Fitness and Stamina

Today we were learning about fitness and stamina with Mrs McLean. She was teaching us about the importance of stamina in all sports and how to do this. We did a really cool workout which was personalised to our names.

We are learning all about the history of cinema and film in P6. We are looking at the creation of film and the very first moving images ever recorded. So far we have looked at Journey to the Moon – it was one of the first films to be very creative and explored how film could be used to tell a story.

Today we were making thaumatropes in class. Thaumatropes were used in the late 1800s to create a moving image – people were amazed at this at that time!

We drew two circles, each with an image on them. The two images should be something similar, or related, such as a fish and water.

 

We cut out the two circles and put a length of string in between them, before gluing them together, with the string inside.

 

When we twisted, or rolled, the string between our fingers it created an illusion of the two images being in the same place – the fish was now in the water.

 

This led to further developments in moving images, which we will continue exploring after the October break.

Our Learning this Week

We have been problem solving before maths as a starter.

There are different type of questions.

We do this to start our brain in the morning.

In writing we have been creating our own story’s.

In the nursery they have sound bags that we have been using to create our stories.

In the sound bags were different objects that all begin with the same letter.

For example in the E bag there was an egg and elephant.

Then we went to the nursery to read the story’s.
