity to plan and write their own narrative. After watching a video to inspire them, they have all gone away and used their imaginations to write their own story. We will be continuing with these on Monday and I cannot wait to read their complete, edited versions!
In maths we have been looking at weight in kilograms and gram. We collected and order the weights of different foods and then presented this data in a bar chart. We then went on to interpret this data. We have all done a great job with this!
In Geography, we have been looking at the tropical regions-we found the Equator, the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn on a world map, in our atlases. We then used this to draw them on our own map of the world and this helped us to locate the countries that are located in these Tropical regions. Next lesson, we will research which foods come from these tropical regions.
In computing, we are really progressing with out simulation of a toy, using the Scratch programme. After designing our toys a few weeks back, with an input and output function, we are doing our best at using coding to simulate our toy designs electronically. Some of us have added sound and movement to our toys!
We are also trying our best to fulfil our Advent promises and have been looking at the symbolism of the advent wreath, in our RE. We are all trying our pest to prepare for Christ's birth by 'proclaiming God's love'.
Next week, we will be designing and creating our instruments in our D & T lesson. If you haven't already, please bring either a shoebox, tissue box, cereal box etc, into school before Wednesday. Also, if you have any cardboard tubing (not toilet roll) to bring in, that would be great!
