Another busy day for P3, their first task was to create a set of questions or a quiz for a friend to check their understanding of their own story book, using questioning openers. Then it was imaginative writing where they had to create a story with an interesting setting. The teacher went over the importance of adjectives and what they are used for. Their story had to be about being transported from the classroom to Ancient Egypt, and the pupils came up with descriptive, exciting journeys that involved mummies, crypts and pyramids! Great imagination used here.
The maths input today was time related, and I assisted a small group of children learning their quarter and half past times.
As it was ‘Safer Internet Day’, an activity that led a discussion on what things the pupils like to do online ensued. The pupils talked about the various fun aspects of being online, but also were reminded of the importance of not disclosing any personal information online, and they were given a task to create their own online ‘safe’ profile.
I’m looking forward now to my 3 week block placement.
