We have set our first learning target of the session. They are up on the wall for all to see and on our e-portfolios for us to update when we have achieved them.
The biggies went back to the maker space for a warm up of our engineering skills today.
Some Biggies reaction:
I learned that you don’t need a motor to make things go
Today I learned how to make changes in my work, I learned how to make rubber bands into a working motor and I learned how to improve the work I had already done!
I learned about how different weight can affect a moving thing and how different types of rubber bands can change how the speed works
I learned that you can do it you have to just believe in yourself
We have got to the end of our first week. The children are settling well and we are starting to think about our routines.
We have started reading Mr Johnston’s favourite book, Love That Dog. That means we read a lot of poems too. The first one we studied was The Red Wheelbarrow. The class all wrote poems based on this poem. They are great.
We a have also been working on a new class logo to represent out class, more of that later. And starting work on our Rights Respecting School class charter.
Today we had a visit from Steven from Future X, to show us what Future X entails and how to get involved. We had a great time:
The p7s have also been helping out with their buddies in p1, to make play dough and to get used to going for lunch.
Last session The Biggies choose some word to describe what they would like to learn. These proved useful in reviewing what we had done at the end of the year. So we did it again this session.
