This week we have all been in the Christmas spirit.
In Maths we have been learning to identify and describe 2D and 3D shapes. We got put into groups to build 3D shapes using magnetic polydrons. We had to describe the shapes to Miss Stewart or Miss Leeson using words like, faces, vertices and edges. I liked it when we each were given a shape and we had 30 seconds to describe it (Michael).
In Literacy this week, Miss Ritchie came in to our class and she talked about our class library. She helped us sort our books out in to different genres. We had piles of comedy, science, mystery, adventure, horror, rhymes and comics. I hope this helps keep our library tidy and allow us to choose what we want to read (Amy. Anabia).
In our RME IDL, we decided to change the way we will display our work. We are not creating a spark video anymore, instead we are creating an interactive display board. We drew pictures related to our festivals and we have cut them out keeping a flap. Underneath the flap we have written down the facts we have found out about the festival. I have drawn a menorah which is a candler holder. Jewish people light the candles during Hanukkah. Currently Jewish people are lighting their candles as Hanukkah started on the 2nd of December and will finish on the 10th of December (Jessica, Jamie). Soon we are moving on to learning about Christianity.
In our enterprise topic, we finished our product. We came up with a name for our jars called ‘Christmas Cosy Candle Jars’, then we decided how much we were going to sell them for. We then sold our jars at the Christmas Fayre and we only have 3 jars left. Hurry if you want to purchase one!
Since our last blog we have had 3 children who have ran their first marathon. Super job, Charlie, Michael and Layla!
Polly from Butterfly Conservation Scotland came in to deliver our first workshop on munching caterpillars. We learned about the life cycle of moths and butterflies. We went outside to find food for caterpillars, adult butterflies and moths. We realised that our school grounds does not have a lot of food. We are going to plant more food for caterpillars, butterflies and moths. It was very fun and we are very excited for Polly coming back (Alyxs)!
We hope you enjoyed reading our blog.
