On Friday we made some tealight holders by re-using glass jars we had been collecting. We covered them with squares of tissue paper and a thin layer of watered down glue. We added some sequin sparkles around the top to make them look even more special. Keep looking out for more recycled art over the coming weeks!
This Superstar liked them so much she went home and made her own!
We have been learning how to draw bar graphs correctly from information we have gathered in a table. Today we used a computer program called 2 Graph to display information we had gathered in our class surveys.
We also looked at how we could display the same information in different ways such as pie charts and line graphs.
Today we brainstormed what rubbish is and made a class mind map. We will be using our mind map to ask questions and research what really is rubbish and what we can do to reduce, re-use, recycle and compost our waste.
On Monday, we continued to make our video about Arbroath for our wiki. A small group of us visited Gayfield, Pleasureland and the Signal Tower Museum. Unfortunately, everything seems to be closed or empty at the moment but we are doing our best!
Yesterday was World Book Day. We were able to come to school dressed as book characters. We had a special box of books delivered to our classroom which we could choose to read from all week. The whole school has been taking part in a sponsored reading project to try to raise money for more reading books for the school.
We made 3D collages of people reading for a new display outside the ICT suite.
