In literacy this week we have been learning about contractions and wrote newspaper reports on protecting the habitat of polar bears.
Chantelle (P4) “I really enjoyed learning about the polar bears and what we can do to help them”.
Ava (P4) “The contractions puzzle was fun to work out”.
We have also been learning how to play the ukulele.
On our Fantastic Flying Journey we have visited Australia and have been learning about aboriginal art. We created our own designs, they look great.
In writing we have been learning how to write a newspaper report. We have some budding journalists in the class!
We have been learning about sound and created clucking cups.
How does it work?
Pulling the string makes it vibrate and these vibrations produce a faint sound. However in this case the cup and air around it also vibrate so the sound is amplified enough for us to hear it. A bigger amplitude equals a louder sound.
Ava (P4) “I really enjoyed science today. The clucking sounded really funny!”
We celebrated World Book Day a week late but had great fun.
Well done P3/4 for putting such a lot of effort into your costumes and the story boxes.
We have been working very hard on using VCOP in our stories.
Hope everyone is keeping warm and safe during these snow days.
I’d love to see what you’ve been doing, take some photos and bring in to share with everyone.
Once you’ve had fun in the snow why not…..
- read a good book – ready to share for our belated World Book Day
- play a game on Topmarks to practise your maths/numeracy
- write a snow poem
- practise drawing winter trees (remember how we did the Autumn trees)
- do some research on the continents for our Fantastic Flying Journey
Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
