The writing focus this term is on personal writing in different formats. We have begun with personal recounts about events in school such as the Halloween Party and have moved on to diary entries of the 3 day weekend. We will move on to write postcards and Christmas cards and descriptions of ourselves and our families.
MATHS - We have started this term with some work on displaying and interpreting different types of graphs, charts and diagrams: including bar graphs, pictographs, pie charts and carroll diagrams. We will go on to extend our knowledge of shapes, different units of measurement and using expressions and equations.
Technology - The P1-4 class has started a topic of technology learning, developing their problem solving and team-working skills to construct models that meet certain criteria. We have begun by waterproofing shoe boxes to make them float then used what we learned from this to improve their buoyancy by adding additional items such as bubble wrap, bottles and polystyrene so that our shoe box ships can carry a heavy load. Of course we had to test our models in the water! Click here for photos.
