We are very active in our class. We like to exercise each day by dancing and running around at playtime. We have P.E. on Mondays and Thursdays.
Each day we read with sixth class, just before lunch time. We love them coming in to help us read our books. We love to read!
We studied Ernest Shackleton in history and decided to complete some experiments based around his expeditions.
We investigated light in the Arctic, completed experiments with mirrors, designed and made vehicles and first class investigated magnetism (North and South Poles).
Our favourite lesson was our investigation of force and thrust. We were given the materials to make a balloon rocket and we had to work as a team to figure out a way to get the balloon from one side of the string to the other, using all of our supplies!
Take a look and see what fun we had!
We studied a famous artist called Pablo Picasso in September. We learned many interesting facts. Picasso was a cubist painter from Spain. He went to school in Paris. He liked to paint in an abstract way. His paintings are colourful and funny looking. Many of his paintings are portraits although he did paint landscapes also.
Many of Pablo's paintings have been sold for millions of euros. We hope that our paintings will fetch that much too! :)
We made self-portraits and talked about proportion and all the details our face has. We tried our best to include them.
First class experimented with print and primary colours.
A quick insight into our new handwriting scheme in action. Children are doing fantastic work in class and are working extremely hard on letter and number formation-an improvement can be seen already! Well done to all.
