Room 21 Happenings

May 10, 2024 by Miss Napier | 0 comments

We’ve been very busy in Room 21 so here’s a snapshot of what we’ve been up to over the last two weeks!

We began our Natural Disasters topic by helping to plan out what we wanted to say, make, write and do for our learning. So far, we’ve learned about the earth’s layers, tectonic plates and how these can cause earthquakes and tsunamis. While we were learning about earthquakes, we had the challenge to create a structure made of cocktail sticks and marshmallows. This structure had withstand ‘violent’ shaking on a tray of jelly! This was a lot trickier than we thought but we soon realised that wider bases and creating foundations to sink into the jelly helped!

We’ve started ‘Morning Clubs’ from 9-9.30am too. This is where we get to choose which ‘zone’ to sit at each morning and take part in the activities based at that station. We were given free reign to plan out, organise and move desks and chairs into the following zones that we chose: Playdoh zone, Construction Zone, Arts & Crafts Zone, Games Zone and the ‘Anything Goes’ Zone. This table has had crocheting, knitting and Chromebooks at it so far! At these clubs we are always developing our meta-skills.

In maths, we’ve been looking at 2D and 3D shapes. Most recently, we’ve been learning how to use compasses to draw circles and how to calculate the circumference of circles.

For music, we’ve been singing along to Pharrell William’s song ‘Happy’ and learning to play parts on the glockenspiel to accompany it.
