This week in numeracy we have been working more on our fractions. This week focusing on finding 1/4 of a shape or a number. The boys and girls have picked this up really well, but we will continue to focus on this further in the coming weeks, to practice this further.
In science this week we looked at Recognising different states like solids, liquids and gases. In our writing work we have been looking at extending our sentences using colourful semantics. This weeks focus was on why? We extended our sentences using ‘because’ and ‘to’ as a connective to explain why.
With Mrs Angus the boys and girls have been learning a Scots poem. They created a prop picture to use when reciting their poems. Mrs Angus was very impressed by how well they have been learning these.
Continuing our Scots theme we created some tartan by weaving paper. This was a little bit tricky and required perseverance. They have been put up to display and are adding a real pop of colour to the corridor.
It was very difficult to choose a star of the week this week, but this week it was awarded to Taylor. For showing great enthusiasm to learning and always trying her best.
Last weeks star was Dylan for making a really positive start to the new year.
I’m sure it will be another busy week this week with lots of learning continuing within our classroom.
