Over the last couple of weeks we have been enjoying devoting most of our days to our whole school Australia topic.
On week one lots of thinking was involved during our research lesson on note taking and then again to create a leaflet on an Australian animal to educate British tourists when holidaying in Australia. We all worked so hard and enjoyed choosing our own book and type of animal to study! Well done to Allister, Katie and Struan for being selected by the class as star writers and writing incredibly interesting and detailed reports. In ICT we are in the process of using Publisher to turn our reports into professional looking leaflets.
Last week we build on our note taking skills when listening to and watching a clip on traditional Aboriginal games. We then choose a game and worked in a team to compare resources we have today, adapting it before planning and teaching it to the rest of the class. During our sharing session we all thought that Oscar and Jasiu demonstrated particularly excellent leadership skills. We used our P.E. lesson to evaluate what we thought we had been doing well in co-operative learning and also suggested next steps. We did this for leadership skills too!
We are all looking forward to one final week of Aaaaaaaaaustralia!!!
