Literacy – This week we have really enjoyed using the netbooks for our writing. We found this was very useful and we are excited to use them again to help us for writing!

Literacy – This week in literacy we continued focusing on retelling a story. We watched a video and used a comic strip with pictures form the video to help us plan. Then, we wrote some great writing pieces.

Numeracy – This week we were continued to revise place value with some Christmas themed activities.  We particularly enjoyed the cutting and sticking Christmas jigsaw task!

This is the last class blog of the year, so I hope that everybody has a lovely Christmas break and a happy new year!

This week in P3/4M

Literacy – This week we based our writing on watching the advert “Mog’s Calamity”. We watched the video a few times and used a story board to help us plan retelling the story.  After, we used our plan to tell the reader the different events that happened.

Numeracy – This week we did some numeracy rotations based on number sequences. We really enjoyed the range of activities which included a card game, an iPad game, and filling in the gaps of the sequences.

IDL – This week we worked on our group working skills. Each group picked a country to research about how Christmas is celebrated there. We were able to work well in our groups and find out some really interesting facts!

Since it has been Halloween we have been doing a lot of work with a Halloween theme!

Literacy – We wrote some spooky stories in writing this week. We focused on adjectives and how we can make our writing more exciting by using them.
