This week in Room 16 we have been focusing our learning on our new chosen topic, the 1960s!
We have been exploring popular fashion from this decade and using our knowledge to create our own 60s inspired designs and outfits, it’s fair to say that go-go boots and turtle neck jumpers have became a fashion staple in the class.
We have also been learning about important figures from the 60s focusing on Martin Luther King Jr., we have watched the world famous ‘I have a dream’ speech and read the Big Dreams Little People story which highlights MLK’s journey to becoming the influential character we know today.
We used our new understanding of equity and equality in society and used this to think what our dreams for the world are, some ideas we discussed were no war, stop smoking, to eat healthy, and to have safe homes. We transferred these ideas to our ‘I have a dream’ clouds, which have been displayed outside the class for other classes to see.
We have also completed our narrative writing pieces after weeks of hard work. We have shared our feedback with each other for each narrative story entry and I think there may be some emerging best sellers in the future years to come!
For maths we have been continuing with our topic of money, which has been enhanced through our class bank. Children have had the opportunity to earn, save, and spend the classes play money, which has been a huge success in aiding children’s understanding of identifying coins and finding change of amounts.
We wish you a lovely October break from Room 16.
