Some of our followers on Twitter will know that the News4U Podcast Group was invited by Nordic Horizons to ask some questions of a group of important people coming to the Arctic Circle Forum. We made a film which you can see here. http://www.vimeo.com/nordichorizons
They were so pleased with it , they asked us to come and help them at the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh. So we came along on two days, we saw Nicola Sturgeon ( she left before we could interview her ) . We recorded lots of interviews with all sorts of people; professors, authors, people from WWF, Icelanders, Greenlanders, Sami and even architects. It was a great learning experience, we learnt about global warming, the Arctic and how other people live. We took lots of pictures and tweeted. The Scottish Government re-tweeted us. We are also grateful for Mary and Stephen our parent helpers.
P3b have been discussing all of the things we have learned this week.
We have now completed our background artwork using oil pastels and a green wash for the woodland and have now started to make our display. Tayler
In science we have learned about the sorting different types of animals and now feel more confident at this. We’ve also sorted leaves into different piles and worked out which tree they came from. We know that their are simple and compound leaves. We enjoyed going out into the garden to search for different leaves.(Callie and Steffan)
I writing we drew a picture thinking about what Roundabout Land looks like. We used our senses to describe the setting of this land and next week we hope to use this to write our own setting of Roundabout land. (Tayler and Robert)
In maths we have been learning about area and converting cm into mm. Some of us now know how to do this all by ourselves.
Some of us have also shared our learning with the rest of the school at today’s assembly. Well done!
As you can see lots of learning has taken place this week.
