In Primary 3/4 LS we have been very busy this week.
In Numeracy and Maths we have been learning to identify the difference between am and pm. We have changed our group names for Maths to different types of rainforest animals. The cheetahs and sloths have been learning to record 12 hour time in am and pm. The jaguars have been learning to identify 24 hour times and making links to 12 hours. Miss Stewart gave us an event that happens during a full day and we had to use our am and pm card to show Miss Stewart whether that event takes place in am or pm. I enjoyed this task because I liked having the cards (Layla).
In literacy we are learning to identify the main points of a text. We had to draw and label a picture of one of the main characters using the information from our reading book. I drew my character Danny from Danny the Champion of the World using the main points of the text. I used words like helpful because he helps his dad out at the garage (Nate). I enjoyed drawing Mr Mortlock from Beyond the Door. I drew him with his red glasses and his mustache wearing his black suit (Mac).
This week we have finished our scripts for our group presentations and we have been learning to read with expression. We were standing up with our presentation on the iPads and practising our speeches. I found this challenging because we don’t feel very confident yet (Jessica, Anika).
In IDL we have been learning to identify the different layers of the rainforest. We have been making a display on the wall outside our classroom. It has been really fun and exciting because we used lots of different materials to make a rainforest. It was challenging getting the sizes correct and working out how much materials we needed to cut out. We just started cutting up resources without knowing where we were going to put them (Eilidh D). So far the display is going well, we have got 5 trees reaching the emergent layer and we have the mud on the forest floor (Nate and Layla).
Enjoy your October holidays.
